Look on the butt of the revolver.
If you call S&W, they will tell you.
i think 1966
Your Smith and Wesson K-22 was made in the year 1948,with the serial number K20708.That year the serial numbers were K18732-K73121.I hope that you find this informative.
Minty K22's can bring $500, or more in rare variations. I don't think that is the serial number however. The serial number will be found on the butt of the gun, not inside the crane.
K130218 was produced in 1951
Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson, 3rd, ed.
You must call S&W. The number you list does not follow normal conventions.
100-400 or so
Call S&W with the serial number or look it up in the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson, 3rd ed by Supica and Nahas.
1948. Worth spending the $30 to get it lettered by Smith and Wesson, IMHO.
I just saw this gun on the SW website. Suggested price new of over a thousand dollars
The HMS K22, which used to be the K13, was badly damaged in a (friendly) marine accident. It was right at the end of World War I, and she was eventually scrapped.
The value of a firearm depends a lot on its condition. That can be anything from "like new" to badly worn and treated. Subject K22 can be worth anything from $150 to $700 depending on its condition. A good source for gun values is the "Blue Book of Gun Values" This is published yearly. Your local public library may have a copy in their reference section.
You dont tell us which version, so we dont know if you have the K22 Target or Combat Masterpiece. In any event, $250-$450.
Less than 100 to over 1000 depending on specifics.
Made in 1947, so very collectible. What barrel length? What kind of sights, trigger, hammer? How much of the finish is left. Are the grips original. Do you have the box and papers that came with it? These all affect "value". Go to this web site to see one of the same vintage - http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=8703895 Prices can range from 300-1000
Colt M1911 chambered with the .45 ACP. No pistol has been made that is better than the original Colt. Still used today by some military and police. The Smith & Wesson K22 is the best revolver ever made.
