I just purchased a S & W J frame model 63, 22 revolver. Very nice piece in my opinion a little pricy for a 22 but the quality is there. The weapon shoots very tight groups and will shoot anything you feed it. What say you?

Yes, It looks exactly like that. Same 3 in barrel and grip. Just Love it. Single or double action this weapon is a blast to shoot.

Congratulations!

The S&W 63, albeit just a lowly .22 LR, always factors into my short list of the "one handgun I would keep if I could only keep one."

I bought my 63 (pictured below, with 4" barrel) USED back in 1981 -- and it's still as tight and straight-shooting as the day the previous owner bought it... :cool:

The older 6" Model 35 was the best-shooting J frame .22, in my experience, and was the only J frame .22 that came close to matching the trigger and accuracy of the K frames of the same caliber, at least for me.

That's a Patridge front sight. The previous owner was a competitive shooter (.22 and .45) who wanted a practice handgun for his competitions that could also double as a field piece when he went hiking. He put that front sight on to give it more of a target profile. He also put on the upgrade stocks.

He had two 63's in that configuration, and decided to part with one of them -- my gain! :)

Congrats on your Mod 63.

I have heard people over the years complain regarding the price of a quality 22 rimfire. Lots of people seem to think the rimfire should be cheaper than a centerfire. If both are built to the same standard, the price will be comparable.

Thanks on the congrts guys, truth be told I bought this one twice. Traded it then I missed it so badly I bought it again as a used gun and it was 50.00 cheaper. I am the first owner and the second. Go figure. Is it just me or have others done the same?

That all sounds about right to me.

The J Frame S&W 63 is a great little gun, I was amazed how accurate it is. Fits in ones pocket and is easy and smooth to shoot.
