K22 vs K17

What are the differences between the K22 and K17 (or is it M17) ?

The look the same to me.

My LGS has the 17 - a tad pricey, though.

I have never heard it called a "K17" or an "M17"

They are both the same gun. S&W official designation, when they went to model numbers instead of "Outdoorsman" and such, was the Model 17.

The "K-22" name was used to distiguish it from the other "K" framed target models. The "K-38" and the "K-32", as a sort of "official" nickname.

It gets confusing when the 4" model has a different number Model 18.

IMO the Model 17 is the greatest .22 da ever made. some might prefer the Colt Diamondback, and the Dan wesson has some fans. I don;t have a Colt But I have a DW and I much prefer the S&W.

Depending on age and condition a K-22 can bring an impressive amount on the market.

it did say Model 17, now that I think back.

Thanks.

This one looks new. Has a zip tie holding the hammer down. No turn lines.

$800+

M17 is just short for model 17.

I'm no S&W expert, but the M17 is a K22. K22 was just the designation before S&W started giving model numbers to their revolvers.

My dad has an old(er) model 17 8 3/8". By far my favorite revolver! I can't remember when it was made (thinking 60's). I remember shooting it as a little kid. Every time I shoot it I try to get it from him. He just says not until I'm gone.

I wonder if the newer ones even compare in quality/accuracy? I want a 617. Probably just hope to find an older one used. Don't want one with a lock.
