I inherited a .22 LR (I think it’s just called a 22?) with a 6″ barrel last year. I feel bad, I am not a big revolver guy, and the gun is too big for the wife, so it hasn’t been used more than once since it has been in my possession. It is pretty though, serial number is low 4 digits, so I think its an early model. 

 

Nice to meet you all.

Good to have you around the DWF! Thanks for posting here first; that’s a good looking 722; (7 for stainless models).  An easy way to get to like revolvers is to go buy a brick of 22LR and go have fun!

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

I have a handful of other 22’s. I personally have a Ruger Mark IV 22/45 lite which I love, and use to target shoot with. My wife is into revolver’s, but this gun is physically too big for her hands.

Welcome to the Forum! You have a nice 722(The 7 denotes stainless). They are very accurate and are built on the same frame as the .357’s, thus the size and weight.

Yeah, every time I pick it up, it surprises me at just how heavy it is. I always expect a .22lr to be small and light. I think just seeing this thing would be a deterrent to anybody who saw it, if you know what I mean.

FYI, Model 22 debuted in 1979. Stainless guns started in 1981, 82. In 1986 they changed the serial number format so the caliber and B or S for blue or stainless preceded the numerals and was part of the serial number. The upshot is, your gun is not an early one. Probably 30,000 22s preceded yours. As far as value, it depends on condition and whether the original box, paperwork, type of grip and tool accompany it. Stainless 22s are worth a premium over blue. Your grip is an inexpensive Pachmyer Presentation grip. Without box and tool I would estimate 650 to 750. With the box, tool and factory zebra grip it could go as high as 950.
