    1953 K-22, 5 screw

    All good now.

    Gunsmith said it hadn't been shot enough to loosen up, so he tuned the action and reshaped the cylinder bolt which was dragging.

    A little touch of Van's cold blue, and we're headed to the range tomorrow to see how it shoots!

    Shot it for the first time today at 50yds.

    It's as accurate as the Model 41.

    Went back this morning and put a few more downrange.

    Sure is a nice change to only smoke up $10 in ammo. :)

    stored the original stocks and added a set of rosewood targets....better grip

  14. A very nice gun! Mine is a year older, 1952 vintage and has been a good companion for almost two decades.

    Shot a lot but still going strong.
