    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.

    Wife's Kit Gun is the Model 63
    Mine is the Ruger

    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?

    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.
