    I just registered with Firearms Talk hoping to gain in my knowledge and interact with other conversations about firearms.
    I came home from a gun shop yesterday, having an old Smith&Wesson 22 cal. pistol appraised. The pistol has a serial number of 384563 with a 6" barrel, hand extactor, in my research I believe it is called a kit gun. The man at the gun shop appraised it at 60% which showed a value of $1150, then he pointed out an extra comment saying that this pistol could be worth 200% of listed value. He did not say what serial number was needed to meet this criteria. Does anyone know why such a great jump in price is placed upon this pistol. Thanks.

    What is the model number? Where are the pictures? Open the cylinder and you will see the model number. I have a model 34-1 which was called a kit gun.

    Found model number

    After opening the cylinder there is a number stamped inside and it was 1599. No pictures, digital camera is down for the count.

    From the picture I would say it is a K22 Outdoorsman. The model 34 was known as a kit gun and is on a J frame.
