I know you didn't make this up and I understand why it was done, but I think it was a lot of effort for a small advantage. This concept wasn't very popular......
First of all my mistake in typing, I should have written K-22, not K-38. Again, as I said, this did find favor with some lady bullseye shooters of the day. They did find the K-Frame a trifle heavy and large for their hands. The gun shown is the one used, I believe. Imagine it with a heavy barrel, notched and relieved for the ejector rod, and a front latch dovetailed under the barrel. The gun shown on the cover had Cloyce's stocks, I believe, which were laminated alternating maple and walnut.

And it was the lady featured in the article credited with coining the term "Smolt."

Incidentally, the revolver shown appears to have a Paine front sight, not a Patridge.

O.K. I went to a Smith & Wesson forum and the revovler shown they refer to as a pre-Model 35, with Patridge sights and sort of Magna stocks, referred to as a 22/32 Target.
