Our Assessment: This is an extremely nice .22 Long Rifle pocket pistol complete with extra magazine, pouch and original box. This isn’t the smallest .22 auto we have seen, but it sure isn’t the largest either. It is small enough to carry just about anywhere and certainly better than throwing rocks. In this fine condition, the pistol is very likely to attract the attention of S&W collectors.
