    My wifes grandfather has a Smith and Wesson .22 pistol. It's a single shot, and it opens lifting the rear sight. It has what look to be plastic grips, and it looks to be built on a revolver frame, minus the cylinder. The top stamp says modelof91 (no, I didn't forget the spaces, that's how it's stamped). What can you experts tell me about this. I really don't want to pay S&W $30 for an in depth analysis of this gun.

    Looks like a 2nd Model Single Shot. 4617 made between 1905-1909. Good photo by the way. Don't see a lot of them around in what appeas to be this good of shape. My guesstimate on value would be in the 575-625 range. Great piece of family history, should be duly honored IMHO.

    There does appear to be a bulge in front of the stamping. I apologize for the hugeness of the photo. I'm still learning how to use my scanner.
