One of the most lethal self-defense revolvers that there is, this Smith & Wesson Airlite is a later refinement of the Model 51 Smith & Wesson .22 Magnum. It weighs in at only 10.6 ounces, about the same as its Scandium Magnum siblings from the Smith & Wesson line. This revolver features the standard groove rear sight, and a high visibility fiber optic front sight. The double action trigger pull is always stiff on Airlites, and that is necessary to produce sufficient firing pin pressure so that hard-primer ammo like CCI will ignite dependably. Factory specs area as follows: caliber .22 Magnum only; single or double action; 1 7/8 inch barrel; 6 3/16 inches over all length ; weight empty 10.6 ounces; cylinder capacity 7 rounds; frame size same as M or J frame; metal finish black matte; finger groove combat laminate grips; MIM, metal-injection molded trigger and hammer. Now. A word about finish. In the lightweight Smith & Wessons, especially those with scandium, titanium, and high tensile aluminum alloy frames like these, carbon residue is a constant problem on the white finished revolvers. Black is better; black finish revolvers do not show carbon as bad as the white ones, and the carbon is extremely difficult to remove on scandium or titanium. Own one of these fine little lightweight .22 Magnums for only $ 629.95
