HG0084 Advances in metallurgy that made this revolver possible began in earnest during the 1930s. It is the descendant of the Air Crewman series of ultra lightweight revolvers issued to our forces in limited quantities during World War II on an experimental basis, and then during the 1950s as the Smith & Wesson Airweight revolvers. In February of 1997, the .22 Airlite made its debut at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. This specimen is one of the current production variants, the 317-2, second engineering change with internal lock. Frame is magnum type J frame, lightweight alloy with Smith & Wesson Clear Cot protective covering. Barrel is two piece, alloy housing a 1 7/8 inch steel barrel proper. Cylinder is alloy as well, the same as the Air Crewman was. Hammer and trigger are Case Colored Metal-Injected-Molding, .312 smooth combat trigger and .240 short spur service hammer. Note the grooved trigger guard and lanyard groove on the backstap of the grip frame. These features add both lightness and strength. Weight empty is only 10.9 ounces, about 11 1/2 ounces fully loaded with 8 rounds of .22 LR ammunition. Grips are Smith & Wessons new attractive boot style grip with combat finger grooves. Action is traditional double and single action. Lest folk dismiss the .22 Long Rifle cartridge as anemic, the definitive 1986 FBI Report rates it as one of the most lethal of all calibers. That is certainly true with our favorite round, the Aguila Super Max that rates 1800 feet per second from rifles, and in the 1400 fps range for small handguns like this one. This particular specimen of the 317 AirLite comes to us from one of our civilian friends in Alabama; from its condition and our knowledge of its exclusive owner, it has been fired fewer than 100 rounds. Its only surface detractions are moderate cylinder rotation marking and minimal carbon blacking on the cylinder face and under side of the frame top strap. We rate it as Excellent in Box, since no more than 5 percent of its surfaces exhibit any wear indicators by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice so that our distinguished shoppers can judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly excellent mechanically; bore, cylinder chambers and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. It is in its original box with all its papers, both keys for its internal lock, and its original factory red cable lock. The only thing that is missing is its fired brass case, but from its CND serial number prefix, we estimate it was manufactured in late 2009. Replacement pricing on the 317 Airlites in our area, if a person can even find one, is $600 or more. We’re offering this one, however, for only $ 489.95.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
