Smith & Wesson Brings Back the Model 648 Revolver in .22 WMR

Whether it’s small game you want to dispatch or targets you want to punch, Smith & Wesson has just brought back a K-frame revolver chambered in .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire that will make the job two tons of fun.

The stainless steel 8-round Model 648 features a six-inch barrel which, when combined with an adjustable rear sight should make this one very accurate wheel gun.

Here’s their press release . . .

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Smith & Wesson Inc. today announced that it has reintroduced the Model 648 revolver, chambered in .22 WMR.  Built on Smith & Wesson’s K-frame, the stainless steel Model 648 features an eight round capacity and is designed for small game hunting and target shooting.  The new Model 648 features an adjustable rear sight and patridge front sight for enhanced accuracy when shooting at longer ranges.
