Smith & Wesson 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.

“Built on the medium K-frame, the Model 648 is back in production to satisfy the needs of handgun owners who are looking to achieve greater  distance while hunting or target shooting,” said Jan Mladek, general manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands. “… The Model 648 has been designed with features to boost accuracy at longer distances.  While we currently offer .22 Magnum revolvers in both our J-frame and Classics line, we are excited to add this new .22 Magnum revolver to the modern K-frame lineup.”

MSRP for the revolver is $749.
