    Which .22 revolver most like a J frame...

    I'm wondering which .22 revolver is the most like a J frame. I shoot a 642 alot but thought it would be fun to have an identical .22 for practice and to teach my oldest teams how to shoot a snubby. I've found a few that are similar but is there one that's a dead ringer that I've missed because I can't find it. If you have one and could post a pic or model number, I'd appreciate it!
    Thanks and Thank God we survived black Friday!!

    it is nice and is pricey...I'll see what the best price I can get on it. I've also found a taurus that looks pretty much the same size and even has the cylinder latch in the same position/type....

    thanks!

    Sometimes you get what you pay for...the 317 is one of those times. I have the 3 inch with hiViz sights. Weight: 11 oz. Fits some of the holsters (open bottom) of my S&W 637. Great shooter and light for hiking, running ect. Taurus also has a similar 22, but it is not sold here in Mexifornia :( .

    Also check around I got mine at $150 off that listed MSRP.

    If I'm not mistaken (IE Taurus' website might be lying to me) the Taurus model most similar to a 642 but chambered in .22LR is no longer in current production.

    Looks like they have two long barreled models, but no snubs.

    You might be able to find a used one if such model exists, I wouldn't know what model number to give as I'm not as knowledgeable on Taurus history as some.

    That's too bad about the Taurus, I'll have to look. I like the S&W but don't think I can bring myself to spend that kind of money on a .22 snub. I'll spend a lot on a carry gun but...

    My wife only shoots her 317.
    Doesn't want anything to with any of my guns.
    She's a happy camper with her 317 at the range.
    Doesn't want CCW or even keep loaded in the house. She trusts I'll always be there for her.
    I tried to suggest at least keep the 317 loaded, as you all know it's better then nothing.
