Thanks for the info! This was my Grandfather's carry piece and holster! He carried a lot OC and CC as I was growing up. That is his last LTCH (the pink card), he died before he could get the life-time license.
I know, not the best choice to carry but it was his only pistol he ever owned and was very proud of it. This was the first pistol I ever shot, so it is double special to me and I will keep as long as I live.
The pistol is much better shape than the pictures show, it does have a little holster wear, just not as much as it looks in the photo. The box didn't fair very well, but at least I have it. The screwdriver is in real good shape without any rust or damage, so I don't think he used it very little.
Again, thank you for your knowledge about these wonderful pistols!
P.S. I also have a ton of old ammo, .22 and 16 gauge, the .22 boxes, I have a lot more in the bigger boxes they came in!

You are welcome Gun Bunny, and sorry for the delay posting these, but my middle boy had his season opening game tonight, which his team won-
Here are some pictures of just my K22 Model 17-3 by itself, it is quite a bit newer model than yours, about a 1971 issue: (Notice the different style of the screwdriver, and missing screw on the trigger gaurd compared to yours)

I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.
