Why is this revolver called a "22/32 kit gun" ?
This followed me home last night
"kit guns" were meant to be carried in bags, not holsters. Thrown in a tackle box, travel kit, etc. Hence the name kit.
Thanks for the info !
That covers the "kit" part (hunting/packaing camping kit). The 22/32 bit means it is a .22 caliber gun on a .32 caliber frame. The I/J frame was designed as a .32 caliber frame design originally. This is analogous to the ".38/44" models, which were .38 caliber guns on .44 frames (N).
Thanks Oro !
