On a side note here, Hibbard Hardware introduced the "True Value" trademark name in 1932. I do not know if this revolver was ever fired since it left the factory in 1929.

When I was 16 years old, my BIL purchased a Model 53 S&W for me. For y’all that don’t know it was chambered in .22 Jet, which was simply a .357 mag necked down to .22 caliber. The case looked somewhat like the Hornet. Remington claimed 2400 FPS but it didn’t get there with factory ammo. A forty grain bullet at 2100 out of a 6” revolver barrel is still pretty impressive though, but it would (and did) ruin your ears. This was almost sixty years ago, so hearing protection was all but nonexistent. I traded it for a High Standard target pistol in .22 short. Very accurate little pistol but not nearly as collectible (in my mind) as the Model 53. Just one of the many gun regrets that I have.

I has a Model 53 in the 8 3/8" barrel. I had to reload it with the Hornet bullets to get it to really perform. >222 bullets just shot better than the .224. It had inserts that went into the cylinder to shoot .22 rimfire. I was shooting it at 100 yards on the range and a guy was so impressed that he bought it from me right there, at a premium price.

Lol, Model 63-5 and 617 S&W 10shot. The Model 63-5 is real dirty cause it rides with me on the tractor or goes in the tackle box.

I used to tote my 63 when I was mowing a big field next to my house where I used to live. I mowed the neighbor’s field once a year in self defense, it kinda sorta kept the rats at bay. It was lots of fun to plink at rats as they ran out of the tall stuff into the part I had mowed. Once in a while they would pause long enough for me to actually hit one !

I did get to kill two coyotes with it one morning while mowing a power line R. O. W. on a deer lease. The first one came out and began mousing and just stared at me from about 35/40 yards when I stopped. Bad mistake ! The second one came out after I got through and was waiting on my buddy to bring burgers I slipped up on him to around fifty yards and ran out of cover, had a short pine tree in front of me for a rest and I plopped one in him. They don’t run far with a .22 bullet in the lungs ! When I was a lot younger I was a good handgun shot. Sadly, that isn’t the case anymore…….

My grandpa has one just like it. He got his a long time ago. I think he paid $63 dollars for it if I remember right.

I don't have no pretty .22 pistols. Just a Heritage Rough Rider .22lr/.22mag but it's pretty beat up lookin. It's been used quite a bit.

I would regret that one also. I still want a Model 53, even knowing they had problems. Still an interesting round.

So many nice rigs posted so far. I'm always on the lookout for a good deal on an older, clean model 41. No luck yet! Lol. I call this one the "hand rifle" Not at all a classic, but a sure enough shooter. Started life as a Ruger, but several Volquartsen upgrades later it is a frankenstein that shoots stupid small groups at 50 yds. Too much fun shooting suppressed.
