View Full Version : Just get myself into the longest wait in my life (S&W 2206)

04-19-2012, 9:32 AM
I spotted a 2206 at a local shop two days ago. I'm not familiar with s&w's rimfire pistols. As I can tell, it has a higher build quality of 22A and budget version of 41. Close sibling with 422 and 622 (material on the frame), and take 41 mags.

I took two days thought about it and decided to pull the trigger on this one. Just went into shop and "purchased" it. But the they just told me that it just got bought by the shop since the owner is leaving the country so the shop will have to hold it for 30 days, than they are allow to dros it for me. So, I'm looking for going back in 30 day, start the dros, and wait another 10 days for pick up.

Sigh.. things we do for love... ;)

What year did they stop making them?

I bought my 6" stainless new in the mid-late 90's. It still looks like the day I bought it (mint) even though I have put more rounds through it than anything I own.

I believe they were only made from 87 to 97.

If the store bought it are they gonna do a SSE conversion or are you exempt from the roster?

This time span gives you the opportunity to prepare for the new arrival.
You may want to paint the nursery in a new soothing color andget a new crib and playpen for the new arrival.
Make sure you stock up with plenty of food to feed the new one and not that cheap walmart crap.
