The junior high I went to had a bunch of the 22Ks that they never used- I think I used one once for a rainy football game.

Also, Conn made, for a brief stint, a 24K... which is the four valve version of the 22K - I've only ever seen pictures, but the fourth valve wrap was better set up than the 40K and it's equivalents.

It was probably easier to manufacture - no complex bends like on the 40K, just crooks and straight tubing.
