Those are both nice. I prefer Target grips like on your 14 but I put a Tyler T on my 15 and it seems to feel pretty good so I'll see how it shoots with that set up.

Looks like it was someones nightstand gun and they periodically cleaned and cared for it. Great find and congrats on the new revolver.

San Diego Police Dept used 6" model 10's until the 50's and switched to model 14's. I have both surplus models which shoot amazing groups when my eyes work. The model 10 was made in 1948 when I was born and the 14 is from 1957. My 14 has the target hammer and trigger. They are going to my sons someday.

Nice looking specimen you found there! Like Iowegan I have a Model 15 and a Model 14 and they are favorites along with a 17 and 18 (a classic quartet). My 15 is a dash 2 with a 4" barrel and my 14 is set up as a target gun with the three Ts. You should really enjoy that one - congratulations.

I had a S&W Model 19 6 inch barreled .357 that had the Partridge style of front sight. That fine revolver was traded straight across for my current S&W Model 17 6 inch barreled .22LR. Even though I have a very nice S&W Model 66 no dash .357, I would like to get another Model 66 or 19 in a 6 inch barrel. But a nice Ruger GP100 5 inch would also fill this gap very nicely!!!

Nice pickup. I was shooting an 03a3 converted into a sporter with nice walnut stock. I purchased it from a marine who was going to the sandbox. He had gotten ti from a friend. I was the only shooter out of 20 or so shooting a wood stocked blued centerfire. I am not a fudd I love mini 14s and ars just s classic rifle touches some people's souls mine included.

Very nice find Mikes 1707. I also like the older Smithís. Nice bluing, craftsmanship and trigger. Definitely any model would be on my firearm pinup calendar. Proud owner of a model 10 M&P, two 629s and the Chiefís Special I just found about a month ago. Itís nice to see the Classic series released.

Nice 36 Rugerfan. I recently picked up a well used pre 36 Chiefs Special and couldn't resist trying Brownell's cold blue on it. The results were great, no regrets. Good shooting gun too.
Thanks all for the replies.
