Well, I went into my local gun shop to get some decaping pins. Looking in the used gun case. 15-1 4 screw in somewhat rough shape. Light rusting here and there. Action seemed very tight. Bore good. Not much flame cutting. Dealer wanted $450, went to $400, I bit. Serial #K462386. I was told that is 1961.

This is officially an addiction. I have no need for this gun. I have a 4" 19-3 which I bought last year NIB.

I have my Dad's pristine 10-6.

Well, I cleaner it up. Rubbed the rust off with a cloth and some Kroil.

Hope to shoot it today or tomorrow.

You did great! Look at the cylinder and forcing cone - that gun has hardly been shot! Way to go...

nice catch !
(must be a moon phase thing, I spotted a 15 at our LGS just yesterday, similar price, tempting)

Took the 15 and friends to the range today. Put some target stocks on it for shooting. The originals are numbered to the gun.

15-1 right bottom, 10-6 right on top. 25-13 left bottom, 19-3 middle, 18-3 top.

Put about 150 rounds through the 15. Once I got it dialed in it was shooting very well. I don't think this gun was shot much, just banged around.

Had the SS guns along as well.

625JM on top, 617 middle, 620 in front.

Very nice afternoon. Need to ice the hand.

robctwo, nice tight groups "shot" there !

now that is what I'm talking about
mix-n-match calibers, but in same frame, length, weight, balance
(several such combos there within your family gathering)

if ye should "beware the man with one gun, because probably knows how to use it", then ye ought to be doubly impressed by the man with a bunch that look & feel like "one", because he can probably hit same/same with any one chosen at random without ever skipping a beat
(my own version consists of a family of seven "swappable" S&W k-frames, all in 6" barrels, but that sure is a mighty nice family of fours)

Thank you. I have a little family of 6" S&Ws as well. 25 Classic, 27-2, 19-3 6" and 66-2. Need that 17 to round it out,:cool:

With your nifty revolver collection, you might be interested in Cunningham's Revolver Doctrine class (http://www.grantcunningham.com/revolver_doctrine.html). You're fortunate it's in your own backyard.
