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.
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)

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