Going to be looking at one of these later today. Any forum members own or shot this gun it is the dash 5 I have heard they come with a factory trigger job can any one confirm or deny this. As far as I know this is the only K frame fixed sight 3" with shrouded ejector rod. I don't see many of these for sale asking price is $475.00 opinions please!

That is a good price for a great gun. I really like the shrouded ejector rod.

They're getting hard to find, if it's good shape I think I'd be $475 poorer. Yes the factory tigger job and a tad lighter weight were selling points for the Ladysmith. I would love to come across one in lnib condition. Nice find.

I am not sure about the tad lighter, they had a shrouded ejector rod and the regular 65s did not.
Great price, super gun.
I wish that S&W had made a model 13 ladysmith.

I have a 3" 13 and love it I hope i like this 65 as well I generally prefer blue smith's but some that I have and want only come in SS such as my CS1 3" 686.

I like it well enough that it's the only non blue, pinned Smith & Wesson I own (Ok...technically it's my wife's. Don't tell her I said it was mine.)
