    14-2 Three T

    I can't think of a way to improve on this timeless design.
    (OK, remove the Tyler T for you hardcore purists!) :)

    Smooth action, natural in the hand, inexpensive, and shoots like a little rifle.

    That's purtier than an Appy colt.

    You will enjoy that one.

    You sure that's not a 15? 14s usually do not have the sloped front sight in my experience.

    Hello friends and neighbors // Nice snag/save, .38 is a great round, smooth yet powerful.

    I just looked at a beat 15-3 for $450 ...way too much.
    Then lucked into a decent, say good, 3" model 36 no dash for $200 plus 14.00 tax.

    No where near that pretty.

    BTW the 1905 4th change looks as broken in as the day you sent it and still shoots as sweet.

    I am a big fan of the .38 Special revolver. Great design wether it be S&W or old school Colt DA.

    I thought the target sights counted as a "T". And I'm sure them Colts ain't inexpensive.

    Not much can beat a .38 masterpiece. I feel sorry for those who do not have the privilege to use one. However, recently, my 38/44 outdoorsman is giving it some competition.

    [​IMG] my model 10-5 3" and my model 36 no dash. Both have crimson trace laser grips to help make up for aging eyes.

    query

    I thought the 14 had the partridge front sight and the 15 had the Baughman "quick draw" front sight.

    Please don't take this as criticism

    I am a fan :D

    Looks like 3 Ts to me. Target sights, target trigger, and target hammer.
