    Model 67. Easy-to-care-for stainless steel, plus all the other attributes of the Model 15. Here's mine dressed up in her Crimson Trace laser grips:

    Just went to the desert over the weekend for some 4 wheelin and shooting. Shot a few cylinders full of 38 special from a Model 10 in 6" (my dads, he never mentioned he had one). It was a tapered barrel version, pinned in fact also, with the firing pin right on the hammer.

    It sure is a light weapon, shoots very accurate. The only I didn't like was the wood handles were a bit too squared for my liking, but I think thats an easy fix I would assume with uncle mikes rubber etc.

    Now I need to go find a model 15 to try out.

    Thanks boys.

    +1 Ruger Security Six, Speed Six, and Police Service Six.

    Try a Ruger; their 38 Special only guns are just 357 Magnums chambered in 38 Special.

    Here is my GF-84H "38 Special only"

    The Model 15 was called the "Combat Masterpiece" with good reason. It was one of the finest all-round .38 Special revolvers ever made.

    Model 65 is a fixed sight stainless steel Model 13 357 Magnum, not a 38 Special.

    The Model 64 is a stainless steel 38 Special Model 10 with fixed sights.

    Can't use +P+ in a M15.

    I recently bought a Rossi M851, 4" double action stainless in .38 special. $225, vent rib barrel, full underlug. Very nice shooting and looking gun.[​IMG]
