    IMG_2262 (2).JPG Reading the threads about the Model 60 and Model 64 made it impossible to resist posting yet again more photos of the Model 64-5 3 inch I transferred yesterday. It's been in someone's safe for quite a while.

    Wow! I am pretty sure these great stainless Smiths posted today are a sign from the heavens telling me to go forth and acquire…

    Of course, I probably won’t find any as nice as that one. :D

    Very nice!

    That 3” is an uncommon one for sure, glad you were able to rescue it from the safe of eternal darkness. :thumbup:

    I think the God of stainless is smiling on us, I have a decent Model 65 .357 in the 10-day penalty box for another five days. ;)

    Stay safe.

    It went from the FFL to my home for a quick cleaning and then straight to the range. It was so easy to be accurate with I left the range smiling. It's now on the nightstand with the window open in the fresh spring air instead of in a safe. Looking forward to seeing your Model 65 too. I considered a 65 but couldn't physically inspect it and thought I'd be safer with a used k frame in 38spl.

    If you can handle the weight it is an excellent choice as a carry piece or just a handy revolver to have around. I actually prefer it and the M-10 to their 357 Mag cousins, the M13 and M65.

    Man, you guys know that posting good pics of your sweet K-frame acquisitions just further contributes to our addiction, right? 10s, 12s, 13s, 15s, 64s, 65s, you're killin' me, Smalls...

    I'd have been thrilled to find a 3" 64 like that. I'd been looking for one for years.

    Recently was offered a 3" 65 on a deal I couldn't belive. Just assumed a 3" 65 would always be out of my grasp. I just need to find a grip screw to put the magna grips and an T grip I got laying around it on and I'll have one of my grail guns set up just like I want.

    Nice find. I really like the K frames but was leery of buying a 357 magnum K frame w/o being able to inspect it first. You guys here got me itching for a 3 inch K frame before I stumbled across mine online. I'm looking for a holster now. What kind of holster is yours and do you like it?

    It's a Bianchi 5 Black widow. If you like OWB carry, it's a great holster.
