    This was my xmas present to myself. I've spotted this one on the website of the gunshop I've bought most of my revolvers from.
    S&W 15-3 with 2,5" barrel with its original box, wax paper and tools. Asked price was 400 but I offered 350 and off she went.

    That is an excellent find. Good examples of pinned barrel Model 15 snubs in that condition (and price) are pretty scarce nowadays.

    Sweet gun at an even sweeter price. Christmas 2016 I gave one to my son-in-law and the kid loves it. My daughter kicked in and we called it a family gift. I paid $500 for it. The gun was a Model 15-3 with a 4" barrell.

    You got one nice gun there for a great price. Enjoy shooting it. :)

    Congratulations on a beautiful gun, but are you sure that's not a 2 inch?

    I stand corrected, checked the box label and measured the barrel, you are right, it's a 2 inches barrel. Thanks.

    Looks like a 2" barrel to me.

    And you stole it for that price!

    That is one sweet deal.
    Were you wearing the mask of Zorro when you bought it :)
