    M-15, the finest looking production revolver ever IMHO. I may even pop one of those lightweight barrels on to a M-19. :eek:

    This is my pre- pre-Model 15. It was orginally manufactured as a 6" Target Masterpiece in January (?) 1949. It was then returned to the S&W factory and made into a Combat Masterpiece in May 1950 (according to Roy Jinks). From what I can tell, they most likely cut down the orginal barrel and pinned the front sight on to it.

    Very nice, but hard to find in my area:( I make due with my 2" 10-5. I recently sold a 12-3, S&W's seem to be going up in value.

    Prices of Model 15's

    What are the prices of Model 15's now? Say, in 85, 90, 95, and 100%. Give me your best guess.

    I found this Model 15 at a pawn shop and I HAD to rescue it. It had quite a few rust spots on it and had begun to pit pretty bad on the side plate. I knew with a little effort it was a "diamond in the rough". I sanded and polished it all I could, bought me some Badger grips off gunbroker and a target hammer and trigger. Soaked it in some vinegar to take all the bluing off, then took it to my local smith for a $75 bluing job. Results are as you see.
    I'm pleased.:)

    Former campus police gun. Shipped in 1977 to the University of Louisiana.

    And the pre-model number version, the Combat Masterpiece (pictured in back with its K22 cousin in the foreground).

    I actually own three, but the sweetest by far is this old K-38 Combat Masterpiece.
