For me, it has to be this performance center dash 8 example in nickle.
Her's mine from the 70's in nickel with Hogue grips
Those Hogues add no small amount of CLASS! I'll wager she's a real tackdriver.
Can't. Sold it.
MM- Yes it doed shoot nice. I've had it for about 15 years and its my favorite Smith. The Houges fit my hand perfectly.
M-15, the finest looking production revolver ever IMHO. I may even pop one of those lightweight barrels on to a M-19.
By the by, here's my m-15 shooter, very pleasant at the range.
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.
A 15-3 shipped 5/77 to "Louisiana University" in Lafayette.
Great minds travel similar paths!
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a WINNER!
Here is a couple of my M15-4 4".
Lets see a 2" one!
Your wish is my command!
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.
I saw a flawless m-15 nickle snub last month, had to pass it up, sob...
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.
my swag would be $275 and up...
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.
My Model 15 snubbie:
I also have a Model 15 with a 4" barrel but don't have a good pic.
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.
From the Orange County CA Sheriff's Office:
Here's my 4 inch Model 15, nothing fancy, just fun to shoot.
