Default Model 15

Do any of you have a Model 15? A LGS is offering any of about 8 of them that were trade ins, for $275. All have seen use, and all are 4" barrels. A couple look pretty good.

I am more interested in a Model 19, but I am not sure if I can pass this up. I am looking for opinions.

Model 19s all seem to be refurbished and pretty pricey.

Thanks,

A decent price, depending on condition, especially if any are pinned and recessed. Good accurate revolver that, with .38 Special ammo, will last longer than you will.

Buy all you can manage at that price. That is my advice. Damn good classics, money in the bank.

Of the 8 of them, 2 are in pretty good shape and the rest from fair to poor to look at. On all 8 the cylinders seem to lock up good, not a lot of space between the cylinder and the forcing cone, and the hammers all lock back solidly. All the triggers seem good. So some of them ain't purdy, but all look mechanically good. I may go grab one.

Great project guns for a student who wants to learn gun smithing and reblueing.
As long as they are mechanically sound. I would open it up when you get it home and inspect the springs. The good news is, you can still get parts.

I've had a 15 for thirty years. It is a great gun and that is a good price.

The one I have (with the original blue cardboard box and price of $69.95) is still one of the best I have.

Now, I'm not saying that I bought it for that price, but the box matches the serial number.
