That's a beauty.

I can't get you very close but it would have to be 1967 or earlier as the 15-3 was introduced in 1967. I have a Model 15-2 from 1963 and it is fun to shoot.

Dang Stang , I was the 7th to look at that one this AM. By the time I got some business out of the way it was gone! Looks nice. Enjoy!
Thanks, Yeah, I know the seller we have done business together before. It is even better condition in person. I got a real steal. I was lucky on this one.

There are a lot of S&W's that I like, but I have come to the conclusion that my favorite is the Model 15. It's just a little lighter, a more svelte gun than even the Model 19, which was my first love.

My 15-2 is from 1966, (K679xxx) and has target hammer, trigger, trigger stop and diamond target stocks. I need to shoot it more.

I have a certain affinity for the Model 15. The first revolver I ever fired was my Dad's (now mine) K-22. When I joined the Air Force I was surprised to see the K-22 again. The Air Force used that gun to get us familiar with their official revolver, the Model 15. I shot expert with the K-22 (then the Model 17) and I could have done that with my eyes shut as I was so used to it. Then for my official qualification I shot with the Model 15 (this was in 1964 so it may well have been a Model 15-2. I shot expert again and every year for the next four years. Wonderful revolver.

In addition to my Dad's K-22 I now also own a Model 15-2 and a Model 15-3. And two Model 18's.
