Thank you for the quick response. By chance do you know if the model 15-2 came with a 6in barrel?

According to the SCSW, you would have to wait ‘til 1986 -15-5- to get a6” tube. The Model 15 is aka the Combat Masterpiece. The Model 14/ Target Masterpiece is primarily a target gun. The same gun with a 4” ( later 6” and 8-3/8ths”) barrel was called the Combat Masterpiece until 1957, when model numbers replaced named models. Hank

Gabe, any chance of getting some additional pictures? One of the crane area showing the “15-2” stamp, one of the other side, one of the butt showing the serial number. And one showing the left side of the frame with the stocks removed. Thanks,Hank.

Maybe it’s the lighting, but the frame and barrel seem to have a slight difference in the color of the blueing. I have old eyes! Hank

Hello Gabe. Welcome to the forum.

Another 15-2 here, also from 1966. Your's is just a bit older than mine, going by the S/N. Mine is in the K679XXX range. Mine wears period correct diamond target stocks and has the target hammer, trigger, and trigger stop.

They are fine shooters. I tell people here, I go back and forth of which is my favorite S&W, the Model 15, or the Model 19. Since this is about the Model 15, the Model 15 is my favorite. :)

I won't sell that gun because it would be too hard to find another set of diamond targets like those. The gun itself, not so much.

I've also got a really nice set of smooth Rosewood targets I need to find the right gun for.

Altamont makes very nice grips for most revolvers. They won't be period correct, but they look nice, and are reasonably priced. Here's a set on my Model 24-6.

Hey Gabe,

I'm thinking....previous owner may have wound a M-14 barrel on your revolver. Or, simply changed the front sight?

Notice the Patridge Sight? That is what came on the M-14.

S&W did make six inch Combat MasterPiece Revolvers. They had the Baughman Ramp Front Sight, same as the 4".

Hope this helps.

Later, Mark

I definitely plan on keeping my 15-2 I was just thinking about changing the grips and possibly the barrel.
