Just arrived, a model 67-5, .38spl, 4" tube. Feels good in the hand with the stock rubber grips, double action trigger is a full smooth pull and won't stage, single action is crisp. Built a box of rounds of 125 grain polymer coated Precision bullets over a good charge of W231, will baptize it come Monday at the cop range. Oh joy.

I like it. It looks like a Model 64 with adjustable sights. I bet it will shoot great. Give us a range report after Monday.

... The 125gr. bullet has been known to be a bit hard on K Frames. 148 or 158gr. bullets would be more gun friendly.
It's not a 357mag, it's a .38spl and 4 grains of w231 isn't a +P load under a 125 grain bullet. but, i do have acme 150 and 158 loads to test out as well. all in the name of accuracy.

Got to baptize it this past Monday night ... super easy to shoot, sights were on the money at 5 to 15 yards, trigger pull smooth and with no staging (unlike my 642c snubby). The accurate load for me was 3.7 grains of W231 under a 158 grain Acme hi-tec. Love this revolver.

Nice looking gun! The 125gr. bullet has been known to be a bit hard on K Frames. 148 or 158gr. bullets would be more gun friendly.
That refers to 125 .357 Magnum, NOT .38 special and specifically to the M19. Shoot all the 125s you want through your M15
