Very nice revolver made with stainless steel and an excellent finish but is it worth the MSRP asking price? There must be more to this revolver than meets the eye.
I still have my 1980′s 66 with nylon grip. It was my first LE sidearm. It is nice to see that there is still demand for it. I would prefer it without the lock if I was not very happy with the one I still enjoy.
Richard, the K frame model 15 when introduced back in the day was named “Combat Masterpiece” it was basically a M&P 38 special with adjustable sights and a 4″ barrel. Smith later introduced the model 19 with a 4″ barrel adjustable sights in 357 mag this one was named “Combat Magnum”. Then each previous model came out in stainless steel, the 38 was named the model 67 and again “Combat Masterpiece” and the 357 was the model 66 “Combat Magnum”. It is the same as any company having names for there deferent models like “Redhawk”.
