Default 15-2

This recent Gunbroker pickup fulfills a long time desire for a 2" Model 15.
In my opinion, one of the best looking S&W's ever made.

I ‘ve been eyeballing these myself as of late. How much do they weigh compared to the model 19 snub?

The weight is pretty much the same as the Model 19 snub....

My 15-2 is the most accurate snub I own. Does amazing things at 50 feet.
Congrats on yours, you will love it.

That was a great pick-up! Congratulations. I found my 15-4 snub a couple of years ago. It is crazy accurate and really beautiful. There's just something special about the Md 15 snub with square butt frame.

I agree with you about the looks of the Model 15 snubby. They definitely set off the cool meter. My 2" 15-3 is easily the best shooting snubby I own. Enjoy yours and thanks for sharing.

Wow. Your photos could convince me to search out a "Model 10 with target sights." Kidding, of course. I usually fall for the M&Ps, but your Masterpiece is befitting of its name.

1. I love the Model 15.

2. Own and have owned quite a few.

3. Owned a snubby 15, sold it. Somehow
it just didn't look right with those sights
and decided to stick with the Model 10/64
for snubbies. (Certainly didn't shoot it
any better than the Model 10/64 snubbies.)

4. So, somewhere out there is a lovely snubby
just waiting for a new owner if it doesn't already
have one.

Your recently acquired 15-2 reminded me of my Model 15.....so I dug it out of it's hiding place and snapped a couple of photos. Had not seen it in a while. I've had both my snubby 15 and 19 to the range at the same time and I've a got to give a bit of an edge to the 15. It just feels a bit better when shooting.

Any way here is my 15-3 from 1971. Just a hint of bluing loss on both sides of barrel and a very imperceptible turn line.

Congratulations on a quality purchase.

Always wondered why Smith never made a round butt version or a 2" model 67.

I agree with you on the 2" 15. I looked off & on for around 2 years. Ended up with a 2", R.B. 10-5 instead. (not sorry) Bob

Default Model 15-3 2"

I looked for a long time before I found a 2" Model 15. I finally came across this nice Model 15-3 in late March of this year.

Model 15-3 2"
