It really depends (as previous posters have shown) on what your definition of “set” might be. I’m on my iPad right now, but on my laptop I have my “set” of “little guns”... a pre-War Terrier, a post-War transitional I-frame 32 HE Snub, and a Baby Chief, each one an example of the small snub genre. I also have a 1948 vintage K-22 and -38 to be grouped with my newly recreated Model 16-3. Not actually a true “set,” but as close as I’m likely to come in that department. I guess for me, the important criterion is to put together a grouping based on some unifying theme (in my mind, at least! ). I’ll post pictures when I get back to my laptop.

PS Picture of "trifecta" added... clockwise from top; Baby Chief, 32 HE, Terrier. Finish not as bad as picture makes them look... bad lighting.

Every time I see some of these snubbies, it reminds me of Broderick Crawford and the show “Highway Patrol” I used to watch sometimes as reruns with my grandpa I n the early ‘60s.

I can still see him drawing and holding a snubbie...

Here’s my “set” of K-frame Targets... two vintage 1948 Masterpiece revolvers, the K-22 on top and the K-38 on the bottom, both all original including grips, and with the -22 showing much more use. In between is my K-32 homage, assembled using an original K-32 barrel on a Model 14-3. It is “shod” with a new pair of Altamont Roper-style grips in American Walnut. To be a “real set,” this last gun would have to be in the earlier style with lighter barrel and narrow rib, but it is what it is and I’m just glad to have gotten as close as I have.

That's very cool. I never knew that about the ribs. I had read that they tried to match the weight etc. of the set. I just didn't think about how they did it. Learned something today.

Oops, in reply to Tom K's post.

That's all I'm looking for. Whatever anyone feels is a set. Like a bunch of models in the same finish or the same model in multiple finishes, or a group of same size frames, or a group of snubs, or a group in the same caliber or the same caliber in different frame sizes, or the same model in different dash numbers. It's pretty open to interpretation.

I don't have "pair" pictures of mine, but if you don't mind pairs of singles.

4" Model 66-1



4" Model 19-4



4" Model 27-2



4" Model 28-2



4" Model 15-3 "38 Combat Masterpiece"



4" K-22, "22 Combat Masterpiece"



And they all have 4" barrels.
