Default Did I really need another 3" K frame?

I just bought a pretty decent 13-3 with a three inch barrel at the Birmingham gun show for $300.00. It had a Hogue rubber monogrip on it, and some surface rust underneath it, which I mostly got taken care of by an application of Mother's metal polish. Thing is, I've already GOT a nice three inch 13-3 at home, only the one I just bought was blued, and the one I had is nickel. I tried to justify this purchase, and finally decided I just wanted the thing, and bought it. This can really become a sickness; I need professional help.......

Just posted pics with a crappy cell phone camera; on the left side under the trademark, you can see what's left of the surface rust from the rubber grips. Mother's really did a pretty good job; I'd love to see more pics on this thread of other guns like these.

Remember all the money that you waste on professional help means there is less for 3" K frames. Great deal on a great gun. I have had a bunch of the 3" K's and the 13 is my favorite. Can't really remember when I have not had one or more around the house. Although personal preference is to the dash 2 or below your new treasure is a good one.

Understand - just acquired a 3" M65 on GB and actually paid just a little more than I wanted to for it.
My motivation was the level of regret I had over selling a 3" M66 a few years back for the sum of $375. I was afflicted with 1911-itis at the time and was in 'fund raising mode'.
Really like the 3" M65 and would have jumped on a similar M13 if I had been able to locate one.

Three inch barreled J-frames are just wrong. Throws off the whole balance of the gun. Three inch barrels are only suitable for K-frames. Sell that gun immediately, before you become addicted.


Edit...Oops, sorry. Wasn't paying proper, or apparently any, attention to what I was reading. Three inch K-frame Smiths are my favorite revolvers.

Congrats on the M13. I think I looked at that gun yesterday. If it had been nickel you probably would not have seen it. I already have a blue.

Mark,
Nice score for 300 beans man.
I'd been on that like a Duck on a June Bug.
It is a sickness but there ain't no known shot

Nice! And a good self help program combines shooting your S&W, and then cleaning it. Great therapy!

Well, I'm a professional and I'm here to help. So, just send me the gun and you won't have to feel bad any more about buying something you didn't really need!

Hey, I don't NEED any of them, but I still buy them. Sounds pretty normal to me.................

Sure you need more 3" K frames!

I was looking for a good stainless revolver to carry in the mountains here in Colorado. Was in a pawn shop in Colorado Springs with my brother and saw a 3" Model 65 laying in the case. I said to myself "Now that - is a badass gun."

The 65 led to a Buds 3" model 10 and then a 3" model 13. Now I want a 3" 64 and 547. Also looking at 3" J frames.....

Dont fight the sickness, just collect them!

I had wanted a 3.0 inch barrel Model 13 or Model 65 for many years when I came across a 3.0 inch barrel Model 64-3 at a decent price a few years ago. I later was able to acquire a Model 13-3, and then a Model 65-3, each with the 3.0 inch barrel. Congratulations on a good deal and a fine acquisition.

Regards,

Dave

Very nice gun you have there. I really enjoy shooting a 3" K frame. I saw a set of RB targets like yours sell for $125 on ebay recently. WOW.

Great gun at a great price, especially since it looks like it cleaned up well -- you just got your money back and turned a profit.

If it's still a touch rougher than your other M13, this is the shooter that preserves the other -- a smart purchase of a perfect platform.

Of course you need it. Until Saturday I had none, but I fixed all that with the purchase of this RB 3" 64-3. I took it to the range just a little while ago, and I was very happy with the way it performed. It came with some Pacs, which fit horribly, and these Hogue's which are pretty good. Now I'm shopping for some nice stocks for it. It's a great fixed sight gun with a great feel.

yes, you really did need it. Of course you did, don't be silly. K-Frames are lovely, I have a '68 2" .38 RB.
I could use another also. There's always room for more right?

In the absence of $300. model 13 deals , one might build their own
model 65 3 inch ..

Time for a model 65 project. 4in. to 3 and round butt. No LadySmith.




























You did well , friend.
Don't look back.

No, you don't need professional help. Yes, you did need another 3" 13-3. Now it's time to start on 13-2s.

What is the correct number to have? Like a few of the finer things in life, the perfect number is generally, one more.

I'm seeing Ahrends on the left, but can't decide if they're bananas or boot grips without the finger grooves; factory magnas in the middle; and I can't tell what's on the right.

We need a rule that all non-factory grips have to be identified by the poster.

Ahrends Cocobola boots (hand-rubbed oil) on a 13-4, Ahrends Fiddleback Maple boots (hand-rubbed oil) on a 13-3, and Factory Magnas on a 13-2 (middle revolver).

Sir, if we could only get our government to invest as wisely as you we would all be much better off. So go out and find another smoking deal on a 3 inch. Sound economics.

Deciding you just want it is good enough reason to buy it! Good show!

Jframe, I've concluded that you are suffering from the dreaded S&W disease. There is no known cure for this disease. We tried putting folks who had this disease on sunny tropical islands and guess what happened? Besides chasing the very lovely ladies that lived there once they found an internet connection we were besieged with these funny little boxes marked S&W. We had to give up that form of treatment. But be of good cheer. Many here on this forum also have the same disease. And you have greater access to many fine S&W revolvers. See how it all works out for the best. Frank

Aloha,

At that price, I'd buy them until the money ran out.

The Wife likes them as home defense guns.

We don't have as much as we need......

Thumbs up

I don't currently own a 3in K-frame .357. A 3in Mod.19 is one of my grail guns , but if I ever saw a nice 3in Mod.13 , especially for $300 , it would be mine!

So what if it's not a P&R gun. That makes it a carrying gun instead of a safe queen.

A 3" Model 13 for $300? I must not be living right. You did the only sensible thing.
