Default Smith Model 67

Can anyone comment on the merits of owning and shooting the model 67, especially current production ones?

Do the current production Model 67 have one, two or three piece barrels?

I am thinking about one of these over a 686 because I like the size of the K-frame and rarely shoot magnums.

Default K-frames are a joy to shoot!

No two ways about it. I have model 67 as well as several model 15s. They are not for sale. I would say that anyone that does not have one should. They are drying up and going up in price. The pre lock ones that is. I have no experience with the current production K frames. Not really looking to either.

My 67-6 has the lock and has a one-piece barrel and came with a set of Crimson Trace round-to-square butt conversion grips.
As I understand it the two piece barrel started with the 67-7.
IMO, mine is just as good as my 15-5 with the advantage of being stainless steel.

Mine is a -3 LEO trade-in.
After cleaning and tuning, it's my field pistol silhouette gun.
I use a +P 160 grain handload in it.
Very accurate out to 100 yards.

I have a -5 with a 1 piece barrel but everything else purists hate. Bought brand new, sent it off to Frank Glenn and just asked him to make it right which he did as the action/accuracy is phenomenal. I added a set of Culina combats and this revolver is one of my absolute favorites.
