I am the 3rd owner. Was BNIB to second owner.

I thought if it had a six inch barrel and a Patridge front site it was a Model 14. Goes to show what I know.

After the model 14 was (temporarily) discontinued, the model 15 was offered with 4 and 6" heavy barrels; the latter (the one pictured) is a model 14 in all but name. Enjoy!
