Default Model 65-3 lands Friday

Made an online purchase of a Model 65-3 3Ē dao. I put my hands on it tomorrow, Friday...9/7/18. Itís slightly finish challenged both stocks and frame but nothing that some patient work wonít fix. I have received the info on posting pics so I am planning on doing before and after pics on the 65, wonít be that dramatic of a change but what the heck. My S&W family is now at a half dozen and if the picture posting goes well Iíll share the rest with the forum. 📷

That should be a great revolver. I can't seem to win a 3" k frame on my budget.

Congratulations, I think you'll be very happy with your 65-3. I stumbled across a 3" 65-3 a few months ago and wasted no time in buying it. Just qualified with it a couple of weeks ago, scored 100%, and now carry it for work. It's hard to beat a 3" K frame.

I'm a 3" K frame addict and can't seem to stop buying them. They just feel perfect and are really about as easy to conceal as a 2 or 2.5".

Default Got it

Got it today and it looks better in person than in the ad. Very nice, solid, good feel and balance. A little heavier than I was thinking though. It’s a spurless hammer DAO but the trigger pull is a bit too heavy, get that fixed and this thing would be slick! Nice model, round butt S&W factory Combats. Glad to have it.

Went to the range today for the M65sí first time out for me. Shot fmj .38ís and sjhp .357ís, the gun ran fine, a pleasure to shoot. The recoil with magnums very reasonable, not an issue. The rb combats are not quite long enough for my hands but they are reasonably comfortable. The 3Ē barrel shoots where you point, a little surprising for me as itís the shortest barrel gun I have and I thought that might show.

I want to start posting pics but I now do most of my online stuff with an IPhone and I donít know how to make it happen. I have gone to advanced settings, attachments, etc and still canít do it. Donít know if I should use my digital camera then use a hard line to the laptop or continue working to do everything on the IPhone. My apologies to the forum because I know it didnít happen if there arenít pictures to prove it, argh😫
