Default Any Model 67 fans out there?

I just picked up this 67-1 Combat Masterpiece and was wondering if there is a big following for these...they seem to have a lot going for them.

Stainless steel...what's not to like there?

.38 Special...cheap and easy to reload, lots of load varieties, great trail caliber, mild recoil.

Red ramp front, blued rear sights...nice compliment to the stainless, looks great.

Smooth combat trigger...very comfortable.
4" barrel...perfect for packing and hiking.

This is definitely a keeper. Any comments?

A four-inch .38 with adjustable sights may be the best general purpose package any gun maker ever made. Construct it out of stainless and you improve ease of maintenance in humid environments. A winning design.

That's a fine gun. If you are happy with it (and you sure seem to be), that means you are a completely rational human being.

Beautiful gun. I like the model 67 and its blue counter part the model 15. They are fine shooting handguns.

The K-38 evolved with the times. Take a solid platform for accuracy and dependablity and improve on it.

There was a reason the largest Sheriff's Department in the world issued the 67. But, I think you found that out already.

If you want the 6 inch version, look for the Model 68. Only built for the CHP.

I have both nickle and blue 15's and a 67 is on my list of K frame guns to have.

Default Model 67

Nothing like a bag full of .38's and a Model 67 for a fun easy to shoot day at the range. I have had a couple of 67's come and go from my collection, but I currently have the 67-5 PC. It kind of tortures the design of the classic 67 (it has the 3 inch barrel with a power port and a tritium fromt sight) but it is really accurate and has a great trigger. It literally shoots with the recoil of a .22.
BTW, my local shop got in a NIB model 68 in from an estate collection about 2 weeks ago. It was laid out on the floor behind the counter and i immediately recognized it as a rare sight. I handled it and it was marked CHP. It balanced great and had a great trigger. I didn't buy it only because i thought it better left to a collector. I am more of a shooter.
Enjoy your 67.

IMO you'll find that anyone who's shot either a model 15 or 67 is a fan. To put it simply, the 4 inch tapered barrel K frame is noteable because it's the finest balance of features you can find in a revolver. Be it the balance of power and recoil, balance in the hand, or the balance between sight radius and practical accuracy, the tapered barrel 4 inch K frames are the pinnacle in terms of balance. As a result, if you need a handgun that allows you to get it into action quickly and allows you to shoot it effectively, the 15 and 67 will be the easiest to master and get up to speed fastest with.

I recently acquired a 67 no dash with stainless rear sights and it was love at first sight. The 67 and my 65 3" will stay with me forever. Everything I need and nothing I don't.

+1.....If I didn't have a pre-15 that I dearly love I'd be all over one of those. Come to think of it. One of those would look good in my collection.

I found this in my LGS, it was sitting in the showcase with the original box........I really didn't know much about the '67s until I got this one.

That is a beauty you have there, everything you need and nothing you don't. It's a keeper for sure.
I was too young to realize that when I sold the two I had bought new.

Default Just took mine to range yesterday 1st time

I bought a 67 no dash from a forum member a couple of weeks ago and had a chance to fire it yesterday. I was really impressed with how it shot. My wife who shoots with me dosen't like revolvers... they are to hard for her to pull in double action. When I unloaded the 1st six round at 8 yards and they all were in a 3" group she wanted to try again. This was the 1st revolver she shot that she actually liked the trigger pull in DA.
Bottom line I really like this gun...

I am a definite fan of the Combat Masterpiece .38s. The very first handgun I ever shot, back in the mid 60s, was a pre-model 15 K-38 that my Dad got from his Uncle. I inherited that gun when my Dad passed away in '04. Last year I found a beautiful 67-1 that I added to my collection. These are two of the best shooting S&W revolvers that I own!!

Here's my 4" 67-1...

Recently had one show up at the LGS out of an estate settlement.
Never seen such a filthy gun. Issues included nasty Goodyears, some endshake and a woman's name electro-pencilled under the top strap.
Took a gamble on it for $150 OTD figuring if it could be saved it would be a neat companion to my Model 15.
Stripped it down to the carcass and soaked 3 days in Ed's Red. Still had to scrape and scrub away the layers of carbon and lead plating. Thankfully, the name polished away with a bit of work and I started in on the exterior. Actually shined up pretty well. Timing and yoke alignment tested OK, but it did "push-off". A new hammer from a forum member quickly fixed that issue:



And now they're dating!

Guys,
Thanks for the informative insights and the pics of other members 67's. Good to hear the 67 has a following. Never thought I'd own a stainless steel gun but sure glad I now have one.

I acquired a 67 no dash from my brother in law. He took the gun in trade but had no use for a .38 revolver. $150.00 later it was mine. Has stainless rear sight and the blade is a little bent. Some scuffs in the finish, it had seen some use. Surprisingly, it practically shoots into one hole. It is not my prettiest gun, but it can shoot better than I can hold it. I also have a 4" blue 15-2, I really like these guns.

I've been a mod 15 fan for a long time. Just saw a mod 67 no dash today in good shape. Put it on hold until I could check it out. Anyone know when these were made. Has stainless sights and no insert in front sight. Any problems with this model?

I just saw the previous post regarding the M67. It pretty well answers my question regarding date of manufacture.

Only problem with a nice 67 will be paying for/loading all the ammo you're likely to put through it!

Default A bit of Model 67 history

My 67 no dash was manufactured in 1972. See thread #12. 1972 was the 1st year the stainless version of the "Model 15" was manufactured and was so designated the "Model 67". The "Model 15" dates back to 1957. The pre model 15, the same gun without the model designation called the "K-38 Combat Masterpiece" was 1st produced in 1947. Interestingly the Blued or Nickel finish Model 15 stopped production in 1999 but the stainless Model 67 lives on and is available brand new today at a store near you

I guess being sort of an old school guy I think the Model 67 and Model 15 are two of the all time great S&W revolvers.

+1....I just wrote basically the same thing in the other "67-1" thread! My pre-Model 15 K-38 Combat Masterpiece (circa 1952) is the cornerstone of my collection. It was my great-uncle's police service revolver that he handed down to my father in the mid 60s. It was the first handgun I ever shot, and it is still the most accurate revolver in my collection. I added my 67-1 about 6 months ago and it is just as amazing!!

I bought a set of CHP (not obliterated OHB) Models 67 and 68. Smoothest and mostfuntoshoot revolvers I own. My daughter and I shot paper plates and party baloons at 40 yards....hitting most of the times. Paid 800 for the pair, they were owned by the Armorer. Maybe he gave them special care

I bought this LE trade in for $200 7-8 years ago. My wife traded the brand new 642-1 I bought for her for this. Lucky they live in the same safe. Joe

Wink 67-1 to the range

I just got back from my first trip to the range with my 67-1. What a sweet pistol. Looks great, felt great and shot great. RAN PERFECTLY. Truly an extraordinary piece of mechanical art. It is obvious that the previous owners took very good care of it - reportedly a LEO's private weapon.

I just can not figure out why I was shooting it better double action than single action. Must continue to investigate.

I have had a 67-1 since 1981. Many guns have come and gone from my stash since then. The 67 is still here. Hard to go wrong when you think you have found near perfection in a revolver.

Took off the wood furniture to prevent any damage and replaced with Houge....feels pretty darn nice.

Hard to believe she was made in 1971 and still looks this good. She's aged nicely.

There was a reason the largest Sheriff's Department in the world issued the 67. But, I think you found that out already.

If you want the 6 inch version, look for the Model 68. Only built for the CHP.

I have both nickle and blue 15's and a 67 is on my list of K frame guns to have.
I am almost certain that Model 68s were also made for LAPD.

The 67 is a modern classic and the no dash with stainless steel sights are the most desired by collectors. My favorite one though is the 67-3 with the round butt and heavier barrel. The dash 3s are the last ones before the MIM parts I believe. Great revolvers all.

Wow, Thanks for all the great responses to this thread. You guys take some good looking pictures also. One thing I have noticed is that the 67 looks great wearing a variety of stocks...Hogues, Magnas, Targets, Pearl. bigun: Your Targets are outstanding on that gun.

The M67 is probably the one S&W I still "need" and these pictures don't help a bit. I should have been buying 15s and 67s in the day instead of .44 Magnums--which are now either collecting dust or gone.

GREAT little guns.

You said it Bat! I've been to preoccupied with hi-cap 9mm, and Magnums myself! It's high time I find a 67 to call my own as well. Dale

Just noticed this thread. I have a no-dash 67 that I bought new in the summer of '72. I wrote an account and posted a couple pics in the more recent thread about what 67s originally cost in '72, so I won't repeat it here......but will post another pic that I didn't in that thread! My gun has quite a history and I agree with the posters here who love theirs. I originally bought it to carry backpacking, and did that every summer of the decade between '72 and '82. It has become one of my more fabled guns.

I was well pleased with mine,great revolver.
I bought one in 1990 that was one of a batch turned in by Georgia Power. All but a few were stamped as such, but I took one that was not. It was in the original box with the correct serial number [6K69,,,].

Just checked and the Model 67 wasnt introduced until 1972 although Im guessing more shipped in 1973.

BTW...
I cannot believe S&W didnt make a .22lr version of the Model 67 as a regular cataloged item...
Im guessing its because the Model 18 existed and was available in Nickel and they were busy making SS guns for law enforcement,
But a SS Model 18 is one of my dream guns,
Might just have to Hard chrome a Model 18 as the next best thing instead.

Anyone out there have one hard chromed already?

Default 67 gunleather

Just picked up this Safariland belt with .38 loops (12) and a Bianchi holster for the 67 at the local used parts bin. The suede lined belt is perfect for trail carry.
