Barrel Length: 4”

Sights / Optics: This revolver is mounted with a serrated ramp front sight fixed to a solid serrated rib. There is a square notch micrometer click adjustable rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The two piece grips are checkered walnut magna style with silver colored S&W logo medallions. There are perhaps half a dozen diamonds that have been damaged between the two grip panels. There are minor compression and handling marks on the smooth portions of the grips. The left panel has a place on the forward “magna” shoulder and another on the bottom of the panel where the varnish has been scratched or worn through. Otherwise the grips show few signs of use. There are no chips or cracks. The grips rate in about Fine to Excellent overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion and the muzzle crown is good.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 95% of its metal finish. There are drag marks on the cylinder. The only other notable marks are on the front of the front sight above the muzzle where perhaps a rod slipped during cleaning. The screw heads are sharp and clean with only the cylinder release screw showing any signs of being turned. The markings are clear. Overall, this revolver rates in about Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly both single action and double action. There is a case colored checkered .500” wide target hammer and a case colored .500” wide serrated target trigger. This is a K frame square butt revolver with a pinned barrel. We have not fired this revolver.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: A blue Bangor Punta box with metal reinforced corners and matching end label is provided. The exterior of the box is in Excellent condition with only three places where the finished portion has lifted right below the metal reinforcing. There are two places on the lower portion of the box where the blue finished paper has lifted, just above the metal reinforcing. Overall, the box is in surprisingly good condition. Also provided is the four page instruction manual and warranty-service center sheet. The paperwork is also in great shape.

Our Assessment: The Smith & Wesson Model 15 is also called the K-38 Combat Masterpiece. It is hard to imagine a more classic looking .38 Special double action revolver with its square butt, adjustable sights and blued finish. Often issued by law enforcement agencies in the mid-20th century, this revolver embodies the reliability for which Smith & Wesson is famous. If you are seeking a target revolver, service revolver or home defense revolver this handgun is up to the task. For these very same reasons it is also a good choice for IDPA stock service revolver or ICORE Classic revolver competitions.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This revolver is not on the California “roster of certified for sale handguns”, and can only be sold to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
