My first was a 4" satin chrome M-14. I carried it for a week and shot it and went back for a 4" satin chrome M-15-2. This before any of the Vs or VHs were on scene in the early 1970s. If memory serves I paid around $125 new for the 14 and around $150 new for the 15. They are the sweetest shooting revolvers I have with the arguable exception of my set of Colts, (An old Trooper .357 and an old Python, both 4 ".) The DWs have the shortest lock time I have seen personally. By the time I had broken in the M15-2 I had to use it on the job and it performed to spec for me.
