S&w m15-3 lnib

I got a call from the LGS last week, said he just got a LNIB 15-3.
He said it has box, tools, papers and original 1973 sales receipt of $117.99.

He said there’s also a Model 28 5 screw no box/papers/tools there at $750.
I already have two 3 screw specimens, one LNIB, and so since table saw purchase, passed on first choice on the M28 (the force was with me).

I told him I’d be there at lunch. I said he could have called last week… before I purchased a new $2000.00 cabinet table saw.
I was conflicted but opportunities like this don’t come by often.

Off to the LGS at lunch, sure enough basically just fired once or twice and put in box.
One form 4473 and I was out the door with my new M15.

Serial number puts DOB at 1971.

I can't believe what 28s are going for. About 10 years ago I bought a nice Highway Patrolman that shipped in 1954 for $190. Hard to believe these were made to be discount guns for cops. I have seen them priced above M27s on the same table. Insane.

Very nice. I would also love to have a model 15 to go along with my 14.

Wow, that is one of the guns I would love to have. I remember watching Adam-12 reruns as a kid and the Model 15 was one of their side arms.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

Other than a second J frame, a clean 4" model 15 is one of the few 38 special revolvers I would really like to have.

I'm with S.P. on pricing on the model 28's, great revolvers but the prices have just gotten insane in the last year or so.
