Item Description

From its reserve career with the Australian Federal Police comes this Smith & Wesson .38 Combat Masterpiece, numbered model 15, 3rd Engineering Change. Manufacturer was Bangor Punta held Smith & Wesson. From its 6K54000 range serial number, this 15-3 was manufactured in 1974, the year that the Parliamentary Security Force was established, and probably where this 15 served. This weapon is serialized on its butt and inside the frame, with armorer's numbers on the cylinder yoke and on the grip frame laterals. Recent import stamp reads C.A.I., Georgia, VT., on the left side of the frame. Type is traditional double and single action revolver. Construction is entirely steel metal, with walnut grips. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special and .38 Special +P Interchangeably. Barrel is one piece 4 inch tapered, pinned into the frame, with exposed ejector rod. Sights are stepped serrated blade front on a solid serrated rib, with windage and elevation adjustable black blade rear. Cylinder capacity is 6 rounds. Trigger is .265 service size serrated face with matching serrated spur service hammer. Frame is K Medium with Square Butt grip frame. Ignition is hammer nose with a transfer bar safety system. Cylinder measures 1.44 diameter by 1.56 length. Overall length is 9 1/2 inches by 5 1/4 height. Finish is polished surface blued steel, with color casehardened hammer and trigger, and with semi-gloss walnut grip panels that have nickel plated brass medallions and screw, and brass escutcheons. Weight empty is 32 ounces, centered at the trigger. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent 12 pound vicinity. Cylinder travels 2 to 5 degrees after the cylinder times in all 6 positions on double action. On single action, the hammer travels 15 to 20 degrees after the cylinder times, and single action trigger pull measures a crisp 4 pounds. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .006. From the minimal carbon on the cylinder face and top strap underside, we estimate this revolver was fired no more than 50 times. Surface detrations are minimal, only faint occasional edge wear and rotation marking. We rate it as Excellent Condition, 90 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. One sees model 15s priced at upwards of $800, and not this nice. We're offering the Combat Masterpiece in the photos, however, for only $ 569.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California or Massachusetts.
