    K frames

    There don't seem to be a lot of revolver threads here; so, I'll start one.

    I am a big fan of S&W K frames. I have a wide array of autoloaders, but nothing feels better in my hand than a S&W K frame.

    Warning S & W revolvers are addicitive!!!

    Most of the time when we buy something on the spur of the moment it comes back to haunt us. I got lucky and bought a S & W 686PP 357 with a 6" barrel about three years ago, when I knew even less than I do now about guns. Paid a little over $500.00 (NIB) for it and bought it because I just liked the way it looked. It was heavy and looked bad ass. Had no idea where I could shoot it since we live in a suburb of Dallas. Got lucky again and found a great gun range within a 10 minute drive of my house. Wife & I took it to the range and fell in love with it. Great shooting gun. We now own about 13 guns and looking to buy more.

    SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!!!

    Hello. I have always enjoyed K-frames and continue to shoot them currently.


    This was my father's Model 19 that I bought for him in the '70's. With his passing, it came back to me.


    My wife's Model 65 Lady Smith...


    A fun shootin' Model 10


    A Model 64 that is a pleasure to carry


    and a 2 1/2" Model 19

    Best to all.

    Although I have more N frames, I like the K frames. I have a Model 14 K-38 and a Model 17 K-22. My club has a one handed, double action revolver league every year. We're around 1/2 way through the season. We shoot on reduced 50' silhouette targets. Shooting DA one handed is tough if you're not used to it. It's a lot of fun though when you start to improve.

    I bet you thought I was all talk and that I didn't own a K-Frame? This is my nickel M19 and M15, both wear Herrett Jordan Trooper grips. Regards, Richard :-D

    Thanks BEER, from what I've heard it was from a limited run of only 500 3" 66-4's made for RSR Distributors in 1996, it came as seen with rose wood grips, satin stainless finish & factory mag-na-porting, I was very lucky to find it.

    I love any frame from S&W and I think their actions are the best.

    Thumbs up K-Frames

    I only got one K-Frame the 19-4 model with a 4" barrel. I also have a .44cal N-Frame 21-4 model with a 4" barrel. One old and one new but they are both are great shooters.
    19-4 in the rear and 21-4 up front

    Talking K Frame

    I have examples of S&W I, J, K, L,& N frames but I think I like shooting the K frame the best.

    I think the K frames were some of the best S&Ws ever made even though the J frames have a spot in my heart.

    I have smaller hands and the K's fit me very nicely. Most of my S&Ws are older with my favorites being a 4" Heavy barrel 10-8, a 2 1/2" 66 and a pinned and recessed 19 6" that has a buttery smooth double action on it.

    I have a 29-4 but I am actually a big .41 Magnum fan and still hope to end up with a 4" 57 or 58 one day.

    I ran across this 65-5 in a general store that sells some guns on the side. It was in the case for quite a while. The owner told me that no one wanted it because it had been made DAO by the S&W Performance Center. I picked it up for a song. It is my only Smith & Wesson firearm but one if my favorites. The DAO trigger pull surpasses anything I have pulled in the last 30 years of shooting and is incredibly accurate to boot.



    I carry it IWB in an HBE Com 3.
