    S&W Model 14-3

    Hello. I recently picked up a NIB Model 14-3. Have not shot it yet, but I shot these guns LOTS in the early '70's. Price was right and I'm hoping to "kill" some "X's" with it in the near future.


    On the end of the box, it shows that this gun was ordered with target stocks and that's what was on it. I changed them out for a set of old Fitz "Gunfighter" grips. The revolver's backstrap extends past the rear of the grips a tiny bit, but I'll have to just overlook that as these long-discontinued grips are very comfortable for me.

    I'm pretty sure that the 6" target 38 revolver is not a hot item these days, but I find them loads of fun and a good tool with which to practice basic marksmanship and fundamentals...plus they take me back to a different time when shooting them.

    Best.

    That sure looks like a good one for sure. Hard to beat them old Smiths in my book. I don't know why but a lot of collectors over look the model when it has a 6" barrel. I guess because they don't shoot them? Good luck with yours as I know you will shoot it and enjoy it.

    That kinda looks like the one I got at an auction in a neighboring town about six weeks ago. I honestly believe it is unfired...also got a like condition 17-3 at the same place.

    I love those things too. I've had several and I have one now. Mine is from 1968. I always shoot them with Pachmayr Pro's; exposed backstrap. The one you just got is a fantastic find. I hope you enjoy it!
