Well, someone (@magnumforce34 )asked for k frame goodness, here is a dose. and besides, it's #wheelgunwednesday.
i don't show off this model 14-3 too often, but it's a dandy. it came to me disgraced by rubber grips, cuz you really need those to tame the blinding recoil of a 6 inch .38... anyways, yeah they aren't period correct factory target grips for a late 60s gun, but hey at least they're wood.
an often overlooked aspect of the model 14 is the trigger stop integral to the frame. i don't know that it helps a bunch, but it don't hurt either. once i got a load tuned up for this ol' girl, it'll lay 'em right in there. i'd run this gun against any python out there. it didn't cost me more than my truck cost and remember, colt's wear out, smith and wessons wear in. this gun will still be popping along when every python that ever gets fired is as loose as granny's dentures after a hot cup of coffee and some corn on the cob. #38special#popgun#wheelgun#revolver#sixgun#rocks#bluedsteelandwood#2a#edc#ccw#ikeepthatmfthangonme#target#no9mm#smithandwesson#idahome#sixshooter#1968#peashooter#handpistol#classic
Apologies for the low quality photos, but my cousin recently sent me these of his 1st gen saa in 38 w.c.f. it originated in texas through his great grandfather, a lawman of some kind, and ended up in phoenix when he moved. pretty cool family heirloom! i’ll take better photos myself in the future and repost.
