Added a couple of K frames to my revolver collection

My post was deleted somehow so here we go again

I bought 2 revolvers last night. A 19-3 Texas Ranger Commemorative and a 17-4 6" revolver. Both are in very good shape, I would say 95%+ the 19-3 did not come with the presentation case or the bowie knife but that's ok with me. I did not buy it for a collectible piece I bought it to shoot, although I do think the Texas Ranger markings are cool and certainly doesn't subtract value. The 17-4 should give me and my grandsons hours of shooting fun, once they get a little older

SweeT!

Learn to shoot double action and steering that front sight and your semi-auto accuracy will improve!

Love the S&W K frames. I have often said if I could have only one firearm it would be one of my M-14 6" revolvers.

Sweet additions! I managed to pick up a new to me 686 No dash for a steal! Needed very minor attention but a great range gun for the kids!

Yesterday, I got to shoot my LNIB Model 15-2 for the first time. What a sweet shooter, and pretty accurate to boot. I love K frame Smith & Wessons.

How do you like the cut-away triggerguard? Does it really make it easier to access the trigger or is it mostly cosmetic in your opinion?

I've never handled one but I was thinking of grinding/filing on one of my beaters if it's a worthwhile modification. I don't have large fingers.

I think the cut away trigger guard is nostalgic feature. I don't think it really makes it easier or faster to get to the trigger. It is very subtle and I didn't even notice it when I was looking at the gun before the purchase.

Very nice. I’m with you on the box opinion. I like to shoot, not pay homage to a box in a safe a few times / year.

After buying my first grandson a s&w k22/6” blue I realized how smooth the s&w actions are. I went after a s&w k38 pre 14 and k38 pre 15, combat masterpiece and target masterpiece. I got the top three k’s.

K frames are just about right in all respects.

My current carry is a S&W model 67 in an El Paso Saddlery sky six holster.
