    image.jpg I was finally able to scratch a long time itch. S&W model 15-3 like new in box. Could pass as unfired but I don't know.

    :101010: SCORE!:101010: .Only way to know for sure if it has been fired...take it out and shoot it! And take lots of ammo because you can't shoot it just once...ask me how I know :):):).

    Absolutely! It didn't matter to me if it was unfired. I will treat it extra special, but it won't be just a safe queen.

    What vintage is it? I see the pinned barrel, so it's presumably pre-1984. I love older Smith revolvers. I just picked up a 1972 Model 36-1 last week -- it was made the year I was born.

    I don't know where to look up the serial number. I know a few members here have that info. 15-3 was made up until 1977.

    Are you a member of the smith and wesson forum? You can post a pic and some of the serial number and they will let you know what year it was delivered.

    I think Marty (@22lrfan) has a copy of the Supica SCSW book.

    Mine's a 15-2, well used and still tight and accurate.
