    The classic medium frame (K-frame) S&W police revolver. This one is chambered in .357 Magnum and has a four inch bull barrel. The fixed sight, K-frame is THE service revolver; the issue revolver for legions of police officers in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. It still serves in this role, although most police departments seem to be going to high capacity automatics of the types which are currently being banned for civilian use. This is a nice sized, very handy gun, and is a joy to shoot with .38's, though firing a .357 through this piece can be a bit unpleasant. I shoot two to three inch groups with this gun in single action mode; this opens up to a bit over three inches in double action. The sights are fixed and the single action trigger is nice and crisp. The double action pull is typical, long and fairly heavy. This gun is very typical, and for years the K-frame was the frame upon which many standard police and civilian guns were based. These guns include the classic k-38 masterpiece, target pistol, and different styles and finishes of .38 service revolvers. These guns were also made in stainless steel, and the .357 stainless model equipped with adjustable sights, and a full length ejector shroud is the famed Model 66 Combat magnum. This is a dependable duty gun which can be easily learned, and comfortably carried.
