Bought a Model 10 with a 4" heavy barrel in 1993. It was a Birmingham Police gun and had been carried but not shot very much.
I did an action job, reprofiled the trigger, cut the hammer down to a small nib to be able to pull in single action, but te gun is for double action. Then I round butted the frame and touched up the bluing. The gun carries easy, even as a 5". I shoot +p's with no worries, and have even fired +p+'s. It's the same frame as the model 14 which is the 357, so I don't worry about heavy .38sp loads. Smooth as butter and shoots to the sights.
I paid 85,00 from a Gun Store in Huntsville. They had 50-60 of them. Went through about 20 to find the solid lockup and timing I wanted. gun is solid.
I wish I had went thru them and bought 2-3 of them, now, LOL.

The model 14 was 38 special...the target masterpiece, or the famed K38;
the model 19 was the 357, the combat masterpiece.
Yeah, I was mistaken on the model 14, it is the 38. And the 15 is the adjustable sight version.
I have a Model 66, right now.
The Model 65 is the fixed site version of the 357 (model 66). Identical to the model 10, except 357 and stainless.

another, brother to the 65, is the model 13...a fixed site .357 of FBI fame. heavy barrelled and K frame, another winner.
My neighbor (in his 70's) went with me to our BIG gun shop locally. I bought an Anaconda, and he bought a Model 13! In excellent shape for about 200.00 back in 2002. And it shoots to it's sights. I put a spring kit in and lightly glassed the action, and it will hit the end of a beer can at 15 paces off hand. Even with me shooting it.
