I'm no longer looking for another revolver - got more than I need now!

There's a S&W 14-7 on GunBroker that looks good, those are rare...

Roy it's hard to go wrong with a nice model 14.  I really like my 14-0, which I will be using for DR points.  I will tell you that the factory grips aren't very good for our needs.  Factor that into your process.

I've had a couple of K14's, one with an 8" barrel which I sold when I got into BE and realised that it was no good for DR. Currently a K14-4 which I bought specifically for DR, but now find that a previous owner has modified the front sight and it is no longer compliant. Grrr....

I like the look of that K14-7 on GB, but pricey!!!

Another Forum member has offered me a K14-0 which I hope to acquire shortly.

I've tried most of the after-market grips. Got those soft rubber Pachmyr's on all of my SnW's at present, but I'm still not satisfied.

Thanks for all of the responses.

How was the sight modified?
It's normally a pinned insert and replaceable.
hard to see, use a 10x and you'll see the pin outline,

Well, Jim.

Another SNAFU story.

Turns out that it has not been modified! But it does need replacement front and rear sight blades, in process.

I've now got two K14 DR guns!

Ho hum!

Looks like someone bought that 14-7.

It looked so nice, it appears to have the combat trigger which I think is best suited for me. I'm a sucker for pretty guns, life's too short - etc., etc.

I will get all three properly sorted and decide which ones to keep and which must go back on to GB.
