Hello,

Im coming into a smith and wesson model 15 with a 6 inch barrel.  Id like to use it to try to go distinguished with a revolver.  

My question is what weights the trigger must be for single action and double action.  To be legal to compete with?

Thanks
Jeff

NO SET WEIGHT FOR DOUBLE ACTION. 2.5 LBS FOR SINGLE ACTION. TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE S&W NEVER MADE A FACTORY 6 INCH MODEL 15.  JP

6” and 8-3/8” barrels were offered in 1986. Would’ve been a Model 15-5. 

JIMPGOV is right about the 2.5 pound single action trigger pull.

As answered in another part of the forum:

"Trigger- Must have single and double action capability and must be capable of lifting 2 1/2 lbs when the revolver is cocked for single action firing. Triggers will be weighed. Any trigger, sold by the manufacturer of the revolver, without modification, may be used."

-NRA Precision Pistol rule book

Also, S&W makes a factory 6" model 15, I own one.

What is the difference between a 14 6" and a 15 6 inch" . I would only guess the rear and front sights.

Not a whole lot. Both have large target grips, just a different style. I prefer the lighter hammer, heavier trigger combination of the Model 14 to the lighter trigger, heavier hammer of the Model 15 by just a bit. But they’re both great.
