I have the opportunity to get a S&W model 13 at a pretty good price. I'm more of a long gun freak, I know little about wheelguns. Opinions and experience appreciated.
Once issued by both the New York State Police and the FBI, the Smith & Wesson Model 13 is K-Frame .357 Magnum. Like its little brother (the Model 10) the 13 is a blued steel model and features a bull barrel and fixed sights. It is functionally identical to the stainless steel Model 65. I recently got to spend a little time with this revolver and I’m glad that I did. I thought you all might enjoy a look at this retro revolver here!
I was told that S&W Model 13 wasn’t very popular. Why is that? I got this one and I don’t see anything wrong with it.
