I recently acquired this beautiful 15-2 in a very dark blued Palmer factory finish, with a 3" fixed barrel and heavy shroud.  S/N puts the manufacture date at 1992.

Can anyone else add to this information ?

Nice fixed barrel.  I had one just like it in stainless.  The blued guns in fixed barrel configuration seem a bit less common than the stainless FB's.  Nice score!

How's it shoot?  Great if I had to guess wink

Man, it is so sweet, you'd think it was a 6" not a 3" ... like I said in my Intro; "after shooting it, I hounded him until he relented and sold it to me" !

That is sweetworship, I would guess that that would be my main carry gun if I had it.  And with those rounds!

What do you want in trade? pokepoke

Congrats on landing that one, it looks great! The bluing finish on these guns is really, really nice. The Palmer plant really did an awesome job!

I have a pair myself. 🙂

Did they make these in a service model?

 

To me that would be even sweeter.

Yes they did. Although they seem to fewer made, so finding one is tough. A member here recently scored one, but now I have forgotten who.embarassed
