I’ve searched around and just can’t quite figure out the model of my Dad’s 357 Magnum.  I think it’s a 15-2 but not sure.  I want to know the model and year.

Correct, that is a model 15-2 with a Standard 4″ barrel shroud .. nice handgun. To estimate the year, get your serial number and look at the forum’s Serial Number Registry;

So I got me a cool 715 . Serial 00255X . Am I understanding right that this is a 1970 vintage? Has a really smooth and light trigger.  Didnt get any extras.

No, the model 715 was not produced until 1982 I believe. Interesting serial number though, I have never seen one like “S / 00255x” before and the Registry does not have anything similar as a guide either.

Hmmm so depending on production volume , it must be early 80’s ? 

 I had looked through the serial numbers and didnt see any 4 digit #’s . Probably gonna try to find a 4″ and a loooong barrel just to try out .

The DW factory still produces the model 715 and spare parts, including barrel assemblies are readily available (don’t go to the CZ website, call or email Shawn to find out what is in stock).

The new style stainless shrouds are slightly different aesthetically, but will fit and function on your frame just fine. You can also attach a blue shroud to your stainless frame (a pinto), because I don’t believe they produced the 10″, 12″ or 15″ BA’s in stainless.
