I have kludged together what I think to be descriptive of the older .357 models based on the Blue Book of Gun Values, the writeup on old build revolvers on the new wesson web site, a Palmer catalog and examination of my collection.
I'm not sure, hoever, when or if the model 15 became model 15-2. I did not include the .38 special models 8 and 9. Any coomments, additions or corrections welcome
