    The K-38 Masterpiece, later called the Model 14, was a target pistol originally made with a 6" barrel.<br>
    <br>
    In 1949, law enforcement agencies asked for a 4" version.<br>
    <br>
    The K-38 Combat Masterpiece, later called the Model 15, was the result.<br>
    <br>
    Similarly, the K-22 Masterpiece later became the Model 17. These had a 6" barrel. The K-22 Combat Masterpiece was the 4" version, and it later became the Model 18.<br>
    <br>
    There was also a K-32 Combat Masterpiece. It was discontinued before it ever got a model number.<br>
    <br>
    Later, the Model 15 Combat Masterpiece was made in a 2" heavy barrel version for the Air Force. These were later renumbered as the Model 56.<br>
    <br>
    The stainless version of the Model 15 is the Model 67.<br>
    <br>
    Note that in later years, S&W put heavy barrels on the Models 14 and 17, but the Combat Masterpiece, Models 15 and 18, retained the original slim profile barrel.<br>
    <br>
    The Model 19 is the .357 Combat Magnum.<br>
    <br>
    I have a Model 18. It was the first Christmas present my wife gave me. It made, and still makes, a great companion piece for my Model 19. I've put a lot of rounds through my Model 18. I've lot track of how many cases. I'd never contemplate selling it.<br>
