Smith & Wesson Model 60-15 No. 162430

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The 3-inch-barrel 60-15 was one of the most accurate snubbies we have tested. The barrel is long enough to aid velocity, but short enough to conceal and steer quickly from target to target. The double-action trigger was exceptional.

Even with the underlug extending to the muzzle, the barrel of the model 60-15, right, appeared thin when compared to larger models such as the Smith & Wesson 686 on the left.
We preferred the black, fully lined surface of the front sight on the model 60-15 for a glare-free view of the front sight.
Several of the parts found on our Smith & Wesson J-frame revolver were miniaturized. The hammer and rear sight were spindly compared to larger models, but in proportion to the frame. This gave the little revolvers the appearance of being full-sized weapons, when in fact they were lighter and smaller.
