The model 14 is the same size as the 15. The primary difference is the 14 has a fixed rear sight, plain metal front sight blade (no color insert), and in Blued finish guns; a 'satin' blue finish instead of a bright blue one.

Well, for me, CT lasers are a must - so it would be a moot point.

Thanks for the post...........great comparison and that's why I like my old J frame.
Thanks for the comparison photos Doc. What it tells me is that my LCR, which I bought with the CT grips, is, for all intents and purposes, the same size as the J frame. It has a better trigger as well, so I'm more than happy with it. That being said, I can see myself buying a J frame at some time in my future, to give my LCR some company.
very nice comparison and this will be very helpful
Thanks for sharing. Nice wheelguns,...I suddenly want an SP101

I would go by the manual that came with the gun. I once had a Taurus 85UL but the manual went with the gun. The 85UL manual available on taurus' web site states on page 11;
para. 3) These Taurus Titanium revolvers are designed to withstand the regular use of +P jacketed ammunition. However, we do not recommend that you utilize +P lead bullet ammunition as the typically light crimp on the lead bullets could cause some of them to unseat from the case, moving forward in the chamber, and possibly blocking the cylinder’s rotation.
I didn't notice any note on the steel frame models.
My three snubs and a Glock 19 for size comparison
