    64-3, +p ?

    I've got a S&W 64-3 38 Special 4" bbl that I bought new in 1980. Would this gun take +P rounds? I'd assume not. But maybe someone with more knowledge than myself could fill me in. Thanks.

    For what it's worth, I have a S&W manual here that says +P ammunition should not be used in K-frame revolvers manufactured before 1958. I would think 1980 is recent enough to be capable of firing +P safely and reliably.

    Not the best answer to your question, but I do know that I have been told that any "dash" Model 15 is rated for +P ammunition. You may want to check here to be certain:

    It'll shoot all the +P you'll want to afford to feed it. A complete non-issue to shoot +P in a Smith & Wesson Model 64.
