    I ignored it; hoping that another PFír won it. I kept telling myself my model 66 was good enough.

Reputation plus scarcity makes them pretty desirable.
    I have a '70s 4" Mod 15. Not quite a Dayton but close. It's one of the nicest shooting revolvers in my safe. Great smooth action, balance, etc. It's not as pretty as these posted here but it's just a pleasure to blast with.

    Combat Masterpieces are a joy! We have a 4", pre-15, 5 screw, that's everything you describe. Probably officially passing it to my stepson once he hits legal age. Out of everything he's ever shot, he's adopted that one as his special shooter. Guess I got to start looking for a replacement at some point :-)

    I've been overtopped.

    Ah, eff it. I'm putting in a higher bid.

    ETA: That didn't go well. I'm out.
