    My new 1971 2" Model 10 snubbie!

    I have been looking for a 2" K-frame for a while. I finely found one on Summitgunbroker.com from Mark. A 1971 Model 10-5 with the best revolver trigger I have every found in DA and near perfect SA.

    The only problem my wife may make it her's but if that happens I could not be happier

    Ok here are the pics and of course I had to make a holster for my/her/our new carry gun

    Super sweet and classic!!!!! I have a weakness for old revolvers, especially snubs. I'm sure you will enjoy it! Be safe.

    I've got a 64-2 in stainless and was wondering if that piece on your grip is factory? If not what is it called? Maybe a stupid question but I honestly don't know...
    Sweet looking gun.

    That's a good looking classic snub! Also the best kept secret of concealed carry. The 2-inch Model 10 hides almost as well as a J-frame, soaks up recoil, and is very accurate. It holds 6 rounds too. I love the way the round butt version with factory walnut grips feels in the hand.

    My old favorite Model 10 was produced in June of 1971 according to the factory letter. Its serial number is D 362XXX. How close is that to your revolver's serial number?

    I picked up a S&W model 19-5 not too long ago and am very please with it. It is small enough to easily conceal, (still heavy though), and is an awesome pocket canon. This old wheel gun has a lot of life left to it!
