    Got my Model 10 from Bud's!

    Picked up my Model 10 today. I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of this weapon. I had seen some recent reviews which said the guns weren't as nice as the previous batch, and had only about 50-60% bluing. Mine is easily at 80% and looks great. There is some holster wear at the muzzle as expected, and the grips show a lot of wear. My only regret is that I didn't also grab one of the 3-inch Model 10s before they sold out.

    The mechanicals of this gun are great, and it moves like a Swiss watch. The bore and crown are awesome, too. I already have a set of factory replacement grips on the way, and will send off an order for a Tyler T-grip tomorrow (I like the classic/retro look). Can't wait to take this thing to the range tomorrow!

    Great looking gun, those round butt models are hard to find.

    Outstanding!!

    Watch out on ordering the Tylers. I've heard some horror stories about them taking your money and delays in shipping, or not shipping at all.

    I read all about it on a revolver forum. According to the posters there, Tyler's has since changed hands and has shipped all of their back orders. They are supposedly shipping at about 6-10 days from order now. I went to the Tyler's site and it said the same thing, so I'm hopeful (fingers crossed).

    They cashed my check a month ago and I haven't seen my order yet.

    Say, that does look quite nice. A set of clean factory grips will finish the clean appearance. Then you can start beating it up in use.

    I always liked the feel of the round butt K-Frame Smith & Wesson with factory grips. They even work for Model 19 2 1/2-inch with full-power 357 Mangnum loads.

    Would be interested in your shooting impression after your range trip.

    Yikes. I think I'll just do without the Tyler T-grips (at least for now).

    Thanks for the info.

    Just noticed. That's one of those ambidextrous Model 10s with thumb pieces on both sides, heh! Looks like the cylinder swings both ways.

    I'm not writing them off yet. We shall see. They certainly wasted no time processing my check. Hey that revolver looks great. You got a winner.

    I think that maybe that is a factory stock.

    Yeah, it appears factory, just a bit chewed from use which is ok since it was a working gun.
