    A Nice Model 10-6...

    ...came my way.

    This one is a plain ol' 4" HB Model 10-6 that had its hammer spur removed somewhere along the line and was reblued in a matte finish.


    The gun came with some Uncle Mike's rubber grips, but I put on a set of S&W service grips I've had for years and a grip adaptor. There is small print visible on the frame showing that this gun was originally sold by Davidsons.

    Screw heads were clean and the bob-job on the hammer was nicely done. The gun's timing is just fine with the cylinder locking up with absolutely no play in 4 of the 6 chambers. Frame-to-yoke fit is very nice and tight and the DA pull is slick.

    This one will be a shooter and assuming that it groups well and functions properly, might wind up a carry revolver.

    Best.

    Gotta love a classic Smith! My young bride's favorite handgun is a model 10-5. Calls it her "hogleg".

    C'mon that thing is horrible looking. Are you serious?? I tell ya what, I'll give ya $50 for it and do you a favor. I'll save you the embarassment of having to show people that thing.

    Just kidding ofcourse, I love old wheelguns. I always keep my eyes open for a decent model 10.

    Beautiful firearm, lots of luck. I'm sure that it WILL group well.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    What a beauty.

    I have gone back to wheelguns and I'm starting to shoot/carry them instead of my Glock. Glocks are tools, wheelguns are pieces of art.

    Hello. To me the sad part is that I can remember when many revolvers that are very desireable today were easy to find NIB.

    That takes me back a fiew years , My first off duty was almost a twin of it back when... lol . It was lighter/smaller than my issued n frame and still a fine shooter . Of course it got traded along the line since LE and raising 2 kids on at the time a single income did not leave room to actualy buy guns .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Hello and thanks very much. OD: Despite it's being "only" a 38, I've seen very nice "work" done with such revolvers before retiring from police work. I suspect that at least part of that is because they're so easy to shoot well.

    Indeed sir. I have a good friend who carried a similar M&P when he was a Copper.
