    Wink 10-7 Snub Nose

    Picked this up today.I couldn't believe it had sat on the shelf at the gun shop for over a week.It appears to have lived a lonely boring life,maybe in a nightstand drawer.I negotiated a good price and got a nice used leather holster to boot.

    Very nice.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    You seem to have a knack for finding these deals, pistola.

    Very nice, indeed!

    The 10-7 was made in 1977, BTW. This one looks like it's in excellent condition.

    The Model 10 2-inch revolvers are sleepers for those interested in a revolver for self defense. They are easy to shoot accurately and soak up recoil. They're easier to conceal than one might think.

    If it's a Model 10-7 wouldn't it be manufactured after 1981, Captain?

    I have a 64 2 inch that I love. It doesn't see much action these days (a new fangled 642 took its place) but it is still a joy to shoot.

    Shot-placement is king. Adequate penetration is queen. Everything else is angels dancing on the heads of pins.

    Give it a name and then take it to the range to play...that life in the nightstand drawer can instill depression in a snubby....

    Snub nose

    I have had this S&W 38 spl five shot revolver for several years and don't know what model it is. It obviously is similar to a Lady Smith, but may be older and doesn't say Lady Smith on the frame.
    In an old Gun Digest the closest I can come is a Model 32 Terrior, but don't know the year.
    It makes a nice concealed carry revolver.
    Thanks.

    The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson says the 10-7 was made in 1977 (dash 7 was an engineering change, moving the gas ring from the yoke to the cylinder).

    It appears to be a standard Model 36 Chief's Special.

    Open the cylinder, look for the model number on the frame in the yoke cutout. Any numbers you might see here are assembly numbers, not the serial number. Look on the bottom of the grip frame for the serial number. (You must remove the stocks to do this). The SN may or may not have a "J" prefix.

    Snub nose

    Terry.....aka Captain Crunch
    I could not find any numbers in the area of the frame at the cylinder. Took the grip off and the serial number on the bottom of the grip is 7300XX. Also there is a smaller stamping on the lower side of the grip 31999 and another large Y also in the lower area on the side.
    Appreciate any further info.
    Thanks, ezman38

    Would have been my advice as well. I have owned a Mod 60 2" since 1985. I find in the warmer months it is much more comfortable in concealed carry than the usual 1911.
    BTW I found that adding a set of Crimson Trace Laser Grips recently has made quite a difference.

    SN 7300XX dates to 1967-1968. Should be stamped "Mod. 36" on the frame in the yoke cut.

    31999 is an assembly number.
