    Here are my two snubbies:

    S&W Model 10 Pre-lock


    Stock grips were too small, so I added the K-frame Boot Grips from Smith & Wesson's site


    Ruger SP-101 with Badger Grips I added

    I like the Smith model 10 looks great in original form. But I really love the SP101 with the Badger grips, Nice!

    Thanks!

    The changing of the grips on both guns was mainly for fit/functionality, but I do like the new look, too.

    The Model 10 stock grips were just too skinny and the cutout behind the trigger guard was too high, leaving my trigger finger way high and at an akward angle.

    The SP-101 stock grips felt kind of boxy to me. It also gets carried, and the stock rubber grip was always dragging on clothing.

    I currently have a S&W 66 (no dash) 2.5 that I carried as a LEO from 1976 to 1996. I now CCW a S&W 637-2 in an IWB holster. My first snubby was a S&W 36 blue back in 1971. It was a square butt and in 1973 a S&W 60 .38 spl. I sure wish I had still had those last two.

    Hi VaOkie;

    The 2 1/2-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame looks like the very best choice for concealed carry with a .357 Magnum in my view. I see that is your first post so welcome to the Forum.

    ccwguy;

    Your Model 10 snub looks like mine. Wonder if it was made in about the same time period. I really like the Model 10 snubbies. My revolver's serial number is BSW64XX and it was purchased in January of 1996. The 2-inch Model 10s hide about as well as smaller framed revolvers, shoot accurately, and soak up recoil so well.

    Though I have large hands I find that the configuration of the factory grip design works perfectly for me.

    Mine is a Model 10-9. The serial number on mine is BBU60XX. I know nothing of S&W serial numbers, and it came with no box or papers, so I don't know exactly when it was made.

    Apparently they aren't too far apart in age. I'm thinking mine was made around 1992 but am not certain about that. A 2-inch Model 10 was hard to come by new when I ordered mine at year-end in 1995. My dealer couldn't turn one up right away.

    Hi CMS;

    Yessir! That's a good 'un! I've long thought that the Model 15 2-inch is the most attractive, most elegant, most business-like snub of all times, even beating out the 2 1/2-inch Colt Python for looks.

    I don't have one but intend to sneak up on one some day.
