Those model 10's are real work horses and very dependable. I carried one for several years of my LEO career. Later we switched to the model 64 which is the stainless version of the model 10. A few years before retirement was issued Sig 9mm semi's. I liked the revolvers better.

S&W M&P .38spec. mid 50's bought at an estate sale many yrs. ago for $75.
It was orig. blue. It shoots very well, esp. anything with a 158 gr. bullet and is pretty much dead on at 50 ft.

This is mine, love it. It was the first gun I bought and it set me on the road to gun addiction.

Congratulations. Fine looking revolver you've got there. I like a lot of the others like the tapered barrel guns better, but that's just a matter of looks, not performance. I tell people all the time, when I was younger I didn't like the tapered barrels. I thougt they look "quaint and old fashioned." Now that I'm "quaint and old fashioned" myself, I think they look a lot better.

At one time I owned a half dozen or so Hand Ejector 38, M&P, and Model 10's.
These days just the one, a M&P from 1955.

I couldn't enlarge enough to get just a real clear view of Stephanie B's photo on page 1, but the rib doesn't seem to run smooth to the receiver. I too think that it's been re-barreled. However, it does seem to have a pin- I wonder how the pin holes would have lined up during the swap?

I got my 10-8 (heavy 4" barrel, square butt) from Bud's... ex-Victoria (Australia) Police service weapon. It's got a fair amount of holster wear, but it's tight and shoots great. Worth every penny.

Don't have, regretfully, any Model 10s any more, but I just love the tapered barreled ones, particularly the 5-inch and 6-inch models.


Hmmm, maybe I should start hunting around.

I have two Model 10s. One pencil barrel and one heavy barrel.
I have a total of $75 tied up in both of them combined.

The pencil barrel is one of the Royal Hong Kong PD guns. It came with a set of those skinny Hogue rubber grips on it, which FWIW I think are the best feeling grips of all time. Not much to look at, but they feel fantastic. This gun came into a local gun shop and was a true piece of crap. No finish, rusted....... Another local guy was playing around with gunsmithing out of his garage and the dealer gave it to him and told him to take a shot at making it look better. When he got done, I can't tell it was ever re-finished. He did a great job on it. I ended up paying $75 for it.
For years, it was easily my most frequently fired gun. I have fired thousands of rounds out of it. I haven't shot it for years and am really missing out.

The heavy barreled one belongs to a buddy of mine. It is a police department trade-in but it is in real nice shape. Used, but very well cared for and no holster wear at all. One day about 20 years ago, we went shooting and he left it in my car. At least once a year since then, I reminded him that I still had his Model 10. Finally, I moved away and still have it.
I guess that kinda makes up for the Browning lever action .22 rifle that I left at a different buddies house and moved away and he still has it. Spread the wealth.

I got out both my Model 10s last week and gave them a good cleaning. The next time I go to the range, I am taking them both.

It's funny but I don't see a lot of snubbies in Model 10 in the photos above. My wife has a blued 10-5 snubby with checkered wooden grips. It doesn't fit my hand too well but it sure plays nice at the range for a revolver with such a short sight radius and basic sights. I've got a model 64 (also a snubby), which is basically the stainless version of the 10.

Only if she found out. The obvious lesson here is to accumulate enough firearms of various types that your wife/significant other doesn't notice them going in or out.

Great pocket guns too (if you have deep pockets like cargo pants or are wearing a jacket). I like that even though this is a small frame, easily concealable piece, that you still get six rounds and aren't limited to five.
