The amazing find

610-2, no lock, 4-inch barrel, no dings, tight lock-up. Bought yesterday for $400 plus tax. What? It's true.

Just lucky and happened to be there

Leaving the range, always take a look in the cases for a surprise, the 610 had been there less than 24 hours on consignment. This is actually my 2nd great find that I stumbled upon while leaving the range - blame it on the fact that I go shoot a lot, and I strike like a cobra when I see something worth buying.

Very nice!!

That is one of the guns on my list of "gonna get before I die".

It's sandwiched right between the Model 57 no dash and Ruger Maximum.

Deals like that don't last long. Good call on always checking behind the glass, you never know what you'll come across. I always swing by the counter to take a look.

Cool gun Filthy!

Excellent find, and yes Id go into hock to grab that gun at that price!

Say, you do know .40 S&Ws with moon clips work well to in it, right?

Ha! You LIED! The receipt says $400.95!

In any case, someone dropped the ball in a big way.

I'm not familiar with how a gun shop is typically run, but when someone brings in a gun for consignment with a price that's FAR under market value, why on Earth doesn't the shop simply give the guy his full price and then display the gun themselves, with a higher price?

Or is the shop also clueless (as was the owner) about where a revolver like that typically goes for in the market?

That one is a no-brainer. There's no way you don't buy that, especially if you're the type that reads & posts in the revolver section of TFL. No way, no how.

Don't you love it when a gunstore goes by the Blue Book of Gun Values instead of real life?

Thats a good gun shop. My favorite one is hardly local 1.5 hour drive but they do the same thing. Price it to move and will haggle. Makes more sense then having it sit on the shelf for eight years.

Hahaha, there's a pretty W-I-D-E valley between the $400.95 that was priced at... and a price that forces the revolver to sit on the shelf for eight years...

Not bad; .40S&W rounds...

That looks like a great deal for a used DA 4" revolver.
Can it also safely shoot the .40S&W? That would make it even better.
If you were shooting full house 10mm loads mostly Id look into having the stainless steel barrel Mag-Na-Ported. www.Magnaport.com

An amazing friend

A buddy just sold me a Model 10-6 HB for $200!
What revolver it is!
It is a former British Constabuary gun issued to LEO's in Britan and sold surplus here in the U.S. to him years back.
Being a novice, I tried to check for all looseness and clearenses smooth trigger release and S/A, D/A operationylinder operation and smooth opening.
The biggest fault is a extra serial number etched onthe sideplate in Britan. Asthetically poor but this gun is a shooter and maybe someday I can have a jewler fill it?
All in all this revolver was nearly free! A fine revolver from a finer friend!
