Classicfirearms.com has a sale on old Model 10's from various police departments and agencies. $299 and are very nice with 90% blue. 3 screw and square butt. I received mine earlier this week and was very impressed. There is at least one YouTube test from a pistol received from Classic Firearms.

Pappy,
Police trade ins are usually great deals.

The S&W Model 10 had been the company's bread and butter gun for many years.

It has been the basic frame/foundation for many models.

Let us know how it does on the range and with what ammo.

Wayne

My Model 10-8 has a tight cylinder, deep riflings and about a 2 lb trigger. Double action is smooth as well. I'll send a picture in a few minutes.

Pappy,
That looks like it has a lot of history and good "character".
I bet that it is a tack driver.

No sense it putting hot loads through the old girl. She will be just fine with a steady diet of regular ammo.

Gosh! I remember when they went for about $80. brand new. Colt Pythons were $125. and Highway Patrolmen were about $85.

I bought my Model 27 for just about $100 (used) in 1963 for about $100.

And, in boot camp, 1965, monthly pay was $35/month. Does the Model 27 sell for 3 months pay now?

And the "gas wars" were between "service stations" across the road from each other; at .18 & .20cents per gallon for regular. Too bad EVERYTHING wasn't great about the good old days......ya' know?
