I don't think the model 12 is as bad as some think. S&W has been selling aluminum J frames for quite some time and the only problems are with the earliest ones. On the aluminum K frame model 12 the issues were with the aluminum cylinder on the original Model 12 (no dash). Many of those cylinders were replaced under recall and Model 12-1 and newer were manufactured with steel cylinders.

Still, a model 10 would give you many years of unworried service.
