Default Got a Nice 10-6 Shooter Today at a Good Price

I fell into this one. I took an extended lunch so that I could get to my indoor range and shoot one of my three recent purchases, a 10-8. Range store is almost empty and as I hand the man my pass I peruse the display cases. And there it is, sticking out like a holster worn sore thumb amidst the sea of dark gray and black autoloaders, another Model 10 HB!. Quickly determine it's a 10-6 and it's got it's diamond pc's. SN C778512 so I'm assuming somewhere between 1963 - 1965? I don't have my SCSW yet but I googled enough to read this date range in some old forum post. Price is good, good by my standards anyways, and I asked them to "hold" it for me while I shoot.

While shooting I texted my wife and basically had to sell my soul to get the green light from her. She wasn't happy. Got done shooting, came out and got them down a whopping $25 for a price of $325. Lot's of holster wear but as tight as it could ever be. And the grips look awesome. I've got another shooter!

My week old 10-8 is on the right. Oh by the way it shot phenomenal.

Verah nice. 10-6 is still on my want list. Here is my 10-8 and 13-2.

Targets Guy,

I don't know what got you on these fixed sight revolvers but I'm pretty happy to have what I have. Nice 13! A local pawn has a 13, maybe a no-dash, new in box but it was $700. I have no money now. We're marrying off our only child, our daughter, in October.

I'm a fan of the model 10 also. Very nice examples you guys have, the 13 ain't too shabby either. EricR, in your second pic, what is the snubby in the left hand corner?

Nice. I'm a sucker for a Model 10 especially heavy barrels, any Kframe fixed sight HB for that matter.

The k-frame .38s are the current bargains in the s&w world, you can find really nice guns in the $200-$400 range, where a .357 would be a couple hundred more. I had a local store practically throw a 67 at me for $200 a couple months ago, gun cleaned up great and with some new grips is an awesome shooter. Best $200 I have spent in a long time.

That's it, you nailed it. Thank God or I couldn't afford a cadilac shooter like these.

EricR, it came down to value for the money. I don't want safe queens. I want to shoot the guns I own. I have always like K frames and am really getting to like the postwar K frames (S prefixes). They are so smooth in their action; almost as smooth as my '51 K-38. The Model 10-8 I have is arguably the best shooter I have. It just fits me.
