Default Bargain 10-5

I picked up my second 10-5 just a few days ago for a pretty good price. I know these are kind of considered bottom shelf on the collecting hierarchy but I am personally mostly interested in blue collar working guns that have been there and done that.




The finish is work-worn but the gun is mechanically healthy and the bore is flawless. Hard-worn guns like this develop such interesting character and textures, they are always my favorite pieces of my collection. It's handy for me that they're so much cheaper - I got this one for $199.



Here it is next to my first 10, newer by about 3 years but in slightly better shape. That one ran me $350. I'm new to S&Ws overall and didn't really even mean to start collecting them but I guess I am now. How am I doing?

You're doing pretty well so far, but be careful.....they tend to be addicting!

Scratch the words " tend to be" and substitute " are"

Hard to go wrong for $199; great old guns. I keep saying "no more M&Ps or M10s." Here's the last one (10-5) from a month or so ago that I couldn't leave behind.

Got this 10-5 from a pawn shop 20 years ago for $150. Probably paid too much at the time but I was looking for a square butt M&P with a 2" barrel.




Here it is today.

A Model 10 ain't nothing to be ashamed of. They are THE basic gun, IMO. Every collection needs at least one or three.

I would jump on that for $199, I cannot find any “cheap beater” K frames in my area. I have the good fortune to have tons of shops in my area but used revolvers are surprisingly scarce
