Default New to me S&W 10-7 snubbie

I fell into what I consider a very good deal. This S&W 10-7 snubbie has only minor flecking on the back strap, which is really hard to see without a magnifying lens, and of course the pronounced ring on the cylinder. Someone used the wrong size screw driver on the grips but it's minor to me. Otherwise the bluing is deep and dark. My photos aren't that great but they are what I'm capable of. The box is a little worn, and there aren't any tools, but the manual, registration card and other odds 'n ends are a nice touch. I don't know where it was from birth, 1980 according to S&W 3rd Edition, until the former owner bought it in 2001. But the gentleman who sold it to me took very loving care of this beauty. I am very fortunate to have been able to buy it.

I've always been a fan of the Model 10 snub. Beautiful!

Thanks. I have a 10-5 snubbing that isn't anywhere this nice. But it goes bang every time I pull the trigger!

The Model 10 only has one flaw: It is not chambered in 357 mag.

^^^^what he said. In 2" bbl. The late gunsmith Andy Cannon made many "street" conversions of K-frame revolvers. A gun magazine printed a photo of his workbench with several such guns displayed on it. Included was a SB 13 or 65 with a 2" bbl. Talk about a grail gun!
