Default If I send a model 10-10 to Smith to repair...

If I sent a model 10-10 in for repair will Smith convert it to a transfer bar/new hammer set up like the newer models even if I want it left alone. If so I'd find a gunsmith instead. I know Ruger has that policy for liability/safety reasons.

There is no transfer bar in the model 10's with the frame mounted firing pin. (or any other S&W) Depending on the issue with the gun, repairs will be confined to fixing the specific problem and replacing worn or damaged internal parts if needed.

Thanks, I was just enlightened on another forum. A "gunsmith" at my range commented on my 10-10, which I bought there, as being the only one out of the 10 they had which had no transfer bar. I told him they had 10-8s with the hammer mounted firing pin like my 10-10 and he said ya but mine was the only one w/o transfer bar. This confused me because I couldn't understand how you could have both a transfer bar and hammer mounted firing pin. I was told he was great with revolvers but apparently he knows little about the 6 million model 10s that were made. He also told me that a side plate screw I was missing was the same screw as the one forward of it(yoke screw) which I argued with him about.

Well you can definitely have a revolver with a frame mounted firing pin AND a transfer bar... that's how Ruger revolvers are designed. S&W however uses no transfer bar. S&W does employ a hammer block, which can be mistaken for a transfer bar when you peer top down inside a cocked revolver... if you aren't familiar with the design.

Someoneís got it confused with Ruger.

If you send Ruger a pre-1973 revolver for work, they might install the transfer bar, I donít know if thatís their policy.

If you took apart a S&W revolver and yanked the hammer block out and left it on the work bench and reassembled, you'd likely never know it was missing (well, unless you dropped a loaded revolver and something went horribly wrong...) but if you pulled the transfer bar from a Ruger revolver and left it out of the gun, that revolver would never fire again.

That is definitely their policy, and they send your revolver back with new parts installed and your original parts in a bag. Most folks who enjoy Ruger single action hoglegs are in the camp that the old design allowed for a far better trigger and, well, experience overall, but everyone typically agrees that the modern transfer bar system used in Ruger single actions is a much more safe design.
