Default Three inches of fury

Hi folks,

Just wanted to share a 60-10 that fell in my lap. She came with the Uncle Mikes, but looks a bit more dressed with the bananas.








Looking for a holster now, she needs to be carried. Daily.

It was in a dark corner of a pawn shop, looking as if it had lived its life in the floorboard area of an oil field truck.


Actual crude oil may have been used as a lubricant. It was funky in there.

Congratulations

Those 357 Magnum, 3" Chiefs Special Target, Model 60s are great little revolvers



Mine is from a small run of Mag-Na-Ported, 357 Magnum, Model 60 Chiefs Special Targets for Lew Horton

These were called the "Small Hunter"

Nice find; probably my favorite J frame. Found its earlier -4 version in 38 Special last fall.

I'm on the hunt for one of those too. 60-9 or 60-10 3". There is a scarcer-than-hens-teeth fixed sight 60-9 that is REALLY what I want...

Although I used to carry S&W Model 28-2 and 66, my 60-10 is by far my favorite revolver.

Mine rides unnoticed in a Kydex IWB holster

Anyone have a pic of a 3-inch 60 wearing the square Target grips?

I bet that REALLY looks like a baby 686...

I have one of these also. It was a special run around 1990. Kinda rare. I sure would like to know how many they made.

Request a Historical letter

If your revolver was part of any type of special run, that information will be included

Love the gun, hate the grips.

Here's my 629 with similar grips that I also don't like. I'm leaving them on as this one has never been fired and they came with the revolver.

Great looking 3" Model 60! Best I can do is a 60-15 Pro Series. I carried her for a short period of time. The 3 inches are wonderful shooters! Keep an eye on the screws, as they like to loosen up especially if you shoot any magnums out of her. Mine came wearing some pretty nice stocks too.

Those are all nice ones. We have one here and it goes well with the 686 +.



Three inch barrels are favored by both of us here.

For appropriate holsters for a 3 Model 60, check out El Paso Saddlery and Galco:





That speed loader carrier is, obviously, Bianchi (now made in Mexico).

Gotta be fun to touch off a Buffalo Bore .357 out of a 3" J-frame

I find my 60-10 very controllable with 158 gr. factory .357 mag. with the Crimson Trace grips that are on it. I also find it very accurate out to 50 yards. That extra 1" of barrel and better sights really make it superior to the Chiefs Special.
