Search this forum for info on the 1006. The 1006 will hod up very well, better than any 1911. There are some VERY hot factory from Buffalo Bore and Double Tap that will eventually wear out anything. The 1006 is a very tough pistol. There is not currently a .40 conversion offered. See the thread "attention 10mm owners" or somrthing like that for a possible source for .40 barrels.

Yes and no.

Yes, the 1006 S&W is tough as nails and will stand up to any commercially available 10mm ammo, virtually forever. So no worries in that department.

No, nobody is making a .40 S&W barrel for them at this time, but as someone has said there's hope that may change.

(Now that's my kind of Hope and Change!)

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your 10mm

There are a bunch of 1006 owners here and at the 10mm Forum. I don't remember hearing a complaint. Definitely no complaints about mine.

Hi Jeff and welcome to the forum!
The 1006 is one of the tougher 10mms out there (right behind the Glock 20). I had one for quite sometime and really enjoyed it, but ended up tradeing it for a 1076 (I wanted something smaller). I do remember reading a torture test of said handgun done by Frank James, he and some volunteers put 10,000 rounds thru it and besides some small parts breakage and a ruined recoil spring, IT KEPT GOING!
If you do run the full power stuff through it, I suggest that you replace the recoil spring every 5,000 rounds. Outside of that just regular maintainence is all it'll need.
These guns are very accurate and very reliable! And look for the post in this section by bad man one on possible barrel conversions. Dale

I can relate! My local shop found me a 1006 and hopefully I get to pick it up next week.

The 1006 is a great pistol! The factory loads are a little downloaded now compared to the "original" Norma level loads. I prefer at least full power loads (current standard max loads in the manuals), and occasionally shoot higher level ones more true to the originals.

To that end, I replaced the factory standard 18# recoil spring with a Wolff 22# spring. It works fine with standard 170/180 gr loads and gives me a bit more cushion for heavier 180 and especially 200gr loads. If I were shooting mostly 200gr loads at the highest velocities, say for hunting or "bear" loads, I might even go with a 24# spring. You will definately notice the difference when racking the slide even on a 22# spring. I think a lot of women especially would have difficulty operating it even with proper push/pull technique.

Thumbs up My favorite 10MM

I played with a 1006 and went for a Lew Horton Tactical in 40S&W. My favorite 10MM is my Dan Wesson C-Bob. It under-went a few changes to handle the loads I like to use.

I love my CBOB 10mm, but even with the DoubleTap recommended spring of 26# is still flings brass at least 30' out. It's a pain to go fetch them

Got in late on this thread ...

But for the 1006 owners out there, how many have the fixed-rear sight version, versus the later one with the adjustable sight?

Just curious, as the ones I once in a while see at gunshows have the adjustable.

Mine is a very early 1006 ("TET"-prefix) with the fixed sights (now Novak Tritium sights, actually).

I thought both adj and fixed were offered at the same time? My adj is an early 104xxx sku (sorry, don't have it here to check) with a TEV prefix SN.

No, the adj sight models came later in the 1006 run, ... after the FBI asked Smith to develop a "Commander"-sized (4.25") 10mm model w/ a Sig-style decocking lever and fixed night sights.

My "TET1XXX" is an early model 1006. I replaced its 3-dot sights with the Novak Tritiums.

The SCSW doesn't necessarily show that, although as we all know it is impossible to be 100% on S&W. Just when you think S&W didn't do something or didn't make a certain combo somebody always comes up with a pic that they did

It lists:
#104800 = 1006 AS, 1990-91, 2nd trigger guard (this is what I have)
#105004 = 1006 FS, 1990-91, 2nd trigger guard
#105500 = 1076, 1990-92
^-- later product id # is what made me think they came later. Do you have info otherwise?

One thing noticeably missing are product id's for the 1st trigger guard. So, potentially there are a lot of models missing.

A couple of questions for you...
Do you have the box? If so, what is the product #? I am wondering if you have the first trigger guard and what it looks like.

Even thought he OP refers his question to a 1006, I can speak for the durability of the 1066. I have shot EVERYTHING there is out of mine, flawlessly.

Well, on the trigger guard, ... remember they built the 3rd Generation 4506s first, and that's where the trigger-guard change started from first-to-second generation TGs. IIRC, S&W carried that shape change to the TG into the 10XX-series production. So my 1006 has a TG that's rounded, which is what also appears on the 1076s.

Nope, sorry, no box.

But S&W can tell you from the serial # of your 10XX-series pistol what its "born-on" date is. One of their reps told me that the prefix is the key indicator (just what I was told, could be wrong...)

Well, here's where it pays to remember what gun I'm talking about ...

Quick update:

It was one of my other S&W autos that I don't have a box for. I did have the box for the 1006 (stumble across it this p.m. looking for something else), and Remat457 is absolutely correct. My apologizes.

Product code stated on the box is: 105004.

Given the 1990-91 dates Remat listed in his last post, maybe S&W was producing alternating runs of fixed and adjustable sight 1006s for buyers who wanted different rear sight options, especially L.E. which typically prefers a fixed rear sight, ... and tritium sights at that.

Thanks Remat ...

Frank,
Thanks for checking and clarifying. Additionally, I had been wondering about that 2nd trigger guard and why they didn't mention anything about the 1st one! This is a good thread. I just picked up my 1006 last weekend (after looking for one for a while) so I had recently read that section (but not the 45xx one) :P

I am impressed though -- the 1006 was definitely ahead of its time (undercut trigger guard, serrated front strap, checkered trigger guard and TIGHT). I must find a 1066 now

I'm not sure about a conversion from 10mm to 40, But the 1006 is one great gun. I would check with a certified gunsmith.

I have had my S&W1006 since new March 1990, it has been abolutely fantastic, I also picked up a few other in the 10xx series.

About the conversion barrels, Bad_Man_One is doing about a hundred or so, but time on the CNC machine where he was working on them has been limited by contract work. He mentioned about seeking other options for the machine work.

Bar-Sto use to make some conversions, I have the Bar-Sto Match Grade 40S&W and 9x25Dillon 5.00" barrels for my 1006 that I hand fitted to the slide and frame. Both function very well.
