Default 1076 inbound...

Yup. It happened. That special time in every 3rd gen fan's life... when that big, stainless 10mm with a wannabe Sig decocker becomes a reality.

http://www.gunbroker.com/item/705079013

I was kinda looking for a 4566.

Then I started thinking it might be cool to put 1076 grips on it.

Then started thinking it might be cool to just get a 1076.

So that's what I did. This one was priced better than most of the other ones currently on GB. And it has the FBI palm swell grips. And it has the front strap checkering.

I talked to the seller... he confirmed the decocker is functional. I asked about the two "dots" that indicate recall work was done... he didn't see any. But honestly, neither of us really knew what we were looking for, so we'll see.

Magazines both have yellow followers, and overall, it looks like it's in pretty good shape. I figure it was a decent buy for a 1076.

Anyway, will update when I get the thing. I'm kind of excited.

If it doesn't have the recall done I would suggest you call to get it done.

Mine was already done when I got it. They changed the side plate that is integral with the cross pins. Mine has a lock ring on the pin to keep the plate from moving and causing the decocker to fail to operate properly.

Thanks for the info. Smith will still do the work, as far as you know?

Funny how you opened the thread about "special time in a 3rd Gen fan's life... etc etc big stainless 10mm"

It must be odd or non-typical that the first center fire S&W pistol that I ever handled, fired or owned was a 1006. So before my 5906's or my 52's or my 39's or any of my PC guns... it was the big 1006 that was absolutely my first experience with any semi-auto Smith & Wesson, save for a six inch 422 that my buddy purchased in early 1991, which I popped a few shots from way back when it was new.

Enjoy yours, I think you got a lot of gun for relatively low money in that buy.

That's interesting. I guess, at one time, the Smith 10mms were kind of center-stage in the world of handgun development. In a way, they kind of paved the way for some of the other 3rd gens. So maybe it's just timing.

But thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I figure I did all right at that price. I was scoping a nice 4566 for significantly less... but I figure now was the time if I ever wanted to go 10mm.

I told the guy to look under the decocker lever for two marks. So I'm thinking he would seen those if they were there. My guess is, probably not updated.

I believe they will, it's a safety function issue.
