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.

Update:

So the seller put the wrong address on the Fedex shipment... now it's back to the seller... then (hopefully) back out to my FFL.

Sigh.

If you ever decide you still want a 4566 I have one I could part with. It has both the curved and straight grips.

Nice 1076. I got mine a few years ago, and it started my DA/SA interest and collecting. Smiths of course but Sigs and Berettas also.

My 1076 dosen't have punch marks but it was documented by Smith as recall work done. You can call and they'll check their serial number list.

Thanks. I might take you up on that, at some point. I should probably unload a few first though.

That's good to know. I was kinda bummed I'd have to wait another few weeks to get the gun running (which still might be the case) but it's good to know there's at least a chance they can look it up.

Thanks.

Right now, the thing is in Memphis... on its way back to Indiana... from Northern Kentucky. Go figure. I wish there was a face palm emoji...

I should get it by the middle of next week.

1076!! My first Smith & Wesson 3rd generation was a 1006, I really liked that gun a lot. But I like the 1076 even better!

This one is a former Kentucky State Police weapon, with a record of saving the officer's life. It's such a pleasure to shoot as well!
