Default New to me 1006

Picked up a late version 1006 that I passed on 25 years ago.

I really didn't need another 10mm but price was right and the 3rd gens aren't getting cheaper or easier to find.

It's just like it came of the dealer shelf. Not a scuff, scratch or wear mark other than the factory test fire residue.

So now it's no longer unfired, but the only issue I found was the trigger play spring not doing its job.

Rivet is tight. I bent it foward a bit and seems to be fine for now but I haven't done any live fire since.

Should I go and pick up a new one and rivet or the old spring just unsprung itself and is good for another 25 years with the rebend?

Talking

That pistol is in top shape! Did they happen to have the original box also?

As to the trigger play spring, I would say reported issues are less common on the 10xx pistols than on the 4506 and 4566 guns. My 1006 was bought new in 1994 and I haven't had the problem but yep, I'm definitely familiar with the problem. I know many folks have gotten along well enough with simply bending.

I want to say one thing -- and honestly it is not my intention to offend or nitpick, it's just something that I believe has value in the conversation:

I don't agree, I don't believe this is a general reality across the board and it seems to get trotted out constantly and it's getting to be dogma.

I believe it is a fine time to be a fan and find 3rd Gens. In a world where tupperware and 1911's are constantly in your face, all metal DA/SA duty/service guns aren't a hot topic unless you hang out in this forum. There are tons of fantastic deals on great 3rd Gens, especially on Gunbroker. There's also lots still coming out of service and being offered for great prices (915's and CHP .40s) and we'll continue to see more as old guys get even older and start clearing out their safes.

It's seems to be tradition in gun forums to point out the "scarcity" of out-of-production models but the truth doesn't back it up. S&W made -many- hundreds of thousands of 3rd Gens and outside of us retro fans, these guns aren't popular like tupperware and 1911's.

Guys in forums say the same thing about 39-2's and that isn't backed by reality either. It isn't accurate -- it's rhetoric.

The 10xx models sell now for more than they did from 1990 to 1994, which happens to be outside the norm for 3rd Gens. Most of the other models tend to go for same or lower money than their prices when they were new in box. The dang TSW duty pistols from the early 2000's were $800-$900 guns and we get 'em for $500-$600 now with money that is less valuable today.

It is a wonderful time to be a fan of 1-2-3rd gen S&W pistols!

The pistol came with a, non original to this pistol, S&W cardboard box.

Pity the box didn't survive.

However to my surprise I have the original manual and inside that manual is the original box sticker.

Also, I was pleasantly suprised this 1006 shipped with a SS one peice guide rod.


It's quite a joy to shoot full house 10mm as Norma intended.

My Delta Elite XE can't do it without getting a tiny buldge, and that in itself is a disgrace.

Since I reload I tamed it down a bit for the Delta Elite XE so the brass isn't compromised.

This 1006 has no issues with the full nut, however it is no match to the Delta's trigger.

Comming from a 1911, the perceived and felt recoil are the same to me as is the weight.

It's quite a joy to shoot.

I did buy a factory curved grip to tryout, but in the end I like the straight grip better, and no way will I disgrace the pistol with any aftermarket nonsence.

Here's a pic of a great pair of tens.

Thumbs up

Flashbang, that is a Nice one! After having owned several previous S&W 10MMs, I bought my current 1026. Upwards of 20 years ago now I think. It appeared LNIB like yours, in the serial numbered box, with manual, both mags,etc. It still has the original trigger play spring, and the spring is still doing it's job.
I consider myself a 1911 guy, and have been a 10MM fan since acquiring a Bren Ten soon after they became available. Later had a Delta with the factory barrel, that left a lot of unsupported brass hanging out over the barrel throat. Never blew a case using the Norma ammunition, and equivalent reloads. But felt a lot better shooting the "real" 10MM ammo in the S&Ws with their well supported chambers. There are plenty of 3rd. Gens floating around at bargain prices, but the ones I've seen don't look to be 1006s in anything like the pristine condition yours is in.

BTW, I tried out the curved, and the FBI grip too. Went back to the straight....

The trigger play spring is just "cosmetic". I broke my 411 tps and never replaced it. Love my 1006 btw.

Haha, it is definitely more than cosmetic. The word you might have wanted was "critical", as in, this spring is not critical.

Absolutely makes a big difference in how the trigger operates and feels.

It'll likely be fine being bent but since Midway still (usually?) has the rivet & spring in-stock, & they're cheap, it'd be good insurance to buy a set, just to have in case. 3rd Gen parts aren't getting any easier to find.

One of my 10xx has the loose spring & I keep tightening it but it keeps getting loose. One day I'll have to repair it.

The large frame 3rd Gens, 10xx & 45xx, seem to have this affliction more than others.

Nice find!

I too have a 1006 I inherited from my great-uncle. My 1006, along with a 5903 I own, have black colored triggers and hammers. I notice many pictured in this thread have "silver" colored triggers and hammers. Is there more to this such as build date or something?

Yes.

S&W originally used silver controls on the stainless pistols and transitioned to black around 1991.

It is very (VERY!) rare that I ever see any S&W 10xx pistol with black hammer and trigger, but I have seen them. I have often wondered if they were some kind of factory re-work as they are truly that rare to find.
