Default Tell me about the 1006

OK so I have some extra cash and visited a local shop and spot a 1006 with 3 mags for $425. Looked to be in good shape. I donít have any 10mms(yet) and donít really need a different caliber in my safe, but It looks cool!

I would have bought that Model 1006 without a magazine for $425!!!!! If it has 3 factory mags, consider you will be hard pressed to find a factory S&W 10mm magazine for less than $80, so any way you cut it that is a smoking deal!

It’s big, it’s heavy...but fun as heck to shoot. I hope by now the shop has opened and you’re filling out the 4473. We’ll wait for the range report.

Unless it is completely trashed or glows in the dark that is a very good price.

That's an unbelievably good deal for one, I paid over twice that for mine + the California tax and it only came with one magazine (which are at best $60 each).

I stopped back and looked it over. On closer examination there is wear on the sharp edges of the slide and bright marks in the matte finish. Iím undecided.

It's stainless steel, so finish wear shouldn't be a factor at all because you can easily refinish it yourself at home however you like.

Holds no bearing on the gun itself... with the slide fully locked put your finger on or in the barrel and try and move it.... if nothing then you are rocking! Ide be happy to call and sort this out for you!?

Unless something's very wrong mechanically, that's a great deal. Finish wear? Eh, it'll get that eventually anyway. Although I do have to wonder if the shop knows something we don't, at that price. OTOH, you could sell the mags, and probably get the rest of the price for parts. Just thinkin' out loud.

A 1006 sold for under 500 bucks makes me think there's something REALLY wrong here. Dry cycle and fire the gun, if it seems okay, I'd get it. The finish could be restored and I think S&W offers that as a pay-for-service. Unless the frame is cracked or the barrel is bulged such you cannot draw the slide all the way back, I'd pay the money and get it. It can be restored so long as there's no irreversible damage to the parts.

I don’t think a shop can sell a gun with major issues(such as a bulged barrel or cracked frame) due to liability. With that being said, it could slip through the cracks. I would do a function check and give it a good visual inspection. If it’s just cosmetic, that’s one heck of a price. Like others have said, almost too good to be true.

The mags alone would be worth $200-$300, even if everything else was trashed you could have parted it out. If you don't buy it PM the name of the shop and I will.

A shop can sell anything, even a broken firearm as a "U Fix Em." I've seen it myself, they're sold as parts guns. Also, in regards to used firearms, the principal of Caveat Emptor reigns supreme. Yes, they can sell garbage guns, its up to you the buyer to know what youre getting into.

As others have mentioned, the spare mags are worth ~ $75-$80 each so it sounds like the gun is being offered at about a 70% off sale. If it checks out, buy it.
Since no one else has posted a photo yet......

Many find the non-adjustable sights more appealing and I think they are fewer than the adjustable sight models and worth even more.

Hereís my adjustable sight 1006 along with my 610ND.

Honestly, since when did a cheap bead-blasted finish become so desirable that it's worth passing up a crazy good deal over?

If you aren't going to take advantage of this then the least you can do is provide the name/number of the gunshop so that one of the many guys here who would jump at this deal can take advantage of it.

I bought one at a pawn shop back in January. It was nowhere near as good a deal as the 1006 you may have let slip by. It was scuffed-up, but that didn't matter... Scotch-Brite made it look a whole lot better.

Found a 1006 in a pawn shop

OK you guys convinced me. The shop opens at 10 Eastern. I’ll be there at 9:58. If it’s still there (it was there yesterday at 1)and checks out, I’ll buy it.
Who know maybe I’ll flip it if I don’t like it, after I buy dies, etc.
I really had no idea the $$$ these bring. I thought it was just a Gen 3 in 10mm.
Why are they so pricey? Whats the draw?

Well, they weren't in production for very long. Basically once Smith & Wesson went all in with the .40 S&W cartridge they dropped the 10XX Series completely in favor of the 40XX. Plus most of the folks who own them really like them and speak very highly of them, so they don't show up very option, and when they do, they aren't cheap.

Savvy people lurking this website. Your location is obvious, all they have to do is call around to find the store.
Too bad the lucky buyer isn't me... and that's only because I'm too far away. LOL
