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

A little late to the party, but I picked up a 1006 today from a buddy who wasnít looking to sell it - it took $1100 to convince him otherwise. Got two white follower mags with it. I would have been happier to pay $425, but I was tired of looking so I coughed up the cash. Now I can scratch the 1006 off my list and concentrate on other guns.

Looks like you snagged an early model. Congrats! ... I prefer the fixed Novak sights to the factory adjustables.

Be advised that good-to-VG condition factory 10XX-series mags are selling north of $75, and the ones that are allegedly still NIB - if you can find them - are well north of $100.

Too bad about that disfiguring ambidextrous safety scar. But, they didnít come any other way. The old, smooth sided Second Generation models could be made to look most elegant by installing a cleaned-up 745 safety in place of the ambidextrous one.

Uhhhh, you can use a 2nd Gen non-ambi decocker on any 3rd Gen that uses an OEM ambi safety too.

The 745 safety choice was a curious one since the 745 never had the decocker feature, Iím curious if the safety drum is cut the same and will activate the hammer drop.

Mea culpa, I may have spoken too soon. The only 2nd Gen safety/decock levers that I have swapped around have been 9/40, so perhaps the .45/10 is a different part or of different dimensions.

Meanwhile, the 645 pictured above is interesting and very attractive. Is there a discussion on that pistol specifically? Or in lieu of that:

—is the finish standard/original, is it photo shading giving it the darker hue? Looks fantastic.

—the trigger guard... altered?

—the front sight... dovetailed?

—the target, nice group for sure but what was the distance? Was this from a rest?

- The 645 came stock with brush finished sides. This light absorbing finish resulted from sandblasting using 150 psi and No. 80 Garnet sand.

- I ground the obnoxious finger rest off the trigger guard. Did the same thing to an H&K P7. I really dislike hooked finger rests on trigger guards; they get caught on things and their use can actually be a detriment to good shooter performance.

- The front sight is a Wilson Combat white dot, which seemed like a good idea at the time (late 1990s). But now, given a second chance, it would be a tall Novak white dot. The Wilson dimensioned dovetail was cut after the original ramp front was ground off. The rear sight is an excellent MMC adjustable, unfortunately long discontinued.

- The target was shot standing, two handed, at 50 feet. The Bar-Sto match-grade barrel, fantastic sight picture, Third Generation guts and three pound trigger spring were most helpful. The load used was a very successful 50 yard Bullseye target load dating back to the 1950s (maybe even earlier), updated using Missouri Bullet Company Bullseye #1 .452Ē bullets instead of H&G 68s.



Hereís a late 1980s vintage Colt stainless steel GM 45 with the same finish, using the same load at the same distance, but with fixed Novak sights:



I suppose I could substitute a Novak adjustable rear sight to lower the POI. But, it doesnít seem worth the effort.
