A few days we had several posts about the S&W Model 10. Here is my favorite one. This heavy barrel revolver sat in a police evidence locker for about 6 months with some blood on the barrel and frame. This ruined the bluing and caused rusting in several places. I sent it to Gary and asked him to clean it up and put on a matt finish Black Chromex. Since the grips were broken I asked for new grips as well. I was amazed at the transformation. I carry if often in the woods here. As usual, thanks Gary for the great work.[image]

I have a M64, same in stainless although

my S&W is later and has no pin above the barrel threads and the cylinder chambers are not recessed. I do not like a silver front sight but this one I can see ok. I have been tempted to "square butt" it myself to open more grip options. Hogue grips are by far the best feeling rubber type grips but they stick out a bunch. I prefer wood and I truly think the factory service stocks coupled with a Tyler T-grip adapter is about the best option.

I'd show you mine but I'd get fun poked at me. I've just not found the grip combination I like. My L-frame 686 RB has a set of prized Kim Ahrends stocks on it. I never, ever liked the S&W "target stocks".

The M10/64/65 is great. Just stoke it with a 158 gr. and go on with no worries.

I CAN SEE RD BUTTING A SQU BUTT BUT

made a dyslexic slip in my post! I have considered "Round Butting" the M64. That should be OK right, fat chance it becoming a big collectable.

CHECK OUT BOTTOM RIGHT .44 SPECIAL

"The Road Less Traveled...". I find deviations from mainstream more interesting. Fantastic grips too!

"SOMEONE" WANTED TO CONVERT THIS ONE

Always thought I'd like it more as a 32 cal something. 32 H&R or a 321 GNR.

I guess if you found a M17/18 .22 cylinder

that could be fitted, it would be a small matter to re-chamber it and rebarrel to what you wanted, for smaller calibers.

Please post pic of flip-side, t-y!

In Fall of 1978 I was issued a model 10, blue, bull barrel, fixed sights, 4 inch, 38 special revolver. I was 21 and a brand new police officer. We carried 125 gr Winchester HP ammo and the only modification that was allowed was a grip change. Most of us installed the rubber Pachmayr Presentation Grip. Once we were permitted to transition to a .357 I changed over to a S&W model 28 Highway Patrolman. Back in the day these pistols were a solid, reliable work horse. You brought back memories from 4 decades ago, I am officially on the hunt for a model 10 such as yours.
