Early morning snag at the San Antonio gunshow. Guy came by my table looking to trade this pretty nice Mod. 10-5. He wanted a Benelli shotgun, which I did not have. He could not make an even swap anywhere, so he was down to 250 form 3 bills on it. I lowballed him at 150 and after some haggle time, he settled for 180.

Gun appears to be pinned and recessed with @ 95% or better of it's blue. Nice bore. Gun shows little wear with just a bit of blue thinning at the sharp corners and muzzle. Grips are nice Pachy Grippers, but well worn. He forgot the original grips of course. Gun has a 4: barrel, fixed sights, and locks up tight. Only has a slight ring on the cylinder from the bolt/cylinder stop.

Good pistola, coudln't pass it up.

Dug up some old Remmy 158 gr. lead RN. Just the ticket for an old M&P revo. Set the target back to 15 yds. and did a single action, slow fire on it. Gun printed pretty [email protected] well. Just a bit off center. Might relieve the forcing cone a bit and see if it tightens up more and shifts a bit more left. Seems to have helped others like it before. Won't hurt any. Tried some 125 JHP Remmys too. Shot those mre to the right.

I love old Model 10's. The only one I have now is an old M&P (built before model designation) with a serial number that has no alphabetical prefix. Some Smith person said he thinks it's 1931 mgf/

Oh, that brings back memories. My first hand gun was a model 10, sadly it was stolen from my home 25 years ago, while I was hospitalized. I quickly learned about firearm security. I felt worse about letting my gun fall into the wrong hands, than my loss.
