Here is an attractive, serviceable and thoroughly traditional Smith & Wesson .38 Military and Police, numbered Model 10, original engineering configuration with no model suffix, that spent its entire career enforcing the law in South Louisiana. Note the screw above the trigger guard, front center of the frame. This is an old style 4 screw variant. Note that there is a slight swell in the barrel about 1 1/2 inches back from the muzzle, not noticeable but certainly a detraction. It came into service in 1961 during the early career of the Honorable Gordon J. Martin, who served as Sheriff of St. James Parish, and spent a total of 40 years serving and protecting the good citizens of that jurisdiction. Barrel is 4 inch Standard or Pencil variant, pinned in place to the frame, with serrated ramp front sight. Capacity is 6 rounds of .38 Special, interchangeably with +P ammunition; type is traditional double and single action with transfer bar internal safety device; and construction is entirely blue steel with Smith & Wesson K Frame Square Butt grip frame. Trigger and hammer are original color casehardened .265 serrated face service trigger with matching serrated spur hammer. Grips are 1970s Sile Italian Combat replacement combat. Holster wear and surface detractions are extensive, principally cylinder whitening and browning to the grip frame back strap. We nevertheless rate this revolver as Good, 60 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. This Model 10 has a barrel swell, as we have noted and as the photos show. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is negligible, a thin short streak that traverses half the width of the top strap. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap measures .008; and these facts, coupled with the moderate blue wear to the ejector rod, indicates to us that this revolver has not undergone very much firing, certainly not with +P rounds. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent; hammer travels an additional 10 degrees on all six positions in double action after the cylinder times into place. On single action, the hammer travels fully 35 degrees on all six after the cylinder times. The single action trigger pull is a crisp original 3 7/8 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, less than 1mm both with the trigger relaxed and with it pulled. Forward movement of the open cylinder on the yoke is moderate, about 3mm by our estimate.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
