Finish is blued steel and color casehardened hammer and trigger, with oil finish grip panels. Surface detractions are moderate, principally edge and lateral holster wear. We rate this model 10 as Very Good condition, 75% vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent 11 pounds vicinity, and the hammer travels fully 10 to 15 degrees on all six positions in double action after the cylinder times. On single action, the hammer travels 30 to 35 degrees on all six, and single action trigger pull measures a tight but crisp original 5 1/2 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is moderate, a shallow etchy area that traverses 90% of the width of the top strap as the photos should show. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a tight .004. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright and clean. We sold model 10s new in the 1960s for $55 to $65.00. We estimate Montreal PD paid $40 for this one. Replacement pricing on its current production descendant 10-14, however, is $739, and ours is a better revolver.
