S&W .38 Special Model 10-5 Blue 4 inch Pencil Pinned Barrel 38 Spl M10 mod 10 VG 1969 Tennessee Civilian Revolver    Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: Here is an attractive, serviceable and thoroughly traditional S&W .38 Military and Police, numbered Model 10, Fifth Engineering change, that has spent its career just as what it is: the best house gun ever made. This is a civilian owned Model 10 that comes to us from an estate in nearby Humphreys County, Tennessee. From its D244000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1969. 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 original issue with factory K stamping and matching serial number to the revolver itself, only without the D letter prefix. Right panel exhibits some very faint weathering on its high points. Surface detractions are minimal, only a small amount of finish freckling on the trigger guard and on the frame edges next to the trigger and a similar area around the back of the rear sight notch. Some of that freckling, small though it is, is etchy feeling. We rate this S&W, then, as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, 85 to 90 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. This Model 10 is Excellent mechanically. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Blast effect to the underside of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is negligible, only a faint etchy mark that traverses half the width of the top strap, with no cutting whatsoever. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .007. Note that the cylinder face has minimal carbon deposits showing. These facts, coupled with the minimal blue wear to the ejector rod, indicates to us that this revolver has not undergone very much firing, certainly not with +P rounds. We estimate it has been fired fewer than 30 times. 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 an additional 25 degrees on all six after timing. The single action trigger pull is a crisp and original 4 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is negligible with the trigger relaxed; with the trigger fully depressed there is no lateral play at all. We're offering this very attractive, serviceable and collectable authentic Tennessee domiciled Model 10-5 for only $ 339.00 Not transferable to civilian residents of California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts.
