S&W .38 Special Model 10-5 Blue 4 inch Pencil Pinned Barrel 38 Spl M10 mod 10 VG 1971 Delaware Department of Corrections  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver

Here is an attractive, serviceable and thoroughly traditional Smith & Wesson .38 Military and Police, numbered Model 10, Fifth Engineering change, that our old friends at Davidson Supply traded with the Delaware Department of Corrections, at the Webb Correctional Facility in Wilmington. Only one of this revolver’s mates was Department marked. This one is authentic Viet Nam era. Its barrel is the same configuration tapering as its 1905 M&P Ancestors, and this revolver has served and protected citizens throughout the world more than any other. Barrel is 4 inches, 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 period correct Sile Italian Combat replacement combat. From its D371000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1971. Its principal surface detractions are only moderate holster whitening and finish freckling. Color Casehardening to the serrated service trigger and hammer is strong, and we rate this revolver as Very Good, 80 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for interested parties 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 under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is minimal, only a faint etchy streak that traverses the width of the top strap. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a tight .005; 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 5 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. The single action trigger pull is an exceptionally crisp 2 1/4 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, no more 1 mm total with the trigger relaxed. With the trigger pulled all the way, however, there is less than 1mm. We are including a North Carolina Department of Corrections left hand duty holster, one that is also period appropriate. We're offering this very attractive, serviceable and collectable Viet Nam / Nixon-Era Model 10-5 for only $ 339.00 Not transferable to civilians in California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts. Freight paid if we keep the grips.

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.
