This Pistol is not C&R Eligible. Here is an attractive, serviceable and thoroughly traditional Smith & Wesson .38 Military and Police, numbered Model 10, Fifth Engineering change, that spent its entire career enforcing the law in South Louisiana. It came into service in 1977 under the Administration 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 period correct Sile Italian Combat replacement combat. Its principal surface detractions are only moderate holster whitening and finish freckling; and a small amount of that freckling is etchy. Color Casehardening to the serrated service trigger is strong but spotty; and the Louisiana Deputy who carried this 10-5 shortened its hammer spur by about 1/4 inch. We nevertheless rate this revolver as Good, perhaps Very Good, 70 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 moderate, a shallow etchy groove that traverses the width of the top strap as the photos show. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .007; 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 an additional 25 to 30 degrees on all six after timing. The single action trigger pull is a stiff but crisp and original 4 3/4 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is negligible, less than 1mm total, with the trigger relaxed. Forward movement of the open cylinder on the yoke is moderate, about 2mm by our estimate. With the trigger pulled all the way, however, there is no lateral movement at all to the cylinder.
