Sent me this photo. I've never seen one with 10" barrel. What would it be worth? No box or stuff.

The folks like Jim Supica have evidentally not seen such an animal, as there's no mention of it in his books.
Can't find a reference to a 10" barrel in any of my resources, and I have a pretty good 'library'.
Obviously, that gun needs a letter, and lots of close-up, high-quality photos.
Points to ask about:
1) The grips appear to have been used considerably. The wear
indicators on the blued surfaces don't, particularly on the
2) Since all barrel-stock was alleged to have started life as 8-3/4"
would S&W have hand-forged a 10" barrel?
3) The front sight looks a bit odd...I can't find a 'twin' on any of my
R.M.'s. Custom?
Again, maybe.
IF the gun would letter, it could be a 'five-figure' example for sure.
To date, the rarest (and most-valuable) R.M. is the one-off .22lr caliber 8-3/4" example.
Please follow up on this gun, and keep the rest of us posted!
After all, this is the stuff that collectors and websites live for.


I remember that one from about a year or two....ago. :mrgreen:
Think you posted it before Midnight that year so it really didn't get noticed until April had them eating out of your hand ~ hook, line, and sinker.... :D

Don't feel too bad. The last time I put this on the other forum I had 5 people email with offers to buy it.

I also had a couple of folks blow a gasket and really raise hell about the picture.

No sense of humor, I guess.

I forgot it was April 1st. :lol: :lol:

I knew that there was something fishy about it but I'm not very knowledgeable so I waited to find out what the experts said.

I'm glad to see that you guys have a sense of humor and don't take yourselves to seriously. I also read another gun web site (about rifles) and those guys have no sense of humor and take themselves way to seriously. :?

You guys are very informative and easy to communicate with.
