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.
