From 1967. The last year of the C prefix. Glad to have found this one. Carried often, shot little.



Need to take it for a test run but this one is going to spend some days on the hip, for sure.

Beautiful little side kick to start the new year with. I do not foresee any regrets at all with that one.

Nice 10. I was at the range with it's cousin yesterday. Also a 10-5 but a little newer. Talk about a perfect gun to practice you double action shooting skills . When you get everything right they can be amazingly accurate. If you are a little off you are going to know it !

Shaun,
Congratulation on the acquisition. That wheel gun should be a great shooter.
It's a good thing you never made a New Years resolution that you wouldn't buy any new guns this year! Because you would have broken it pretty early.

Regards,
Gregory

It seems like all the m10 snubs I have seen are the odd dash numbers, like 10-5 or 10-7. This denotes the tapered barrel. Did they also make the snubby version with the heavy barrel? Also, any idea which is more common, the square or round butt snub M10? I seem to see more square butt models. Mine has a round butt

Very cool find! I really like that configuration, here's a picture of what might be your gun's grandfather! For some reason this look signifies the old school term "Roscoe" to me! Enjoy it and yes, do carry it if possible! kjdfjemnd

So here is an interesting development. Per the serial C993k, the gun dates to 1967. Being they discontinued the C prefix and the Diamond grips, I figured the grips were not factory. In checking them just now, they are stamped with matching serial. So it would seem the gun stuck around the factory until ‘68 and got the non diamond grips.

Other than a fine and hopefully not to expensive model 15 snub, that is one that husband wants to find.
