One nickel plated gun that is. It’s a model 10-7, round butt with 2 inch barrel and magnas numbered to the gun. Serial number makes it a 1981, the year I graduated from high school. It has a pinned barrel, though those were discontinued sometime in 81. I have had it for maybe 2 years and had it to the range twice. It shoots great and apparently doesn’t know its a snub nose because it shoots like a big gun

Good looking gun.. My wife carried one of those as her duty sidearm back about 45 years ago.. It still does duty on the nightstand by her bed.
I wouldn't want to be between her and a bad guy if the stuff hit the fan.

I like the way Nickel looks but just too hard to keep clean. That one is great looking and a nice carry. For some reason you might have to get a Nickel mate

I always told Curt that I didn't think I would ever get a nickel gun. I like the looks, but if the nickel starts flaking they look bad and there isn't much you can do about it. When I saw this one I really checked it over well for flaws or damage to the finish and found it was fine. I figure I am competent enough to keep it looking good under my watch and at just under $450 out the door how could I resist

the 29-3 I bought new in the very early 80's and the finish is still like new, very little wear, it has had a lot more .44 special than magnum rounds but still, it really held up well.

You may only have a nickle, but buddy, can you spare a dime? (nice collections...)
