This one is a big deal for me. I now have (or will when it gets here) a Model 10 nd through the Model 10-10. Another collection goal accomplished.

Not in great shape but not many of mine are; I like shooters. I guessing it is from 1989 but Roy will let me know soon. Blue, 4" barrel and I believe it will have the matching grips.

I may even have a shot of Templeton Rye tonight I'm so pumped!!

Congratulations on achieving your goal!! I have thought about where I am going with my collection of S&W shooters. I really like the 686's and one of my first revolvers was a 4" 686. I decided I would like one of each standard barrel length up to the 6 inch. So far I have a 2.5", 3" and the 4". The hard ones are out of the way so a 6" will be next. Beyond that goal I am wandering aimlessly with a bit of this and that

What about the 5 and 7 inchers?

I have a M-10-7 2" that was one of my favorites to carry and shoot.......until I got a Ruger LC9s 9mm. last August. It is still one of my favorite revolvers. I have 3 S&W K frames. They are all excellent!!! Bob

Those are available in the 3-5-7 series, so I dont consider them standard production, but I wouldnt rule them out either
I thought the 3-5-7 series WAS standard production......is that not the case?

I picked up the Model 10-9 today. Not too bad of shape. Needs cleaning but seems to be sound mechanically. I saw that C.A.I. Georgia, VT had been engraved on the left side of the frame below the cylinder. That is an import company in Georgia, Vermont; Century International Arms. Obviously this gun has been out of the country.

Here it is back from the range before cleaning

Now for the range report. This revolver may supplant my 10-8 as my favorite. Very smooth, solid and accurate.

First six rounds for me ever with this gun

Twelve rounds

18 rounds
names like nora

Then I got brave and backed it off to 10 yards and went for the head.



The one above the target is not mine. :D As you can see I still need work on my smiley face.

The stocks are not original to the gun. They came off of a K frame from late 1956.

Okay finally broke the revolver down and cleaned it up. Cleaned up nicely.
