I have acquired a S&W Model 10 that i believe was a british air force side arm. Just looking for some more information based on the expertise of you guys on this site. I was informed that it appears the barrel has been cut down, since the ejector rod looks to be that of a 5 1/2 inch barrel and it lacks the ejector rod guard on the barrel however i have come across certain model 10s without this guard. The grips appear to be factory plastic (was told for weight reduction). I did not buy this item but i would be interested to know how much it is worth.
