Smith & Wesson .38 Special Model 10-6 Blue 4 inch Heavy Pinned Barrel 1972 Good Cond with Magna Grips
OUR # HG7987

Item Description

Here is an attractive, serviceable and thoroughly traditional S&W .38 Military and Police, numbered Model 10, Sixth Engineering change. From its D414000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1972. It served on security duty in New England. Barrel is one piece 4 inch Heavy, pinned into the frame, with 1:18.75 five groove right hand rifling. Sights are barrel integral serrated ramp front, with fixed notch frame integral rear. Capacity is 6 rounds of .38 Special, interchangeably with +P ammunition; type is traditional double and single action with transfer bar internal safety device; and construction is entirely blue steel with Smith & Wesson K Frame Square Butt grip frame. Ignition is hammer nose firing pin. with transfer bar internal safety mechanism. Trigger and hammer are.265 serrated face service trigger with matching serrated spur hammer. Grips are original walnut Magna service type. This 10-6’s surface detractions are extensive, principally finish damage due to weathering on the right side and back strap. We rate this 10 as Fair, perhaps Good, 60 percent vicinity by our estimate. Photos, at any rate, should suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Blast effect to the underside of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is negligible, only a faint impress. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap measures .005; and these facts, coupled with the faint carbon on the cylinder face, indicates to us that this revolver has not undergone very much firing, certainly not with +P rounds. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent; hammer travels an additional 5 to 10 degrees on all six positions in double action after the cylinder times into place. On single action, the hammer travels an additional 25 to 30 degrees on all six after timing. The single action trigger pull is a crisp and original 3 3/4 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, no more than 1/2 mm total. Replacement pricing on a current production model 10 classic is $739 on smith-wesson com, and we think this is a better revolver. We're offering this attractive, serviceable and collectable Model 10-6 Heavy Barrel for only $ 289.00 C&R Eligible. Not transferable to non FFL civilians in Massachusetts.
