Smith & Wesson .38 Special Model 10-5 Pencil 4 inch 1970 Montreal Police Department Blue with Magna Grips Good Condition

Item Description

This listing is for the exact revolver in the photos. From duty with the Service de Police de Montréal, Montreal Police Department in English, comes this serviceable and historic Service Revolver. Manufacturer was Smith & Wesson of Springfield, MA. Named model is .38 Military & Police. Numbered model is 10, Fifth Engineering Change. From its D311000 range serial number, it was issued in 1970 under Chief Jean-Paul Gilbert, and served 30 years before the department switched to semi autos. Type is traditional swingout double and single action service revolver with transfer bar safety mechanism. Frame is K Medium Square Butt. Construction is entirely steel metal, with 4 inch one piece tapered or Pencil Barrel, 1:18.75 five groove right hand rifling, pinned into the frame. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special caliber. Cylinder Capacity is six rounds. Sight is barrel integral serrated ramp front, with fixed notch frame integral rear. Cylinder release thumb latch is classic checkered serration concave. Ignition is hammer nose type firing pin on a .265 service width hammer, with matching serrated face service trigger. Markings are .38 S&W Special Ctg. right side of barrel, Smith & Wesson on the left side, standard Trade mark logo with Reg. U.S. Pat. Ofc. on the side plate, and Made in U.S.A. / Marcas Registradas / Smith & Wesson / Springfield, Mass. on the frame right side. Yoke number is 20000 range with armorer and proof mark; Mod. 10-5 inside the frame opposite the yoke, with no serialization inside or on the rear cylinder face. Import mark is under the barrel's muzzle end per the 1968 Gun Control Act. Grips are period correct checkered Goncalo magna service type. Dimensions are 9 inches overall length, 5 inches height, and 1.425 cylinder thickness. Weight empty is 30 ounces, centered at the trigger. Finish is bright blue throughout, with color casehardened hammer and trigger; and with semi gloss grip panels. Surface detractions are moderate, principally lateral wear, edge wear, and backstrap wear. We rate this model 10 as Good, perhaps Very Good condition, 70 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent 11 pounds vicinity, and the hammer travels 5 degrees on all six positions in double action after the cylinder times. On single action, the hammer travels 20 to 25 degrees on all six, and single action trigger pull measures a crisp original 3 1/4 pounds. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal with the trigger relaxed; and negligible with the trigger fully depressed. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is moderate, a shallow etchy area that traverses 90% of the width of the top strap as the photos should show. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap measures a perfect .007. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright and clean. We sold model 10s new in 1970 for $79 to 99.00. We estimate Montreal PD paid $60 for this one. Replacement pricing on its current production descendant 10-14, however, is $739, and ours is a better revolver. We’re offering the Neighbourly Canadian Smith & Wesson Pencil Barrel 10-5 in the photos for only $ 339.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California or Massachusetts. Any ammunition or personnel showing in our photos are Not included. Search terms Montreal PD will bring up all our SPM model 10s on this venue
