One of the house guns

I had this out for a wipe down today so I thought I would share. In today's modern world of
firearms, it just amazes me how the S&W M&P which became the Model 10 when they began stamping model numbers back in 1957 has survived after all of these years. They
are still in production today. This Model 10-5 is from late 1975 which I picked up for less
that $ 200. Nice ones are getting hard to find today and if you are so fortunate to find one
be prepared to spend some serious cash. I'm thankful to have some of the old stuff from
days gone by. Here's my old Model 10-5. Rich

S&W MODEL 10-5 1975

I have one like that. I paid $100.00 for it as it was part of a batch that had been security guard guns. The insides were not even broken in but the outsides had holster wear, rust, and some pitting. I bought it as a work piece to try action work, and I removed all rust and refinished with Ox-pho blue from Brownells. Learned a lot from it that I used later on less expendable guns.

I was always drawn to the looks of the tapered barrel but sure prefer shooting the bull barrel.

Doesn't get more classic in a 38 than a Model 10. Love it. Thanks for sharing.

I love the S&W L frames fit me the best . I've been shooting SASS/ CAS soon long that a DA guns is very awkward and slow for me to shoot . So this is my pick

I would never feel poorly armed with any Mod 10.

Me, either, short of taking on a gang or multiple assailants and, in that situation, the odds would be against me, anyway, no matter how many rounds the gun would hold.

I know we've talked about this, before, but I'm very much like TGR in that I can shoot faster and with better accuracy with a single action revolver, using two hands, than shooting in DA with a DA revolver. In fact, I'm as good using two hands with the single action as I am with a semi-auto. The one place that it all falls apart for me is if I had to shoot with only one hand using the SA revolver. Then the DA or semi-autos winds, hands down.

I agree completely I'll take my 45 Long colt 3 1/2 inch barrel single action any day

I love my 44-40 I built , but I love my Glock 23C 7 times better in a gun fight . I can shoot my 44-40 SA just as fast as my Glock for 6 round .. It is the next 7 shoots where the Glock really shines .
