Shiney old Model 10-7

Hey folks.
I traded into this one about five years ago when thinning
the herd. I traded some old black powder stuff that I had
no use for anymore. I believe I have no more than $ 250
into this old S&W. It doesn't get shot much as I have a
lot of 38 Special's..mostly gathers dust in the safe now.

Rich, I let one of those current production Model 10 Classics slip away on a trade and I've been regretting it ever since. Would have preferred one of the older ones, but that Model 10 was such a pleasure to shoot. What a timeless classic.

it still to this day suprises me a tad that Smith offered the square butt option on most of their snubs .

the square butt snubs are not rare but still not exactly plentiful...........a lot of them got converted to RB somewhere down the line.

It's true, that is probably part of it's classic appearance. I have a Mod 19 2 1/2" and a Mod 65 3" with the round butt and they do conceal better but the square butt does give a better grip. I use Hogue grips on these and I noticed with the conversion grip the guns do feel more secure, though they are harder to hide.

Round but for concealment and faster draw and square for target work has always worked for me, too. S&W, though, has not always adhered to this philosophy. For instance, I still rounds on some monstrous 357 and 44 mag target guns that are anything but concealable and it makes the gun almost impossible to hold in the hand. I suspect they're going more for looks on some of these guns.

They seemed to try to go all round butt for a while using conversion grips where square butts were appropriate. I don't know if they are still doing it. I agree that an N frame with a round butt is a little strange. I have had K, L, and N frames that way. Two came with round butt grips and one with conversion grips. It was the K that had the conversion grips, a 617 with six shot cylinder, full underlug and four inch barrel.
