      Arrow Care To Tell Me Exactly What This Is?

      Here's hoping I posted in the right section, but I'm not exactly sure what era this is from. My expertise doesn't carry over into the revolver world unfortunately, and I'm an Hk guy anyways.

      Just looking to be informs of what model this is, about what year it's from, anything special about it, and even a guess at what it's value might be, etc..etc...

      Thanks :P

      Thank you Captian Obvious, you can internet stalk. Do you feel special?

      It's a .38 caliber, it's a S&W, it's a revolver, anyone can figure that much out. I'm looking for some more in depth information into it than that.

      Um, name-calling is sorta stupid, especially since she answered your question with a valid, helpful Wikipedia link.

      ...Oh, and, by the way, get rid of that extremely unsafe holster.
      A safe holster covers the pistol's trigger. It keeps you from grabbing that trigger until you've pointed the gun in the direction in which you intend to shoot.

      No, the "safety strap" does not accomplish the same thing.

      Honestly, the holster is the last thing I am worried about. This gun will never be carried, the holster will never be used. I didn't come here to discuss how safe or unsafe the holster is. It looks like someone actually cut the holster out to accomplish exposing the trigger anyways, for whatever reason they thought it was good for.

      Looks to be a pre-Model 10 or "Victory Model"

      Take a look at the flat of the grip frame between the panels and see what the serial number is. That might help in ID'ing the gun.

      Model 10, manufactured 1961-1962, approximate value $350-$375.

      I'm not what I would call a revolver guy, but I'm pretty sure the half moon front sight predates the model 10 designation.

      Could be an early model 10, apparently the half moon sight did carry over for some time into the model 10 era.


      Can wee see some better pics of the right side of the gun? This site: Smith & Wesson model changes has some good info on the revision history of various S&W revolvers.

      Model 10 -1 1959 Heavy Barrel
      -2 1961 Changed extractor rod thread to LH on standard barrel
      -3 1961 Same as above, for heavy barrel
      -4 1962 Screw in front of trigger eliminated
      -5 1962 1/10" to 1/8" front sight, on standard barrel
      -6 1962 Screw in front of trigger guard eliminated on heavy barrel model
      -7 1977 Change to put gas ring from yoke to cylinder
      -8 1977 Change to put gas ring from yoke to cylinder on heavy barrel model
      So apparently, yours is at least a pre '62.
      With the cylinder open there may be a marking inside frame where the crane goes, not sure if they did that with the older guns or not.

      Try running you pictures on S&W forum. Some of those people know more about S&W's than Smith and Wesson, they have always been able to help me.

      Steve M1911A1,

      I will disagree with you on covering that trigger. I prefer my trigger well clear of leather, and no "safety strap" as this:



      This has been my daily rig for over a year now.

      As to the model of your gun, its a Military and Police Model, which later became the Model 10 in recent years, around 1957, I believe. Your gun looks post-War and pre - 1955. Most notable feature missing in your photos is the screw at the top of the sideplate, or lack thereof. It does appear to lack the trigger stop. My guess is early 'Fifties vintage.

      One small difference Bob... you're carrying a single action... the OP's gun is double. If he was looking for advice on that, I'd suggest it be covered too. Nice rig by the way.

      Yeah, Bob, but yours isn't double-action.
      You have to cock yours first.
      He needs only pull the trigger.

      ...Two minds with but a single thought.

      ...but Zhurdan got there first, while I was still writing.

      My preference was the same when I carried a Model 586 or a Model 19, I wanted to keep that trigger accessable.

      And I didn't want a layer of leather between my finger and my gun. I did compromise some with a Don Hume holster which did cover part of the trigger guard. But the old Tom Threepersons rig still is my favorite.

      Strange post. Getting upset at Holly's response was odd.
