    Help ID Model 10-5

    I have a Model 10-5, Nickel, 4" barrel. SN 2D78XXX. I bought it in the mid 80s. Near perfect condition. Not a single scratch on frame or grips. I've never put a shell through it. I'm wondering when it was manufactured. And what it might be worth. I also have the original box and all brochures, literature, and the original, unused, cleaning brush. Not allowed to post pics yet.

    The Smith & Wesson factory has an historian. For a fee you can write to the factory; and they'll research the records on the gun. In order to find out the current value you're going to have to research firearm auction sites like: GunBroker, and AuctionArms, and GunsAmerica. Around here, $700 to $800 would not be unreasonable for what you're selling - Especially with the original box and papers.

    If, however, you purchased the gun in the mid 80's then it was probably shipped from the factory well within the previous 3 years. (I don't think that's worth paying $50.00 to find out.)

    for what it's worth, I was looking for model 10 info a few days ago and found
    reference, The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, 3rd Edition
    model 10 section shows 3 model changes in 1962 but does not list months - these included 10-4, 10-5, and 10-6
    the serial number section lists the model 10 with range 2D00001 - 2D80000 as 1977

    A 4' nickel with box, tools and papers sells for $500.00-$650.00 in my area.
