I am looking at getting one of these. At $269 delivered it seems too good to pass up. Bud's a is good shop but everyone always posts the pics of their best examples.
So has anyone pick one up already. It looks like they 4" round and square butts. Anyone have pics? What is your preference in terms of round or square?

I picked up a dandy, nearly 98 per center S&W model 10, 4" tapered barrel,
square butt model 10-5 circa 1963 from my employer; (NOT from Bud's)
for only $200~! Its so darn nice, I have made it a "SAFE QUEEN"~! ;)
BTW, I prefer "square butt's" on S&W guns (he-he-he)~!

There won't be anymore 3" ones like this (at least for a while) and I have yet to master getting a decent pic of any of my guns, but the Models 10 Smiths at Bud's are holster worn, and have a few nicks and bangs but for the money you are getting a gun that has been shot a little and carried a lot.
The guns I looked at have had a smooth action, and the lock up has been tight.
I prefer the round butt guns myself, but that's just my opinion.
