M&P pre-model 10 from the '50's.
I have the twin to that one. Identical gun, box, everything
Cocked & Locked that is a beautiful revolver. I’ve thought about trying to find some stags for mine. Outstanding
Once again C&L delivers lol!
The Model 10-7 in action. Again, this is one of the police turn in beater he was selling for $249.00. Instead of mowing like I should have, I grabbed the revolver and a handful of reloads. So relaxing!!
Model 10-5, I bought in 2006 ish at a gun show for $250 https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?attachments/unlocked-jpg.44287/
Thanks! Go for it!
Due to this awesome thread (thx to everybody) the model 10 WILL be my next revolver!! I can not wait!
My model 10-6
What’s up with the “plum” or purplish tint on some I see? Bluing changed with age/ certain chemicals?
I see this on Makarov PM parts, mostly the hammer and safety.
Here is a Model 10-5 I bought around 2005 for $175 at a pawn shop, It's the the one on bottom.
As joneb noted, I have a Russian Makarov from the late 80's. It has turned plum colored in a couple of spots.
The loading gate on my Ruger Blackhawk 357 from the mid 70's has that coloration also.
I think those are my only two with the plum color. I like the look.
Only found that out when I was searching for the picture - never knew.
It is the result of the temperature of the hot bluing bath being too high. It can also be caused by different metal properties used on various parts of the gun.
That's pretty much what HK said when I asked them about the plum coloring on my P7. They also added that it could also be caused by the bluing solution being of a different consistency or the heat treatment of the metal itself...or it could be a combination of all of the above!
I like it.
Got a new (to me) set of grips in for the Model 10-5 today, so of course, I had to try them out!
This one appears to have been carried much, shot very little, and it's in much nicer condition than the 10-7 pictured above.
S&W 10-5 with image cropping suitable of such a specimen. I would really love to have this barrel taken down to 3" with a round butt conversion but haven't contacted anyone about getting the work done. I can't stand shooting with the factory grips and don't understand how anyone does, but rubber just doesn't look the part.
@jdavis123 yours is a bit prettier than mine.
10-6 Heavy Barrel. NY Dept of Corrections trade in.
She just got a new BK grip adapter today. Haven't shot it with the adapter yet but much better grip when dry firing.
Because dbmjr1 hasn't chimed in yet.
And, if you didn't follow his thread - no decent Model 10s were harmed in this project.
You are welcome!
I like that Model 10 if it had a round butt.
Sure, but then there'd be less surface for the frosting color.
