    How do the S&W revolvers and semi-autos hold up to extensive use?

    How many rounds through your S&W 10 mm pistols?

    The 10xx-series Smiths are built like tanks. My old 1066 was a LEO trade-in and had a good round count through it by the time I got it, and it never missed a beat.

    S&W 10mm 1076 ...


    ... about 3800+ rounds and still going strong.

    American made.

    Clean stainless steel lines.

    Flat and concealable.

    Reliable.

    Durable.

    Very accurate.

    Holds 9+1 of no B.S. 10mm stopping-power. :D

    :cool:

    I have a 41 Magnum and I want a Smith 58.
    I guess I am just drawn to dead cartridges. :neener:

    My Smith 1006 is built like a tank, but with more elegant lines and manners... ;)

    I had a 1076, that I put about 2500 rounds through before I sold it to a buddy. I still see it now & then. I'd guess it's seen about 4000+ rounds so far.

    Honestly, a Smith 10mm is on my list of stuff to get, just haven't got around to it yet.
    Great gun, you won't be dissappointed.

    I like nuggies. :p :neener:

    In my opinion the S&W 10xx guns are some of the most underrated handguns out there. They're extremely well built and durable and do a great job of handling the 10mm cartridge.

    Thanks for your responses guys. Any advice on which of the S&W semi autos is best for target and home defense?

    You'll shoot your eye out!

    There was a used one over at Woodsmens for $300ish.

    Brent painted it camo and was shooting deer with it last time I talked to him. I would assume that the camo paint would come off with a little effort, they are all stainless as far as I know. Might be worth looking into.

    My vote would be the 1066 for home defense and the 1006 for target. If I had to pick just one it would be the 1066. I have both and really like them. The reason I would pick the 1066 over the 1006 is it's lighter and better balanced (for me). I find the 1006 a little nose heavy. YMMV

    1086

    Well, I'm mainly a revolver guy, but I do have one 10mm. It's a 1086 (DAO) that I sold a G20 to buy. I don't think I'll be getting rid of it anytime soon.

    I agree with everyone else here about the 10xx series.
