    Wound up with this Model 10 in a trade earlier this morning, seems very lightly used. S/N C502xxx.

    It was boot on a piece of antique furniture. I think we both were happy with the trade, so it worked out well.

    A snub Model 10 or a Detective Special
    is always a good choice.

    Cool! :thumbup:

    When both parties leave a trade completely happy with the outcome, an angel gets her wings :).

    Let us know how it shoots for you when you get a chance.

    Stay safe.

    C502xxx dates to 1961-62 in case you didn’t already know. My high school years! :thumbup:

    Thanks, one of the things I was wondering. The gun was pretty dirty and needed some oil, but it cleaned up very well, it looks virtually new now. I know that the couple inherited it and are most definitely not gun people, I believe they just wanted it gone.

    Just picked up a mod 60 in stainless this week. It has after market grips that look good, but suck to shoot.

    Throw a BK Grip adapter on it for $25 and it will feel better.

    I have a 2" Model 10 from 1961 or so. It was a LE turn-in.

    I really, really like it. The trigger is way better than a j-frame and it is very accurate for a snub with fixed sights.

    Congratulations!

    These were located in another drawer in the same room where the revolver was located, wonder if they were bought with the gun. None are missing from the box.

    I would guess “Yes”. I wouldn’t shoot them, not that there should be a problem with that, but I would bet some Collector would love to get their hands on that box, especially full of cartridges.
    I have no idea what it would be worth.

    I think so too. Didn't take but a minute to find this, the box appears to be from the era of 1946-1960, so it's a definite possibility.

    I recently acquired a 2" '51 HE in .32 and I have to agree, that trigger on these pre-J frames are so smooth and light.
