    Earlier this year I traded for an S&W 15-4 which just needed some clean up and has the best trigger I've ever shot. It also is very accurate.

    Someone offered up a 10-6 and I'm tempted to buy it but was wondering if the trigger will be anything like the 15-4. I don't know what year the 10-6 was made.

    It's a bit of a drive so I'd appreciate anyone's experience with both before I decide to head out.

    All my S&W revolvers (I own twelve of them) have similar triggers, regardless of whether made in the 50's or the 00's. S&W is and always has been renown for their triggers. My two cents is that it is a safe bet that the trigger on the M10 is at least decent.

    I love my 10-6 heavy barrel. It has a good trigger, it shoots to point of aim with any reasonable load, and is accurate. I have Smiths with better triggers, but not a great deal better, unless they have been worked on, like my 14-3 & 14-5. Oh, and my 586. :)

    Well, the internal mechanics are the same, so in theory they should be identical. In reality there is always a little variance. All of my S&W K Frames have similar trigger pulls, but there are subtle differences. It's hard to say which are the best in my collection (maybe my 4" 15-3 though), they are just different.

    I've got a 15 and a 10 (I forget the dash designation on each; I know the 15 is at least 25 years old; the 10 is 13 years old). Triggers are about the same. What is different is the 15 has a standard barrel and the 10 a bull barrel. The weight might effect the perceived trigger pull, especially SA, with the model 10. Just relax the wrist a bit and the barrel weight adds pressure to the trigger finger.

    You won't be sorry if you add a model 10 to your stable.

    My 15 and my 10 feel about the same, though my 15 is a bit "tighter" as it hasn't been shot.

    Just get 'em both and be done with it. :)

    However...I've got two 15's and two 10's. The triggers are better on both 15's but the two 10's are still in more or less LNIB condition.

    I'd go with the 15's just for the adjustable sights. The two I have are great shooters. They don't call them "Masterpieces" for nothing.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll see what kind of deal I can work on the 10.

    Any Kframe can have a fantastic trigger. Any of them should have a good trigger. If you've got the money, add the 10.

    I was a little too late to pick up this one. Thanks for your input.
