A friend of mine has his heart set on a S&W Model 10. However, he let one slip through his fingers. Waited too long and it got sold out from under him. He's beginning to expand his search a little. I want to be able to recommend some other options to him that handle similarly. One things he's sure of is a 3" barrel. I'm not a revolver guy and don't keep up with whats out there much. I know the SP101 has a reputation for being a great smaller revolver, but I can't compare it with any knowledge. They look similar to my eye, but I may as well be looking at rocket ships, for all I know about wheelguns.
