    S&W M&P please stand up?

    Ok, there's this "M&P owners check in" thread over in the auto loaders forum, and several members here have either recently aquired or recently gotten ID help on their M&P revolvers. Old Fuff helped me ID my "S" prefix M&P, sn S 910xxx, as a "transitional" model. In light of all this I thought I should start a thread for the REAL M&Ps here. So lets have fun with it.

    Yeah, I don't know how many M&P threads I've opened over the past coupla weeks and been disappointed.

    We may as well make this a picture thread as well. That way there will be no mistakes.........

    Great gun that are fun to shoot. You can find them with some finish wear but good shooting condition. They are still the best value around.

    Thanks for sharing the pics Xavier & Steven. Steven that nickled '46 is beautiful.

    +1 to that. I cut my teeth on autoloaders, but decided I needed a wheelgun a few months ago. I did a little reading and decided I was gonna go with a used Model 10. My local dealer didn't have any model 10s in, but said "I have this 5" model of 1905 4th change; they became the model 10." It had some finish wear, but locked up pretty tight with only a bit of wobble. It was priced at $200 so I couldn't walk away. Now I've found out that it shoots so sweet because it's an old "long action." Despite the finish wear it's a great shooter and the price was right.

    I am a big fan of the M&P and have owned many over the years. I was an armorer for a small department and we had 15 of the Victory Models in cosmoline on a chain in the closet. I would love to have them today!

    My last M&P was sold earlier this year. I am consolidating the collection and decided the Model 19 was going to be my K frame gun. Of course if a good deal on a skinny barrel 4 incher shows up I might have to backpedal! :)

    My one of a Kind M&P a 357 magnum with a 4" pencil barrel.. I wanted a 357 M&P 4" So I had one made. I didn't really want it in stainless but that is the barrel I found first. I might have it bead blasted and black chromed or Parkerized. That will take the shine off of it. It now has target trigger and hammer, and I am working on the grips, It has magna's and a T grip adapter right now. [​IMG]

    This is the only one that I have, should date to the late 20's, shoots to point of aim and very accurate

    Real M&P's

    I generally think of the pre-model numbered guns as M&P's. But, since the newer ones say "Military and Police" on the boxes, I'll show a couple.

    Victory Model that beloged to my deceased father-in-law...he wasa WWII Navy bomber pilot.

    S&W M&P Pre-Model 10

    [​IMG]

    This one is a post war M&P, AKA a Pre-Model 10.
    I picked it up with the original grips and a holster for $89.

    Here's a 1941 in 38 S&W that was sent to serve with the British under Lend Lease. It's obviously "full of history" ( ie. well used and abused) with lots of wear, dings and nicks in it's "classic patina finish", but is still tight and shoots great.

    Every once in a while I get the urge to replace the stocks and have it reparkerized. It's not like it's collectable in that caliber.

    Here's one made in 1951, same as me. Wish I still looked as good. It is very accurate, and a lot of fun to shoot.

    This is a M10-5 from 1975. A bit younger than some of the others in this thread but just as elegantly effective.

    1946 2" M&P, liberated from a pawn shop for $200. One of the smoothest guns I own.

    Ohh, we'll count it in proco. It's way more real M&P than those plastic things masquerading as such nowadays

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I suspect Miss Myra's gun is the most valuable in the collection..

    A nice story about a great little lady!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I must admit, I don't know much about M&P revolvers. Are they still made? If not, when were they discontinued?


    I sure like how they look! :)

    I'm sure Old Fuff or Xavier, or one of the experts will be along shortly to give you a much better answer, but here's the short answer. The S&W Model of 1905 "Hand Ejector" is what's commonly known as the M&P. They became the Model 10 when S&W switched to model numbers on their revolvers in 1950 something. Model 10s are still shown on the S&W website and as far as I know are still being made.

    ugaarguy is correct. The M&P became the Model 10 in 1957. As the Model 10 it is still being produced by Smith & Wesson. Only a few firearms have enjoyed longer production runs, namely the Winchester 1894. The Model of 1905 4th Change may soon surpass it.
    Here are two Model 10-5s.
