Well, I figured It's about time I reviewed this thing. Sorry for the delay. Model 10's with 3" barrels are pretty rare, so if these surplus guns become available again at this price, you better snap one up. Bud's supply of these classic Smiths will literally be gone in hours, IF NOT MINUTES!

As for the gun, it's great, but scuffed up some. This is only to be expected with police surplus. The function is excellent - everything you'd expect in the classic model 10. They replaced the original grips (on mine) with new "diamondwood" traditional S&W grips. Some people might like that, some collectors might not. I found some era appropriate grips at a gun show for 15 bucks, so no biggie. Accuracy is good, but maybe not quite what the typical 4" barrel would be. I've never found 4" K-frames to be very concealable, though, and a 3" barrel makes all the difference, in that respect.

History: My understanding is that these were surplus from the police dept. in Victoria, Australia, and the small stick-on label affixed to the frame seems to verify that. I've left the label on just for the cool factor. My gun was made about '66 or '67, according to the standard catalog. The non-original grips keep it from being a real collector's piece, but at this price, who cares? Love it. Bud's delivered promptly.

Well worth the wait! I missed buying one of these due to limited quantities while I made up my mind twice. He who hesitates is lost.

just picked it up today. Very tight lock up and the gun looked as described by buds. If you are looking for a revolver with character this is it. if you are looking for a beauty queen buy something new out of the box.

This revolver was exactly what I wanted. A good, solid, handgun in good shape...but not so good that I worry about putting scratches on it!!!

I'll order another one if Bud ever gets another shipment.............should have bought two this time....

The gun was exactly as described. Some blueing missing here, some scratches there, but overall a good solid gun. I went through all of the gun checks before accepting the transfer (cylinder play, cylinder-bore gap, timing, cylinder internal check, cocked hammer play) and it's a nice and tight piece. Is it going to win any beauty contests? NO. But you add the condition of the gun + what it was used for (LEO gun) + the 3" barrel length (not as common) + the beautiful original wood grips (classic) = you have a really cool gun that is a great deal. The gun is a beautiful piece of art in my opinion, great job BUDS.
