Just got this the other day, and it was exactly as described. Had a bit of bluing removed, but the timing, fit and lock up was PERFECT. It functioned as if it had just been delivered by the factory after being built. And did I mention when I broke it down to it's componant parts, it appears as if it had never been fired. There were no circle type scratches on the cyclender showing it had been rotated, no powder or copper scraps anywhere on the weapon, the blast impressions usually found inside the cylender from fired rounds were not present. Accuracy was 2.249" at 31ft using match grade ammo. It has now been sent off to S&W for re-bluing and I have fitted it with S&W wooden, K frame square butt competition wood grips. At the range I was offered 400 cash for it. No dice as 3" Model 10's are hard to find.

Given the ambiguity of the origin of this revolver in the description I was a little skeptical but based on price and my previous experience with Bud's (have bought _8 guns in the past year, 3 used) I wend ahead and placed my order. My initial plan was to perhaps have the gun re-finished. It arrived at my FFL by the end of the second business day. When I picked it up today I was very pleased - although it was very, very dirty, it locked up tight, exhibited no end-shake, rust was minimal was and largely contained to the back strap surface AND it had the original S&W grips. Got it home, removed the grips and spent some quality time with my Flitz and then Ren Wax. The end result is beautiful - this gun is mechanically sound, cosmetically excellent but with enough "character" that re-finishing is the out of the question. This firearm exemplifies the quality S&W revolvers are known for - perfect balance, unbelievable trigger and among one of the most aesthetically pleasing designs that exists in this period revolver. A keeper! Wish I'd gotten two!

I bought a police trade in S&W Model 10-5. It had some holster wear but the action was very tight. It appears that i was carried alot but hardly shot. I got a great deal...THANK YOU!

Great purchase! Gun arrived - exactly as advertised - and very fast service. Fired only 24 rounds, but very pleased with the accuracy for a 3" bbl.

Got my gun quick and in great condition. Factory grips, no rust, and dang cheap compared to other Model 10s. Glad I jumped on this in time.

RESPONSE BY BUDS: The number on the yolk is an assembly number and has no reference to the serial number. Adding to my previous review today, serial number on butt strap doesn't match number on yoke.
