Our Assessment: For more than 150 years, Smith & Wesson has been producing some of the finest revolvers in the world.

The semi-automatic handgun slowly took the place of most of these purposes, but there’s still something about a revolver that keeps shooters coming back. This Smith revolver allows you to use the semi-automatic 10mm cartridge in a fine quality revolver, sharing ammunition with a Smith 1006, Colt Delta Elite, Glock 20 or other 10mm semi-auto pistol. Using moon clips, you can also use .40 S&W, allowing this revolver to use two different popular semi-automatic cartridges! Not content with being chambered in 10mm, best mm, this revolver is in Excellent condition with 97% of its finish, a bright bore, strong mechanics and comes with moonclips to get you started. For the 10mm enthusiast or the Smith & Wesson collector, this is a great find. Please see our photos and good luck!
