Our Assessment: For more than a century and a half, Smith & Wesson has been producing some of the finest revolvers in the world. For much of that history, revolvers were the best handgun for just about any purpose, hunting, defense, target shooting, law enforcement and military sidearms. 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, the best mm, this revolver is in Fine condition with 95% of its finish, a bright bore, strong mechanics and comes with its original box. For the 10mm enthusiast or the Smith & Wesson collector, this is a great find. Please see our photos and good luck!
Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
