SHS-47: Smith & Wesson Pre-Model 10

What we are looking at on this episode of the Second Hand Showcase is an oldie but a goodie. A model 10 before there were Model 10’s. This gun is calling me. I once took a revolver class with a very, very similarly spec’d out gun (borrowed). And I dominated the field. 

It was at that moment when I figured out, “Self, you might be pretty good at this wheel-gun thing? You need to buy this gun”. Unfortunately the gun revolver in hand was not for sale. So I have been on the hunt ever since. 

But here’s the problem: The gun I am looking for had a bobbed hammer. I really liked that. Shooter’s Supply Shop kinda cringed when I mentioned wanting to bob this hammer. 

So…I am trying to hold off. Somebody buy this gat, and save it from my Bubba hands! 

The specs:

  • Model: Pre-Model 10. Aka…M&P or Hand Ejector?
