View Full Version : 10-5 .38
Well I picked up an old 10-5 .38 spl today.
The finish is gone. Wanted to know what options you guys have taken to refinish. Iím thinking polishing( oh boy)
or someone recommended parkerized(spell-check) finish.
Gun is in great shape nice and tight.
Couldnít pass it up for the price
Plus itís my first revolver
Any input or experience, or how too's appreciated
The S&W 10 was my first revolver purchased also. Great shooter and a standard police sidearm for many years in the 70's- early 80's.
Talk to Bob at Accurate Plating.
They have some great finishes.
Several of my revos went there.
Black chrome was outstanding.
Should this be moved to the wheelhouse or gunsmithing ?
Im ooking for te best feed back
If you call the Smith and Wesson customer service they may be able to refinish it. I am not 100% sure if that is part of their warranty but it is worth a shot.

I purchased a 10-5, 4 in Sq Butt, while enroute to the LEO academy. I already had a M-66 ,357 mag, which was an approved firearm, and a close friend advised that they use the same grips,speedloaders,leather holsters, ammo cases, etc. I qualified with the both, carried the magnum on patrol duty. The M-10 was a service backup. Mine got a refinish job,(blued) and front site cut with an orange insert installed. IIRC, the entire work cost $125.00 making the total of cost for the revolver at $280.00.
after 14 yrs, it shows a little wear from a holster, but still shoots well, and can't be
replaced for what I have invested. Great firearm, will be passed down to my children.
