View Full Version : Model 10 Police Trade In
I saw these online from Bud's for $269. It seems like a great deal to me. Anybody have one or have a good reason for me to pass on one?
Is there any benefit to square or round butt?

The Model 10 is a great old .38. To me the round butt vs square butt thing would be more about concealability if you were to carry it.
I got one. its CNC milled out of tool grade awesome. It will outshoot my pimped out Model 15 with basic 158 LSWC. Although the 15 runs right with if i feed it 130 FMJ. Dunno what thats about. Buy the Model 10. be happy. Tool grade awesome. :cool:
Disclaimer: I live near enough to Buds that I went in and had them lay 4 on the counter for me to choose from. This is the only revolver I own that I have NO plans to work the action over on.
Tool. Grade. Awesome.
The Kool Aid...it calls to you.
I want another one.
Forgot your round/square butt question, sorry.
Pure personal preference. Round, with finger groove grips, does conceal a little better. A 4" Model 10 aint super conconcealable. But I've done it. Cause I can. :cool:
The round butt is the one to get at least to me. Looks cool with the factory wooden stocks and the Tyler T grip of your choice.
I would love to have one of these but want one less beat up the the Bud's examples.
I'm a K frame fan, have at least ten of em.
At that price just get both.
At that price just get both.
I bought one SW-10 bull barrel about ten years ago to work on as a hobby. My wife took it to the range and upon returning informed me it was a great shooter and I'd better find another project because this one was hers. She was of course right and it is a tack driver very smooth pull and is a handsome gun. If I'd have bought two then we would both have one. Good luck.
The old M10 is a great 38. FWIW, I prefer my guns with a square butt; but they make good conversion grips if you get stuck with a round one. :cool:
I have one, it is very accurate.
I ordered one of the square butt models, it's decent on the outside but a tight action and smooth trigger. The grips are very rough, no problem, tho. Also, J&G has the 64 model for just a tick more, bobbed hammers on them. I think everyone likes model 10's, my wife pulled the same thing, mentioned above, on me. Good for her.
My co-worker just ordered one and he was really impressed on the condition for the age. He said everything locked up nice and tight and other than a little cosmetic wear you wouldn't have been able to tell it had been used. I know they are hit and miss on wear but as far as being worn out his is far from it. For the price he wishes he would have ordered two.
I don't know if you have made a desicion about purchasing the Model 10 or not. However my experience is that just this past June of 2011, I purchased a Model 10-6 with a 4" heavy barrel.
I bought it to reload the 38 special cartridge and just to have fun with at the range. What can I say, it's built like a tank, the trigger is smooth and it is an extreamly accurate gun. I can see why the boys in blue have kept this firearm at thier side for all those decades.
Thats a pretty good price, IMO, buy it you can't go wrong.
I've gotten two of 'em. Both Aussie cop guns.
The 4" -11 is flat out amazing. DA is like warm butter, as accurate at combat distances as anything I have.
