Well, not really old, just '69-'70

Once lived a life as a sidearm with the "Metropolitan Police Department, Washington, DC".

Fantastic trigger

Round butt and skinny barrel, great combo. Congratulations.

"Character" guns in great shape are more than "semi" cool!

Could the DC mean department of corrections, as well?

Early consensus on the Smith forum is Metro, DC.

I sure don't know. :embarassed:

Nice model 10! It's always cool when they have some history tied to them. Congrats!

Yea, DC calls it's police force the "Metropolitian Police Department". It's almost certainly Washington DC.

Very nice Model 10. I like the square butt better myself, but I sure wouldn't turn my nose up at a RB.

What is it? A 10-5?

Then that would make the "P" pretty hard to explain.

Skinny barrel!!! I dig it.

I also like the tapered barrels on K frames.

I remember when these revolvers were highly sought after for PPC revolvers. Where has the time gone? I have a 1989 G17, and I feel a little behind-the-times!

I have a 1986 Glock that was bought in 1988. Apparently it wasn't Glock Perfection back then because they're up to Generation 4 now.:crying:

I had a snub-nosed Model 10 at one time. Then I sold it. That was years ago and I still regret it. You have a great gun.

Was it designated by S&W as a model 10-5?

And were they shipped to the LE agencies in individual boxes?
