James, of Hell in a Handbasket, has written a post about his “new” S&W Model 10 he recently purchased.

What a great photo :) Full sized version here.

This revolver is at least 50 years old. As James pointed out, it will still be useful in another 50 years time. My great-grandfathers rifles are still floating around my family. This is one of the things I love about firearms. When you buy one you know it will outlive yourself if you look after it. Compared to ipods ( I have bought two ipods in the last 3-4 years and am about to purchase a third), cell phones, cars etc. firearms are really cheap when you consider how long they last.

    Very true, and I don’t even own an iPod. I hope to find a Model 10 in good condition some day. I don’t most of the current revolvers in the market today.

    Great piece. Can you tell me if the current Model 10 offered by S&W is the “square butt” or “round butt”? S&W couldn’t tell me!
