    Model 610

    Smith & Wesson has brought back their Model 610 10mm revolver to the delight of many wheelgun aficionados and fanboys of the “best millimeter” cartridge! It is available in either a 4″ or 6.5″ barrel for hunters, personal protection or general range fun. These revolvers should be shipping to firearm retailers at the time of this publication so we can expect to see them soon. Some of the essential specs for the Model 610 10mm can be read below:

    • 6 Round Capacity
    • 3 (Three) – 6 Round Moon Clips Included
    • Chambered for 10mm Auto – will also fire .40 S&W

    • Black Blade Interchangeable Front Sight w/ Adjustable White Outline Rear Sight
    • MSRP $969

    These revolvers (in my humble opinion) are really cool because you get the popular 10mm cartridge to play with that has seen an explosion of growth, and if you already own a .40 S&W pistol you now have a secondary option for shooting that ammunition. Smith & Wesson expanded on their excitement and the potential usefulness of the Model 610 in this Press Release statement below:

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass., (March 26, 2019) – Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced that it has reintroduced its Model 610 revolver, chambered in the powerful 10mm Auto cartridge. Well suited for handgun hunting and protection in the backcountry, the Model 610 is built on the large Smith & Wesson N-frame and is available with either a 4-inch or 6.5-inch barrel.

    Jan Mladek, General Manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands, said, ‘With the recent increase in popularity of the 10mm Auto cartridge, we felt it important to offer a 10mm revolver for personal protection and handgun hunting.  The N-frame revolver has long been a staple in big-bore revolvers, and the 10mm is a natural caliber addition to the line.’

    While Smith & Wesson might not be the 1st company as of late to chamber a revolver in 10mm, they are historically known for making some of the best revolvers on the market across the board. So for our wheelgun fans out there, is this something you would be willing to dive into? If not, is there a different 10mm revolver that you have been eyeing lately?
