View Full Version : Govt. bought me a mod 10...

May 11, 2008, 06:23
Got my extra tax rebate Friday, so I took my 686 to the smith yesterday for a trigger job, and to have a fiber optic sight installed, and they just happened to have a mod 10 in the case. Well, I wasn't planning on another purchase for a while, but, I've been wanting one for some time now, and well, that mod 10 followed me home.

The govt. wants us to circulate that money into the economy, so I did.

Excellent job, keep that economy moving, and keep your local gun shop in business:bow:

I don't think the House Speaker spends much time on "The Files".
Send Mrs. P. a note and tell her "Thanks".

Your not helping,,,your supposed to spend it on crappy junk made overseas,,,preferably China.

Mortgages or model 10s?

Is $389 a good price on a Model 10 in about 90% condition? Fun shop has one and for a 1911 guy, that gun felt nice in the hand.

Maybe a little high, but it's hard to find one in 90% condition any more, and the prices are higher.

Once you get used to the revolver trigger, you will really love it-IMO, one of the great American service handguns, like the 1911 or the Colt SAA.

I love Model 10s. I have a couple: two 2"s, a 3", and a 4". Gotta say, I love the 3" the best. It'll be my carry gun when I'm old enough. Bobbed the hammer, slick action job. Aluminum Tyler-T grip rounds it out.

What length barrel did you get?

Edited to add: Eh, $389 is a tidge on the steep side, but it'll do you no good to complain now. I built up my 4" with spare parts that my father had (free) and a frame and barrel I bought off of gunbroker for $35. I needed a few small parts; the total cost was like $47 to build it.

I bought my 3" in 98-99% for $200 from a buddy. He only shot it maybe 50 times and kept it in the safe. I'd drop $375 for a good condition 3" any day of the week. The 2"s are a little more common and can be had for $250-300 usually, same goes for 4"s.

Got the 4" barrel, and finally had time to go shoot it last weekend, the stock trigger is slick and smooth, a big difference over my 686. Wish I had bought one sooner, wouldn't hesitate to buy another with a 2" barrel for carry.
