From another forum I was able to buy a Rock Island Tactical II Government Model 10mm; with a 25% discount. The gun shop, in Las Vegas, shows them at gun shows and after 3-4 shows they sell them. Although considered "used" they are new in the box, some with handling marks. I got lucky, mine looks pretty good - except for RIA's huge old style logo! It comes with a fully adjustable rear sight, fiber optic front sight, ambidextrous thumb safety, and a extended magwell (secured by the two lower grip screws. I should get it to the range this week; I picked up 100 rounds of commercial reloads the other day.

The other pistol I got, to go with my S&W 10-5 Snubbie is a S&W Model 10-7 Snubbie; marked on the right side plate: Policía de Investigaciones del Perú the Peruvian version of the FBI. It was made for the Government of Peru but for some unknown reason some were never shipped to Peru. There are no import markings and it came with Pachmayr rubber wrap-a-round stocks so I need to find some Model 10 round butt wood stocks for it.

Here are some photos (no stocks on the 10-7):
