    Looking forward to getting it!

    Okay who’s got some K frame Spegels they’re gonna let me buy off them!
    Hey Craig- CONGRATULATIONS on a fantastic Model 10 acquisition!

    For those of us who don’t have access to the S&W Standard Catalog, I’m going to quote from page #205, Fourth Edition: “FBI and Michigan State Police Issue: Approx 780 2-1/2” heavy barrel versions were sold to the FBI (~500) and Michigan State Police (~280) in 10 6 and 10 8 marked models with a round butt frame. Pinned heavy barrel with a pinned serrated ramped front sight. .400” smooth trigger, with a .270” hammer spur , with a full length extractor rod. In 1998 101 units were made available to the public from Michigan Police surplus in the 3D75xxx serial range in the 10-8 variation. Scarce.”
    And FWIW, as per the SWSC, “SCARCE” refers to fewer than 900 produced…
    And listen, IMHO, Spegel grips would be neat, that that 10-8 with the original numbered RB grips trumps them in coolness…

    FWIW, while there are advantages to the C&R/COE route for folks in the PRC, C&R handguns are roster exempt. ( see (g) below )

    https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/f...ctionNum=32110

    So they can be purchased out of state like you would any rostered gun, and you do a normal DROS at your friendly local FFL.

    That’s how I bought my Walther P1.

    That's super cool info than you sir!

    So for all in the know, I was thinking about getting it reblued but maybe I shouldn't fuck with something this scarce? Thoughts?

    If you obtained it for collectibility and value- short answer is a resounding NO.
    And if it has genuine cosmetic wear and tear, that only adds to its uniqueness. If anything, certainly get it lettered by the Smith and Wesson Collectors Association and let’s see what Mr. Roy Jinks has to say about it.

    Congrats on the nice snag, Craig.

    I have 3 or 4 revolvers from them, and they have always been in the condition described or better.

    This one speaks to me - like a fixed sight Highway Patrolman.

    I've been drooling on that one too, big time. It's not going to be cheap, 13 days to go and it is already up to $755

    If you want it, I will certainly back away. I already have a bunch of N frames, you are more than welcome to this one.
