Pair of S&W 10s

Love to shoot 10 mm and the 3rd Gen. 20 SF has performed very well, as expected. But i wanted other options besides the 20, and now the search for a S&W 10xx series pistol is over. Took posession of a 1006 over the weekend, thanks to a gentleman who was willing to trade it for a very nice Smith revolver. It joins its 10 mm wheelgun cousin the 610-2 which, after a two year search, i had gotten several months ago through another trade.
I have yet to shoot the 1006, but have shot factory loads with the 610. The stout N-frame wants more than the mild factory stuff. Have been considering getting into reloading to roll some hotter loads, but find it hard to invest in it because of the low volume of shooting i do....for now...that will change after retirement.

Once you've run two or three mags stuffed with full-throttle 10mm ammo through any of Smith's 10XX-series pistols, it's hard not to really like them. It's harder still not to really want one for your collection when they pop up for sale.

Of mine, I love shooting the 1006 with near-max 200gn reloads. Some years back I had an oversized, 5" Bar-Sto barrel hand-fitted to it, just to save wear on the factory tube. Added one of Wolff's XP recoil springs. But the fixed Novaks are dead-on with either barrel. Smooth-shooting and accurate.

Obligatory (old) pic:

S&W 1006.
