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.
