First -- my caveat: I own a S&W 442, but I am very ignorant re revolvers in general. I came across a 5" or 6" Model 10 at a shop in another city last week an hour away: blued finish in good shape, otherwise cosmetically good, with thin barrel and firing pin on hammer. The unshrouded ejector rod does not have the bulbous tip of -- I am told -- pre-war guns, but a semi-bulbous rod tip more prominent than the more modern exemplars. This -- again I was told -- is the mark of a 1940s build. In any event, I was running out of time -- had to get across town to make a layaway payment on a used Kimber -- and so I was unable to do the basic checks on barrel and cylinder bores, cracks in frame, cylinder wobble, number and condition of screws, etc. First -- am I even on the right track regarding what I think or was told re this gun? Second -- if the basic checks alluded to above show no concerns -- is this a $350 gun? Please remember my ignorance re revolvers. Any info on offer would be helpful.... Thanks in advance.
