    I was able to pick up these two old war horses recently. The model 10-6 is from 1968 and the model 15-4 dates 1985. Both have a few battle scars but I got them to shoot and I can do that without worry. How do you like them. :supergrin:

    I like them a lot!
    I think that model 15 is the best .38 ever made, even though I personally prefer model 10 with 4" HB.
    The 10-6 must be 5" barrel and I can tell You that it's very accurate gun.
    Picture from yesterday, something like 6 yards (not really sure as I'm a metric guy and the target was set between 5 and 7 meters away from the firing line) - rapid fire with one fast reload.

    I agree the 15 is a great gun but I want the Model 10 with a HB. They will serve you well I am sure.

    Nestor, yes the Model 10 is a 5" barrel gun. I love the diamond grips on it. Your target looks pretty good..I will try to do the same.:wavey:
    The action on both of them is really smooth. Look forward to putting some rounds down range.

    Congratulations. Two great revolvers you got there. I really like those diamond magna's. :supergrin:

    I like the Model 15 better myself, but it's close. When it comes to the Model 10, I like tapered standard barrels. Funny, now that I think of it. I say I like the 15 better, but I've got a lot more M&P/Model 10's. I just keep tripping over them I guess.

    I like the grips on the Model 10 but man the Model 15 with the Hogues fit my hand perfect. I don't have to re position my hand at all to cock the hammer and fire. Don't believe I will change the grips on it. :cool:
