    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.

    Cool Smiths, can't wrong with either really.
     
  7. 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:
