    I like the reviews I have read so far on the 610 revolver. I was thinking of getting one for IDPA and shooting the .40cal since it appears to shoot smoothly in this revolver(this based on review only). Can you use the same moonclips for the 10mm and .40cal or do I need to have two different kinds?

    Use same clips since they are the same case, with 10mm shortened to 40 cal originally.

    I am sending mine back to S&W this sunmmer (about July) for chamfering the cylinder to aid loading the cylinder when using LSWC reloads. The gun is drop dead accurate and is so easy to shoot even with my arthretic hands. You will love the gun.

    By the way I have had mine lightly polished and I keep her waxed with Mothers Mag Wheel wax.

    Thanks guys...it's good to see some postive responses. I appreciate the posts.

    Buds Gun shop has the 610 for $600 for the 4" model. They say that is the "delivered price." Unfortunately Bud's in currently out of stock. My local shop can get me one for $780 out the door. Has anyone come across any other decent pricing? I am thinking $600 is probably the best I will find?

    Also, can anyone recommend a good fiber optic front sight for the 610?

    They won't be able to match that price again I bet. My buddy said that the last he looked his cost had just about hit the $700 mark a week ago. I got a beautiful HIVIS (fiber optic) from Midway for about $30, don't remember exact price as I bought other items also. But dag nabit it had to have some filing due to sight had flat bottom & sides (90* angle) and I had to bevel it some. Took a file and about 5 minutes and bingo it popped right in and looked factory. I need to take a picture of the 610 with a nice soft polish or shine and the Packmyher Presentation grips, she is a beauty.

    You got a no dash model? If so you did score a hard to find model. You seldom see anything but dash 3 6.5" models for sale.

    Look what I had made for my 610's sure is sweet and not that expensive, but very handy for the range. Hold 8 clipped sets. :cool:

    I love my 610 very much. Only thing I can add to the above posts is if you reload, you can really step the 10mm up a bit with no worries in the revolver. Get one if you can.

    It's pretty nice
    I've got a 4" and a 6.5". The answer to your question depends on the situation. For hunting, I like the 6.5". I have a Sidearmor holster for it and the extra 2.5" gets about 200 fps more than the 4". For anything else, the 4". I don't have a holster for it or I would have taken a hog with it as well by now. Both have Hillary holes and I'd take a pre lock 5" in excellent shape for both of them if I could. 610's are known by S&W aficionado's to be extraordinarily accurate even for a S&W.

    Tried to find it but could not find it. What you got 3, 4, 5, 6 inch? Pre-lock or not? I'm always on the lookout for 3 or 4 inch model. Lock not a deal breaker.
