    My G20 is really more practical and shoots better than my 1006, but the S&W is still an excellent pistol. Mags are still available new.

    With original box, 2 mags, AND 200 rounds of ammo, 50 rounds of which are SD HP's. Shoots fantastic by the way. Couldn't be happier.

    I have a like new 1006 I bought in 1990. At that time there was a lot of rumers about it being too hot for the FBI in the original Norma loads. I was a reserve deputy sheriff at the time carrying a 1911 45. At the end of a qualification course with the 1911, I asked our firearms instructor if I could run thru the coarse again with my Smith 1006 10mm with factory Norma 170gr loads? No problem! My score was a little lower than the 1911, but high enough to pass with flying colors. I concluded the 10mm would definitely work.

    We were not authorized to carry it but I wanted to prove something for myself. Col. Cooper is a mentor of mine, having taken a Gunsite course 22 years ago.

    I just recently picked up another 1006, this will be the fourth one I've owned over the years and I don't plan to get rid of this one. Awesome guns that are accurate, will feed anything and are built like a tank.

    A couple years ago I bought some S&W 10mm mags for my Model 1076 from Midway USA, but they now show them out of stock, no backorder.:shocked:

    If the triggers on 'em are like most of the rest of the Smith 1st, 2nd, and 3rd semi-auto line, they rank with the worst in the business - long, heavy pulls make them extremely difficult to shoot fast or accurately.

    The DA pull on my was long, heavy, but the worst was it was unpredictable. I never could feel where it would break

    Right now Midway has "Out of Stck, No Backorder" on almost all their magazines. After this madness passes things will get back to normal. Me I tried to order from S&W and there site was down.:yuck:

    Believe it or not, I have three 10-round Promags for my Para P-14 that work flawlessly. I guess even a broken clock is right twice a day. :supergrin:

    How about Denzel in Training Day? He carried two in a double shoulder rig.

    And Keanu blasted those Korean gangbangers with one in Street Kings.

    And even the TX was killing future resistance leaders with one in Terminator 4.

    I just saw one of these at the pawn shop for $600.00 an hour ago which is why I came home and looked up 1006 in the search engine and saw this thread. Interesting...

    The DA and SA triggger pulls on my 1006 are pretty darn bad. Gritty with both modes.

    But I bought it used knowing full well the gun's design history, etc.

    I do like the heavy weight and the more supported chamber so that I can shoot full bore 10mm loads through it. Truth be told, my Glock 20SF shoots much better but I can't stand the feel of the Glock's fat grip in my hands, especially in rapid fire mode.

    Anyway, the gun only came with one mag and I bought four more at Smith&Wesson home page. Had to wait about a month, but they came.

    Countrygun, not many of the kids here on Glock Talk would have a clue about the Ruger XGI.

    Friend you have good taste. I bought a Witness Match in 10mm because it had a very good trigger. I had no experience with EAA but the price was to good to pass up. It is the closest I will get to a Bren 10. However it shoot so well it led to a S&W 1006 and a Kimber Eclipse Custom 1911 in 10mm. I don't shoot the 10mm much because I have all the same models already listed in 45 ACP and I load that round by the 1,000's.

    A SOCOM 16 will fit in a GI M1 carbine case. Now that is a handy little 308!
