I got this grips for one of them . lets see how it goes.
300-dollar gun tops.
WELL...I have them for sale for mere -price of $400.00 each . with new grips and cleaned up .
OK, I guess I'll jump in again, if just to share one of my most beloved 'Fighting Revolvers'.
[ Remember, I did say just one of them as I do have a few equally as loved examples. ]
The one I'm referring to is what I call my 'regretfully purchased' old time 'shooter'. It's a not too old S&W M-64-5, 4" H.B., round Butt, Factory DAO .38 Spl. The regret aspect enters the picture due to the circumstances of when & why I purchased it in the first place. Well, at the time, early 1990's we issued an almost exact Model, except for ours being Square Butt, & being SA / DA, not DAO.
The LGS I frequented had quite a few very interesting S&W 'Contract Models', of which I always just loved ! As I looked around, I also saw an 5" Std Bbl, M-10, . 38 Spl, with Factory Lanyard Loop & Mel's 'RNWMP'. Ahhh Boy, an NIB Canadian Mountie issue weapon, & with a fair price !!
BUT, although that was one of my all time favorites, I JUST HAD to pass it up for the M-64 DAO !! I hated myself, but I did have my reasons. About a month prior, I had been Board selected to be our Dept's Armorer, & as soon as I came across this 4" HB, Rd Butt, DAO Model I absolutely knew it simply had to be our next Duty Revolver. So, I bought it of course, both as my P.O.W., & as an 'Sample Type' to show my highers. st
I still have it, & I truly love the way it points & fired so naturally for me, which of course is most likely due to my having been trained on this style from day 1. So, even as much as I love my DAO 64, every single time I see it I recall my 'Missing Mountie' !! THANKS for 'listening' Gents !
North AL market. M10s in my area are wicked high. 6-8 hundred dollars for an average revolver. I did pick up a M64 (stainless version) DOC police trade in a couple of years ago for less than 300. Has an agency control number electro-penciled number on the frame, but is a great shooter.
