    Well, not really old, just '69-'70

    Once lived a life as a sidearm with the "Metropolitan Police Department, Washington, DC".

    Fantastic trigger

    "Character" guns in great shape are more than "semi" cool!

    Could the DC mean department of corrections, as well?

    Thanks

    Early consensus on the Smith forum is Metro, DC.

    Yea, DC calls it's police force the "Metropolitian Police Department". It's almost certainly Washington DC.

    Very nice Model 10. I like the square butt better myself, but I sure wouldn't turn my nose up at a RB.

    What is it? A 10-5?

    Then that would make the "P" pretty hard to explain.
