Default New revolver

I just inherited my grandfather's s&w model 10-7. I am wondering what kind of value this gun has? Never going to sell it, just wondering... also, what aftermarket grips do you suggest?

as far as values? actual resale value in todays market, I'd say about 500-600 if you have the case, and the photos are accurate (looks like she's lived a well kept life). problem is, the current market, they aren't an ultra high demand item (which is a damn shame)

as far as grips? oooohhh... that's going to be a very personal choice. me? I'd be screaming pachmyer from the top of my lungs, but, that's only to get it to fit my hand better.

No case but the photos were taken about 10 minutes ago. It's probably only seen about 20 rounds down range. I've been in love with this gun since I was a kid. My grandfather passed in 1998, when I was 17. It will be cherished and passed down to my son!

I would leave it as is. If you haven't even shot the gun why consider changing the grips? Run a couple hundred rounds through it before you change anything.

yeah, she's a beaut. don't know why I said case. came in a dark blue thin cardboard box. but you always knew whatever was inside of that box was high quality.

Nice gun. The grips are "classic" but practically non functional. I'd go with the grips that come on all S&W's - Hogue rubber. Or Pachmayr.

The biggest improvement in grips is anything that fills in the gap between the present grip and the trigger guard- even a grip adapter. I too love Smith revolvers, that said, with so much space my middle finger takes a pounding and shooting becomes less enjoyable.
O have an old pair of Herritt wooden grips that work well.

Beautiful gun. I wouldn't change anything, especially the grips. I love that style grip and find them very comfortable to shoot.

What do you want to do w it ? HD - good to go. However, if you are looking to add it to range - there is a gunsmith was can add white outline rear sight and a red ramp front. This can be done as well. It cost approx $300.

It all depends on what you want to do ?

First thing I w change is the grip. Save the orig for posterity, if you don't like a hand filling Pachmyr, there are plenty of custom wood grips available.

I don't want to make any permanent changes to the gun. I was just thinking of changing the grips to make it more comfortable in the hand. Thanks for the comments, I am leaning towards the rubber hogue grips.
