    Here’s one I just picked up yesterday.

    The serial dates it to 1967. It shows little sign of shooting and just a small sign of carrying. I thought the PC grips were not factory because based on the serial, it should have a diamond around the screw. Turns out they are stamped with the serial number so they are factory. Looks like it hung around the factory during the ‘68 diamond transition.

    Somebody was inside. The middle picture shows the cover with a couple of nicks near the hammer on the cover.

    Get a spring kit and replace them. It'll make a good shooter.

    Nice piece. While I need another wheelgun, (or any other gun right now), like I need another toe, if I were to encounter a Model 10 like yours or one with a 4" bull barrel, it's coming home with me.
