It's the Hong Kong police gun, a 10-9.
Mine is similar, though hasn't been around as long. S&W 10-8. I think it was made in the mid 80's, serial # ACP64xxxx
Between 1980 and 83 all models were transitioned to a serial number that consist of three letters followed by four numerical. Are you sure it’s not “BBT”?
Thanks! I had looked around online when i first bought the gun but didn't get it narrowed down to a specific year. Much appreciated.
I'm still debating on spending the $50 to get the letter from S&W since mine is import marked, but it might not tell me anything interesting.
There's something about a model 10 that just looks.....right. Like that's what a revolver is supposed to look like.
Yep I love my model 10, the book has some really good info
It is definitely BDT.
Ok, I’ll look again here in a sec
BBT, BDT???? Explain please.. Thank you
I found BTB. Blue tapered barrel..
Just how they did/do serial numbers
Looks like 83
I appreciate your input and photos, you got me digging in the safe for my post air conditioning cop gun.
Bad guys must have been getting tougher as time went on. The beginning of the last century .38 S&W was considered sufficient, then .38 Spl, and by the time of this one, .357. They have also gone from six to 20 rounds. I guess the next thing they will need is a holster for Ma Deuce.
This is a really nice shooting piece, it had some good trigger work done before I bought it.
No problem, I love S&W’s
What’s the serial on that one Chain?
