    Can anyone tell me if either are +p rated? Im pretty sure the model 10 is not but i dunno if the 64 is. I just picked up both of them from buds. It looks like the 64's sold out already. Im glad I did not set on the fence about it.

    The 64 is +P rated, as are most Model 10's. It depends on when they were made. Most Model 10's that are actualy marked "10" should be able to handle +P's; certainly any that are marked 10-5 or higher.

    The model 64 is essentially a stainless model 10.

    I would not suggest putting A LOT of +P's through a K frame .38, as it will increase wear and tear on the gun; however, practice with standard .38's with occasional +P firing should be fine.
