had a 3 inch gun that id got talked out of. I was offered the outrageous to me 1000 bucks for a gun I paid 400 for. It was a great gun and the most accurate n frame ive ever owned. Id love one again but id love one for 6 or 700 bucks not a grand. If I was still working and had a endless gun budget id bring one home even at that price.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

I like it. Heck, I like all N frames. But, I always thought the .41 magnum made more sense in a N frame revolver, especially if you handload.

Personal opinion is a good thing, and everyone is entitled to one. The hard part is separating informed opinion from someone who is just blowing hot air....

Me too Larry! The 10mm will never be what the 41 is and head spacing off of a rim rather than case mouth makes way more sense in a revolver(to me anyway). That being said it is just a personal preference thing. There are no flies on the 10mm.....it is what it is which is a fine round especially in a semi auto!

My old buddy Butch love half moon clips and 45 acp ammo in a wheel gun. He would have gone nuts for this new 10mm wheel gun.

I am a Smith fan, and the 10mm is my favorite round. But with the cost of S&W revolvers, I might go with Ruger GP100 in 10mm over the Smith for cost savings.

I have to correct myself! The half moon or full moon clips transfer the head spacing to the case rim via the clip. I knew better....just getting old and forgetful.

I'm with ya rosewood...on the GP 100. Ya won't shake any screws loose in one of those. They are a work horse. I like S&Ws too especially the pre lock 686(-4 and -5 are my favorites) but with what they cost I shoot a GP100 and a SP101.

I think in the last 5 years I have bid on a dozen of those old 686s only to have some guy with a thicker wallet out bid me. Now I am at the point where maybe I just need to be content with what I already have!

If shooting 10mm, it can still head space off the rim. The moon clips are only required if shooting 40.

That makes sense! All of the guns that I have used moon clips in were for rimless cartridges when being shot in a gun designed for for a rimmed cartridge. 45 ACP in a 45 Colt , 9mm in a 357 etc. this Smith was designed for the 10mm. I learned something new today. The old dogs and new tricks thing doesn't always apply!

I wanted one some time back, but then noticed the Ruger.... Now I'll probably just drool and get neither......

Nice gun, but a Glock (or other semi) in 10mm makes more sense to me. Lighter, more compact, larger capacity, and cheaper!

Don't get me wrong, I love revolvers, but in this caliber the semi-auto is the way to go IMO.
