Re: S&W 10 MP
I take it you're also known as WheelHead on MDS. Like we told you there this is going to be difficult to find, and in my opinion you're probably going to be better off going with a Colt. Both S&W and Colt make a great product, but from the guns I own and have shot Colt will have the better trigger (at least in the era you're talking about) if you can adapt to pulling the lever back to release the cylinder. You'll also have much better luck finding a 6-shot Colt D-frame with a snub barrel than you would trying to find one of the rare (read: collectors' items) snub barrel Model 10s. Colt made the Detective Special and Banker Special as well snub versions of both the Police Positive and Police Positive Special, and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. During that timeframe Colt was making far more 6-shot snubs than S&W. Be ready to pay the price for a Colt but you also won't be disappointed, they don't command that much cash for no reason.
I'm waiting for another Colt to pop up at my local shop, I'm on their call list every time they get a used Colt revolver.
Old calibers never die, they just get less powerful.
