AIM is asking $300 for the Model 10.
I would love a couple of these, think is I never seem to find a deal, in my area these fetch a premium, and online who knows what you get, I got that email from Aim today and I was just looking at it.
off topic quick feedback on AIM, I only ordered from them once, I had to send in a copy of my ID, ammo order, bit odd, never had to do that before,couple months later I get a letter, their server got hacked and somebody got my info, among all their other customers, great, dam morons, now why did you need my dam ID for, anyways, they offered a free 1 year credit monitor service, nothing came of it and to the best of my knowledge, I have not had any ID theft issues yet, this was a few years back.
back on topic, here's my issue with smith, I'm clueless, never had one never shot one, the 2 pictured appear to have some skinny grips, probably uncomfortable or they look like it, I take it back, I have one, its over 100 years old the first swing open cylinder, looked it up at some point I forget the details, its in 32, skinny grips too, looks like it would fit my wife or kid better, I'm told these were police issue back in their day, they must have had smaller hands, I consider mine medium but I'm a working man I like a handle large enough to grab a hold of, not pinch it, I have a couple carry pistols, the 738 taurus for example, I do ok with it but that thing is funny just feels weird, not sure what to do with my pinky.
the other thing is I have to read up on older smiths, I cant tell them apart model 10 or 6-4??? whats the difference, production period? any significant design differences? are any models better or more desirable? thats a whole nother can of worms, than there's ruger, colt? I like to make informed purchases, and these things are not exactly cheap even used, but I'm all ears
