Description

SMITH & WESSON SET OF TWO (2) MATCHING BRAND NEW “OLD SCHOOL” REAL MODEL 10 COMPLETE BLUEPRINTED BUILDS BY DEFENSIVE CREATIONS! ONE SET IN THE WORLD IN THIS CONFIGURATION! HEIRLOOM/MUSEUM COLLECTIBLE OR SHOOTERS.. YOUR CALL! Defensive Creations is one of a handful of premier Gunsmiths in the country that usurps the term “Master Gunsmith”.  We discovered Dave Laubert after he built a set of Model 10 units a few years ago and set upon acquiring our own set of “as new” Model 10 pistols with hammer mounted firing pins (vs the new transfer bar system) to ship to him for premier heirloom/museum quality work. These builds took over 22 months from start to finish and there will never ever be another set!

WORK/BUILD: Took us months to find an as new set of OLD STYLE premier revolvers with hammer mounted firing pins. Big deal, why? Hammer mounted firing pins scream “quality built” and are indicative of when both S&W and Colt actually manufactured premier revolvers instead of the mass produced quality deficient units of today. These came from an older gents personal collection as shown with Smith& Wesson custom grips with the Smith&Wesson logo inlay from the factory. Includes original factory boxes with untouched owners manuals and original untouched registration/warranty cards. Yep we payed a premium to get em and shipped em to Monsieur Lambert whom subsequently tore em down to the nubs and rebuilt em; blueprinted, new springs, premier action job, shorten to 3 inch barrels with crown, slab barrels, remove all markings. Machine for new dovetail sights. Manufacture new front fiber optic sight and blend to barrel. Crane/yoke lock ball. Chamfer charge holes, trigger pull adjustment, case harden triggers and hammers and screws pins and widgets, square to round butt conversion, test fire and regulate front sight, matte blue finish. Imagine every piece refinished, hand honed, timed, rebuilt. Ze Monsieur Lambert had em for about 18 months; total time around 22 months to get done. Last set we will ever do due to the amount of time and cost of finding any as new Model 10 pistols with hammer mounted firing pins; unique one of a kind set! 

COST/BUILD: Cost of one real Model 10 with Hammer mounted firing pins, as new, custom factory grips, matching, $1300 each x 2 = $2600. Defensive Creations $1525 for smith work per pistol x 2 = $3050. Total to build a set of two and wait 20 months (ish) $5850. Wheres dealer profit? Add $700 which makes the dealer squat for their time/effort. Total $6350 for both. Last set. Ever.  Note: We sent Lambert 4 pistols total charge without shipping hither and yon for his work (on all four pistols) excluding pistol cost $5750 invoice in the pictures. Invoice does not delve into the complete itemization of work done. 

WHY MODEL 10: This paragraph is educational (and opinionated) and justifies the use of revolvers in a defensive mode! Skip it if’n you want as it has nothing to do with the value of this set! These are .38 Special six shot revolvers; the penultimate or ultimate defensive weapon of all time; depending. Note a 17 round Glock although called a defensive weapon if you cut the crap is an offensive weapon for numerous reasons and excels at such for numerous reasons such as it’s ability to lay out 18 rounds of premier 9mm with instantaneous magazine changes for the experienced operator whom can accurately fire well over 280 rounds in a minute of sustained accurate fire. Key word is is highly trained operator. I can rack and stack at the aforementioned sustained rate easily with all rounds on a 10″ target at 15 feet no issue. Can use the same pistol and hit a man sized silhouette at 200 yards on the berm of Ben Avery within 3 rounds. Yep, I’ll betcha. So why the revolver? Revolver is a pick up and shoot item which requires limited, well, actually nigh to no training which is a bad thing BUT for those with limited training and experience is a good thing.  Bad guy/gal you do not need to think about slides or a safety or a magazine or is a round chambered or is the grip safety depressed or squat. Just pull, press, jerk, slam, or do whatever to make the trigger go rearward all the way. And point. C’mon your bad guy/gal ain’t 50 yards away. Mebbee 5 feet away. Now Alex is roaring on his chatroom that you need a .357 magnum as a man stopper. Said it before but it bears worth repeating. Alex, Dorothy, and their Chairborne Chatroom Klowns are dipshits. The recoil, muzzle flash, and concussive blast of a .357 magnum makes it “uncomfortable” to shoot.. to say the least. Point being as an average humanoid you can put three .38 Special rounds on target in the same time it takes them to put one .357 on target. If’n you cannot figure out what that means please move along. Really far along. Aways off. Really far. The .38 Special is not uncomfortable to shoot; it is actually comfortable to shoot! In addition the new .38 Special loads have elevated the lethality threshold of the .38 Special to heights not imagined even a decade ago.  CorBon for example; “Penetration Testing Results: COR®BON used the protocol from the FBI’s testing procedures and achieved soft tissue penetration of 12”-18”, with reliable and consistent expansion. The recovered bullets retained 100% of the original size and weight when recovered from the test medium of 10% ballistic gelatin and shot through four layers of 10oz denim barrier. The permanent crush cavity is also considerably larger than that of a typical JHP”. Read that three times; these bullets will tear through a 40 0z denim barrier and still do their job! In addition a revolver can lay loaded in a drawer for a decade yet when picked up will go bang when the trigger is pulled or pressed or whatever you are supposed to say nowadays to show how smart you ain’t. Theoretically springs in a fully loaded semi-auto magazine can become weak over time and lead to function issues. I have never had an issue with this and as a quasi experienced operator call BS but there is a small modicum of sense behind the statement. That said these Model 10 3 inch revolvers are lightweight, have minimal recoil, and are extremely ergonomic with wondrous “pointability”. Meaning they are easier to use than a semi-auto for everyone in the world. Easier to use for everyone in the world. We have had several stashed in key locations for over 7 years and try to shoot a cylinder out of em every other year. Then load em again and let em lay. Marathon runner, crippled, old and arthritic, semi-experience, experienced these will flatten an adversary in a CQB environment as fast as a G17 in the hands of an experienced operator. These revolvers level the playing field in a close quarter threat environment.Want more? Jam a semi-auto against a CQB humanoid threat and chances are the slide will not chamber another round. You got a malfunction. Revolvers you can jam into their tummy and roll through the cylinder. How about one handed? Which is easier? You do not need training to shoot a revolver one handed off handed left or right handed. Pick it up and rock. Not so with an auto.. nuff said. Out.
