Is it just me or have those things gone through the roof in the last few months??  I can't find a used 1066 for less than a grand???  Might have to consider a Kimber or Wilson and stock up on ammo before it all disappears.

Greetings
I'm sure glad I bought one of those a few months ago!  If you look hard enough, you will find one between $500-600.  I think the 1006's are the cheapest, with the 1086 and 1046 being the most expensive.  Thats one of the reasons I bought mine, I knew the prices would rise and provide some profit down the line if that's what I wanted.  
I wouldn't worry too much about the ammo.  Double Tap has great prices if hyper velocity is what you want.   You can get the Hornady and Winchester silver-tips pretty cheap too.  
Take care

Where are you looking?  And I do like Double Tap.

I want a 10mm more than a wheel gun now I think.

Or you can get both in one with a 610

I want another 1066!

I searched through the TFL forums and emailed everyone that posted one for sale at a resonable price.  I eventually found mine for $680 shipped in great condition.
I also posted a want to buy ad and could have picked one up for $550 shipped, but there was a few scratches on it and I wanted something I could make a decent resell off of.
Hit up various forums, you will find one eventually.
Post want to buy ads.  Call gun shops all over the US.  
Take care

WTB is a good idea.

I know you probably heard this in the past, but I guess bares repeating again.  If you're 10mm shooter, learn to reload your own 10mm ammo. It is pretty simple, and if you get a single stage press, price can be downright reasonable compared to the factory loaded ammo. Cases and bullets are readily available. On top of saving money, you can load your ammo from mild to wild, and the price difference is negligible, you're talking about a a tenth of of a penny or two, if that much.

My 1006 has been a great shooter for 15 years; sturdy and reliable.

I found a 1006 for $600 NIB
Link Posted: 5/26/2008 11:04:05 AM EDT
How? Where?  There's a used 1076 on Gunbroker right now that's headed well north of that!
Link Posted: 5/26/2008 12:05:35 PM EDT
Yes, 10xx-series pistols online tend to be vastly overpriced.  1006's in particular are hardly rare guns, and $800+ for one is just dumb.

I was lucky.  A local gun store bought a 1066 and 1086 from someone who must have needed the $ more than the guns.  I bought the 1066 and paid less than $400 for it.

You just have to keep an eye out.  It sure helps if you have a friend who works in a gun store.

I'll send you $550 for the 1066 tomorrow.

Larry's in Huntsville, Al. seems to have some flavor of S&W 10mm almost every time I'm there for quite a bit less. 256-534-1000

I sold a 1086 with 4 mags and Hogue grips about 2 years ago for $625 IIRC.

The S&W Factory Store right in Springfield used to sell used and PD trade-in Smiths, but the Ware Gun Shop started whining, saying it was cutting into their sales, so they stopped.

Back about three years ago, the Factory Store had a batch of 1006's and 1076's in, all in like-new condition.  I ended up with a 1006 out of it for $475, and someone else I knew at the time bought a 1076 for $50 more.

I ended up trading mine.  I just can't stand the feel of the 10mm/.45 Smith autos.  They don't fit my hand at all.

I agree that reloading for the 10mm is the only way 99% of the shooters out there will ever be able to afford enough ammo to become competent with it.  Although I didn't like the S&W 10mm, I did buy a Gen 2.5 Glock 20 from Mark at Summit Gun Brokers about a year ago.  After a Lone Wolf barrel, I shoot reloads through it.  For a pistol that size, I shoot my G21 .45acp more often, but the G20 is a good toy.  I'm planning to take a pig with it after I heal up with my spinal surgeries.  When I do carry it for defense, I use Hornady 180gr XTP's.  They may not be the hottest out there, but it's all my dealer could get from his distributor, and we can't mail order ammo here in MA.

I just posted my 1066 for sale if you want it.
Take care

If I'm not the "winner" of the 1076 I'm bidding on on Gunbroker we will more than likely deal.  
Link Posted: 5/30/2008 4:10:48 AM EDT
Sounds good.  So far you have one other serious contender that I will talk more with this weekend.
Just send me a email/message if interested.
Take care

You don't happen to have a auction on gunbroker your self do you?  There is a Beretta under the name 10mmman.
Link Posted: 5/30/2008 5:26:20 AM EDT
Well if you're getting closer to $700 inc. mags let me know.
I'm not 10mmman. The only Beretta I won is a little .22 short semi-auto.

I bought my 1076 FBI Model for $550 in February and the price has definitely gone through the roof lately.  I am glad I got mine when I did...

I can't tell you how happy I am for you!
