As mentioned in another post my father had a gun stolen and he needs to replace it , He has this S&W 38 mod 10-5 and we were wondering if its worth any thing. well any thing making it worth getting rid of. he would like to trade it orsale it and put the money towards a very small and light wieght 38 revolver.
This gun has some light pitting and we dont know any thing about it or how old it is.
he aquired it from his father in law when he passed away.
and is there any way I can find out when it was manufactured?

I looked up the M10-5 in my Smith and Wesson book and it said this gun was produced in 1962.
Buy the picture it is estimated to be worth $160 to$200.

Retail will be a bit more than $200, maybe $250 as this gun appears to be in good shape. Personally, I wouldn't sell it as it belong to an older family member, why not pass it along down the family tree?

These guns make great nightstand guns for females & males alike.

Thanks for the info guys, Were not sure what were going to do with the gun, and as far as it belonging to a family member we have no personal attachment to it (its a long story) so we would rather get something one of us will use.
And for a 1962 date of manufacture this gun does look good, The pitting is hard to see with the naked eye I was supprised to see it show up in the photos, but my 5mp camera on micro zoom shows a lot of stuff you cant see by just looking at it. 160 to 200 sounds good to me.
