Out of the Closet – 10-6 Update

There are times that I get so far behind with this blog stuff – I almost have to speed up to stop. Getting this update posted this late is not completely my fault.

Rough – Tough Shape – but it shot so well. Took a while to get a “deal” put together that satisfied everybody – then the cerakote job took way longer than was anticipated ( the guy got busy as can be – as a capitalist I can appreciate that! ) – and then get it in my schedule to go and shoot it – and here we are 18 months down the road from start to finish.

I believe the end result was well worth the wait!!

Reused the grips that came with it – scrubbed them with a nylon brush and Hoppes – then really hot water – nylon brush – and dish soap – now I’ll have to look around and find another “back burner” project – LOL!!

10 yards – 158 grain RNP ( round nose plated ) standard pressure – double action – finally settled down on the last round out of the first cylinder – the next 6 laid right in – Sweet old Model 10 – nothing else quite like them. Originally published on thebrucesite October 18, 2019
