Most 4" 10's were square butt and pencil barrels [ not bull barrels as in the picture ]. I'd prefer the K frame in 357 not 38 myself.
So, the pic is incorrect or did they actually make them this way?

They were made in round butt bull barrel, not just in the same quantity as the pencil barreled model 10's with square butts. It's rather unique to see the round butt and bull barrel, looks odd with the round butt and 4" barrel. The snubs were mostly round butt as they were meant to conceal better. :thumsup

The one in my family is the traditional square butt/pencil barrel. One of my folks' home defense guns. Sits in the night stand of my former bedroom.

My issued Service Revolver was a Model ten with the rounded butt as were most I saw at the MPDC.

They also issued Colts but at the time (1969) those were older 4" bbl'd .38 Spc. and 2" to plain clothes investigators.

We had no .357s and were only permitted .38 Spc. for personal weapons which had to be Dept. approved and qualified with. Also only Enemic soft lead ammo was allowed. :thumbsdwn

Our department issue was the M-19 Combat Magnum...as a reserve deputy, had to buy my own stuff...carried a Colt Trooper MKIII, 4" blued. WILL have another some day if I find the right specimen.

Nothing, and I repeat nothing..... Shoots better than a bull barrel model 10 unless of course it's a Colt Trooper or Python.

They are natural pointers Bob. I really enjoy the model 13's and 65's in 357.

Carried a Model 13 as my undercover gun as a marine Embassy Guard PPSU Detail. Another great gun.
