  1. Tucker gun leather makes a really nice leather holster. You can use 4506 for size reference if 1006 is not listed. Kramer leather is also excellent. I have both of the listed holsters.
  2. I never cared for the Hogue grips. S&W made a curved backstrap Delrin grip for the 4506 & 10mm series. The FBI palm swell grips are no longer available from what I hear. Glad I purchased 4-5 pair before they went out of production.
  3. I have a few 10mm also 3 1006 3 1026 2 1046 3 1066 4 1076 1 FBI 1 1086 1 Glock #20 1 Glock #29 1 S&W 610 4"
  4. For the S&W 10 series you can substitute for the 5" series use 4506 the 4 1/4 the 4566 will work. Kramer will make a holster for the 10's. I have a few kydex also. quote name='dj454' date='November 24th 2012 3:25 PM' post='2060703'] I picked up a Wild Bills paddle holster today for the 1086. The Sig P220 holster fits perfectly. I am very happy with it. Now I know if I ever find a 1076 I can find a holster I like.
  5. I thought that the VSP guns were all marked VSP. Did they have any that did not have any markings??
  6. I would get a new spring. The 1006 is a great gun. I have four of them. If you still don't like it someone on the forum will take if off your hands.
  7. Agree with shadow, I have an FBI 1076 and three civilian models. There is really no difference between any of the guns. I paid 375 for my FBI but 750-800 would be a fir price for the gun.
  8. I have purchased the mag followers and springs from S&W. It is a hit & miss if they have them in stock.
  9. The yellow followers were the original. The white one replaced them. I have both and they work fine.
  10. This was more common with the 1006. I have not heard of the 1076 having this combination. Check with the factory or have the gun lettered. This will show how the gun was configured when it was produced. My guess they had extra blued parts.
  11. I really like the 10 series S&W's. I have 13 now and am working a line on another FBI 1076. My favorite caliber to load and shoot. Many of my collection were not shot much at all. I assume that the high cost of ammo kept alot of these guns from being shot much.
  12. The only way to confirm is a letter from S&W, if you have the blue box it may say FBI on it as mine does. THe cross checkering is a good indicator but not a sure thing. Mag disconnect also does not confirm FBI either.
  13. I was going to say its worth double the asking price,,,buy buy buy you won't have any regrets.
  14. One of my 1076's and 1026 did not have the dots under the decocker but had the mod. Call the factory they will know.
  15. Smith & Wesson makes a nice holster, and in Kydex blade-tech. I carry a 1076 with blade tech holster. The 4506 will work as a reference for buying. They are very close in size.
  16. I had the factory install new sights on my 1076. The gun was there for the recall and I had it done at the same time.
  17. I have both, 1076 FBI and the regular 1076. I carry the standard model. Yes, 100 bucks more is no big deal. Honestly I can't see or feel any difference between the two versions. The FBI model will fire with magazine removed and the front of the grip panel is cross checked pattern. My FBI has tritium night sights although dim.
  18. I paid 1200 for one like new with the original box. My guess 1200-1500 they are rare..
  19. Both of my 1046's and my 1086 have silver,stainless hammer and trigger,,,the 1046 listed on gunbroker has a blue hammer and trigger. It is possible that they used odd parts to finish the small run on the 1046.
  20. I have compared all my 1076's I have 4 total,,,,,,Honestly I can't see a difference in action, fit looks anything,,,,they all feel the same to me. They are not worth the higher prices they are getting,,,, I had tritium sights installed byS&W when the gun was there for safety recall. By the way they did not put the double dot under the decock lever,, (same on my 1026).. I am thinking I meght send the 1076 back to the performance center for action and throat polishing.. They claim 1 week turnaround. Might do this in the next couple of months.. SHADOW how did the grips work out for you?????
  21. As I recall there may have been 1or 2 1076's on gunbroker last year. I don't recall if they had letters but they were claimed to be FBI guns. I have a lettered FBI and 3 regular 1076's. Honestly I don't see all the hype. I carry a regular 1076 as my daily carry gun.
  22. THe 1006 and 1076 are excellent guns,,,I have both,,I carry the 1076 as it is a bit shorter 4 1/4. The 1006 is a 5". Both guns have the the same grip size and all the S&W 10's use the same magazine. The 1006 is the most produced gun in the series with approx 29K made. The 1076 is around 13K produced. All the S&W's are somewhat heavy as they are all steel, no alloy. They are built like tanks and take whatever round to choose. I am not familiar with a witness to compare size.
  23. 175 grn silvertips in my 1076, my daily carry gun
