S&W 610 in 10mm
« on: November 27, 2015, 01:13:25 PM »
I know that this may have been tried but we need to contact S&W in mass. Here is the if, if everyone on here would contact S&W requesting a new 610 and if this could be spread to the other 10mm forums and facebook pages then we could really generate some interest and hopefully a market for S&W to produce another run of the 610. I just sent in a request to them via their web page at
http://sales.liveperson.net/hc/s-90007204/web/ticketpub/msgcontroller.jsp

Please pass this along to all of the other forums and facebook pages you belong to.

Even if you are not a revolver guy please help out.  As we know there is power in numbers. More and more manufacturers are making 10s and more ammunition manufacturers are offering more. Let S&W know what you think.

I poke them monthly asking for another run of 610's and my dream carry, an M&P 10mm.

 :( Sadly neither has been met with much optimism from smith and wesson other than "That's a great idea, I'll pass it on." I thought sure they would at least consider the M&P 10mm 10th anniversary edition. But that too was a no go.

I’ve been sending them regular inquiries about an M&P 10mm since the 45 was announced.
A 5”-6” M&P CORE 10mm would be awesome as it fits my hand better than the G40.

S&W seems to have a “been there, done that” attitude when it comes to the 10mm.  Perhaps we’ll have better luck with Ruger.
I keep asking them for a 6” SR10mm hunter on either the polymer SR45 frame or the 1911 platform.

Defiantly won’t hold my breath waiting. >:(

What I sent:
"---------------Original Message---------------

From:   Jason
Subject:

no subject
    
Is there a run of 10mm S&W 610's coming soon?"



Here is what S&W sent:
"Reference number: LTK11177011997736X Please use this ticket number in any correspondence with us.
Subject: no subject

Dear Customer,

We would like to thank you for your e-mail and contacting Smith & Wesson / Thompson Center.
 
I am sorry but that model is no longer manufactured.
 
Thank You for choosing Smith & Wesson / Thompson Center products. Have a great day.
Smith&Wesson values its customers and we are happy to have served you today. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further assistance.

Regards, Steve"


I thought about replying "Duh! I know that, I was asking about a future run", but didn't.    :D

You know, a while back they had a post about how someone met with smith and wesson leaders to discuss the aspects of a 44 magnum. Shortly thereafter, smith and wesson started making 44 mag revolvers and send something like the 3rd ever made to the guy.

I thought about putting up a post about how I would be more than willing to take a week long vacation from work to discuss the 10mm with smith and wessons leadership and why they should either revive the 610, or make what I see many posts asking for...an M&P 10mm.

Has anyone contacted Dan Wesson about this? They do much smaller runs and I would LOVE a stainless DW 10MM with 6 and 8 & 3/8th barrels

S&W seems to have a “been there, done that” attitude when it comes to the 10mm....

Their attitude could also be "we did our part...we made them, but the buyers didn't show up"

Plenty of people want them now...yet S&W can't manage to make a 10mm barrel and cylinder for the existing N frame??

Maybe Ruger if S&W doesn't get it
