I made a trade for a Hong Kong police revolver at a gun show today.

Pictures tomorrow or the next day, but basically I just wanted something in a skinny barrel 10, and the lanyard ring is cool. :)

It's like new, though the grips have taken some battering from it having been carried a lot. Unless I'm mistaken, these guns were all carried in full flap holsters, so only the grips would be open to damage from bumps and dings. I'll get pictures later today.

Okay, so not exactly "like new." I was caught up in the moment, so to speak, not to mention being half asleep when I posted.

But still I'm happy. I've been wanting a skinny barrel Model 10 for quite some time. Now I gotta find a lanyard and a flap holster. :)







I'll go out back and fire off a few rounds in a little while.

Gee, I just wanted the lanyard ring.

C&E definitely stands for Customs & Export, and I'm assuming that the number is a stock number assigned by the agency. I was told that this was a Hong Kong police revolver by the guy who bought it from the wholesaler; I'll call him or go by his shop later in the day to see if he can shed any light. I don't have the current Standard Catalog, though I do have access to it. I just didn't try to look this one up.

I think we are talking about two different police agencies here, but each using the same configuration in the M & P, lanyard ring, etc. Both made around the same time. Both interesting, somewhat collectible, both same high quality. Enjoy, Leland! Regards, G>M>F>
PS: C&E stands for Customs & Excise.

I've heard Customs & Excise and Customs and Export. "Excise" makes a bit more sense, though. Two different HK agencies makes a lot of sense.

I want to know an absolute, definitive answer, but only so I'll have something to say when shooting friends come over. :)

Nothing more authoritative than a S & W letter signed by Roy Jinks, but it means a further investment of $30. Well worth it to me on a few items in the past, but I speak only for myself. ;) Regards, G>M>F>

Leland,

Nifty gun. You might contact Collector's Firearms in Houston about the holster and lanyard. They have several H&K M10s in stock. They also have a lot of antique gear, so it's a possibility. www.collectorsfirearms.com.

As far as Hong Kong is concerned, Supica mentions only a special version for the Royal Hong Kong Police, stamped RHKP. The book indicates that the list is partial since so many versions have been made.
