Here’s a photo of the Model 10 I bid on a couple of years ago. I didn’t win it so I only have the picture to sigh at wistfully. They are some pretty rifles:

I saw this had sold. It's a very nice rifle in my favorite caliber. Years ago I lusted for a M10 but just couldn't warm up to that big ass recoil pad. My smith has built me several guns on Ruger #1 actions and a High Wall for a comparable price point BUT if I find a M10 that I like it will come home with me. Missed one in 22 Hornet a little while ago. There's a nice 7X57 on GI now but I have three custom guns in that chambering.
Congratulations on the adoption of a very nice rifle and yes posting pictures here is a pain for me as well.

I've posted it here before, sorry for the repetition but there seems to be a consensus that this thread needs pictures.

6.5X55. I bought it from the original owner several years ago. It's been shot little or not at all. Last year I got another M10 that I plan to shoot and this hangs on the wall with an uncertain future.

It's value to me is as art. I'd offer it but you nuts would probably take it in the woods...Tom

A lefty! I haven't seen such a right-brain equipped M10 before. Do you feel like you paid more or less than a similar RH model?

Guilty as charged: I hunt with everything I buy! That’s a beautiful gun in one of my favorite calibers so please don’t make it available at a price I can afford. I’ve already blown my budget recently & I don’t need any additional temptations. laugh

Put it in the classifieds and see what happens. I can visualize it being carried in the Badlands of North Dakota looking for giant Mule Deer or along the Cheyanne River bottom of Wyoming and along the coulees where deer and antelope roam. Possibly just being propped up against the wall of a Michigan deer blind just being admired during the slow times.

Life is to short to hunt with an ugly gun

Beautiful rifle! As are the others posted in this thread. Thanks for sharing the photo of it.

Perhaps later we'll see some field photos!

Here's my Dakota M10 in 257 Roberts I got from Gun Broker a couple of years ago. The seller had misspelled the word "Model" in the listing so there was only one other bidder. Still not inexpensive, but not as bad as it could have been.

Such a beautiful action and barrel that in my opinion is overwhelmed by wood that exhibits way too much figure and color contrast. It’s a beautifully engineered and crafted action but you don’t see it with this package unless you look hard and dial it in. There is such a thing as aesthetic balance and guys like Pachmayr and several others knew it was key to a really timeless beautiful rifle or shotgun.

IMHO there gorgeous rifles and a testament to the craftsman who build them especially nice is that 6.5X55. It could live in my gun safe
