I think that it is hilarious that S&W would resurrect an extinct revolver as their 10mm platform.Back when i talked to S&W, they didnt feel there was enough of a market for the 10mm to want to make one in the M&P series. I can`t feel sorry for their loss, other companies are listening to their customer base, and are making them available. I own some 10mm, and its nice to have a semi-auto in the 41 magnum class of power.
Who can argue with their logic? A relatively expensive revolver, that shoots a "not so mainstream", semi-auto cartridge, should sell by the tens and tens this year. This means that they wouldn't have to work nearly as hard as if they had introduced a 10mm M&P semi-auto, that would sell in the thousands.
How freakin' hard would it be for S&W to introduce a 10mm M&P based on the beefier M&P45 platform?
