The Smith & Wesson Model 64 Military and Police revolver is the stainless steel version of its Model 10. It is a six shot revolver chambered in .38 Special. It was widely used by several U.S. police, sheriff and state agencies. The Model 64 was a popular choice in high humid states because the stainless model 64 was more corrosive and rust resistant than the blued model 10. Norinco of China has manufactured the NP50, which is a copy of the Smith & Wesson Model 64, since 2000.
Noted for its accuracy, dependability and manageable recoil, the Model 64 & the Model 10 .38 Special remain a popular Smith and Wesson revolver more than a hundred years after its introduction.
