The Smith & Wesson Model 1006 is a recoil operated double-action semi-automatic handgun chambered in the powerful 10mm Auto cartridge. It is constructed entirely of stainless steel, a 5 in (127 mm) barrel and a 9 round single column magazine. Its safety is a slide mounted de-cock/safety, internal safeties are a magazine disconnect and firing pin block. It is available with fixed or adjustable sights.

The model 1006 was the first in the S&W 10x6 series of third generation semi-automatic handguns. Variations include the models 1046, 1026, 1066, 1076 (FBI model) and 1086. The 10x6 series were some of the most robust, sturdy 10 mm handguns ever built, easily handling the power of this potent cartridge. They are generally considered to be quite reliable and accurate.

Other third generation S&W auto series include the 5906, 4006 and 4506.
