My dad and his wife gave me a 50th anniv S+W .357 Magnum, with inlaid gold.

Made in 1985, never fired.  It was from her deceased husband (previous).  

Very cool

Merry Christmas!!!


edit, the smudge and wear look on the revolver is from a bad pic, the gun is flawless, and blued perfectly.  Many hands and bad pics are the culprit.

I'll try to get pics.  But about 3 or 4 generations ago of the pic hosting and posting on this site made me give up using it.

I will try again to see if I can get it to work.

IMHO it is [:D] a S&W M27 is the original .357!

I've always liked those guns becuase the N frame is stout enough to handle full power loads

Hmmm, the motto "Out of my cold dead fingers" comes to mind..
Nice gun tho..

It's not a small gun by any means.

I did tell my dad I would be shooting it.  I have NO safe queens.  I won't shoot it much, but it will have rounds down range.

Now, about those full power loads, whats the hottest thing I can buy for it off the shelf?  

Anyone have an idea what it's worth?

Tex - I have no safe queens either.  My middle name is bang, bang, bang, bang!  BUT, I would encourage you to look into the value of the weapon in pristine, unfired, no marks on cylinder  condition before you fire it.

Think it over, nothing wrong with a safe queen.
Link Posted: 12/28/2003 3:51:21 PM EDT
DO NOT fire that fine piece. DO NOT!

Leave it as a safe queen, thats a curio piece, DON'T shoot it.
