Description: Pre-owned Colt THREE-FIFTY-SEVEN Model double-action 6-shot revolver in .357 Magnum / .38 Special. s/n 22376. Mfg'd in 1960.

For use with the Magnum round, Colt changed the medium "E" frame with it's hammer mounted firing pin to a new design with a spring loaded firing pin (on this revolver) mounted inside the frame. To withstand the much higher pressures of the .357, Colt gave the frame and cylinder of the new gun special heat treating to increase it's strength.

This new frame design was named the "I" Frame (heavy). The new DA gun was ready in 1953 and Colt gave it a unique name: "The Colt 3-5-7". This was both the name and caliber. The 3-5-7 outwardly had a close resemblance to the new Trooper models, since they used the same frame size and action. The new 3.5.7 and Trooper were virtually indistinguishable without a close inspection. While the Trooper was to be a lower cost model, the new 3-5-7 was to be Colt's premium model holster revolver with a more carefully fitted and tuned action and a better external finish. The idea was that law enforcement and civilian buyers wanting a less expensive adjustable sight revolver would buy the Trooper, buyers wanting the .357 Magnum cartridge or wanting a higher quality gun would buy the 3-5-7.

Things got confused in 1955 when Colt introduced the "Super Premium" Colt Python. Buyers wanting a cheaper gun continued to buy the Trooper, but those wanting a better gun were buying the new Python. This left the 3-5-7 as odd man out, and in 1961 Colt discontinued the 3-5-7 model after about 15,000 had been produced.
