Smith & Wesson model 65-4 Stainless 4 in .357 G-VG Mfg 1991  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: According to Supica’s and Nahas’s serialization, this Smith & Wesson Model 65-4 Stainless .357 Magnum 4 inch revolver was manufactured in January of 1991, from its BFR prefix. We consider this revolver to be in Good to Very Good Condition, but we include diligent text and photography so that interested parties can judge grade for themselves. Some of the revolvers that this one came from were evidently rack-locked every shift. This one has rough wear on its trigger guard edges, and extensive medium pecking and scratching on its right side plate. Other contact marks combined with these lead us to estimate that 30 percent of its finish is affected. The cylinder surface is less affected; extensive original streaking appearance remains despite us having polished it. The satin stainless trigger and hammer are Very Good, perhaps Excellent, with 85 to 90 percent of their finish remaining. Replacement Michaels grips are marked in 3 places with Department number 101; and this issue number and the serial number are both etched inconspicuously on the flat underneath the barrel above the cylinder rod, as the photos show. Blast evidence to the frame topstrap underside directly above the forcing cone shows moderate cutting that we estimate at .0025 deep at most, and the cutting extends almost the width of the topstrap. Lateral cylinder wobble in closed position is between 1 and 2mm. Cylinder timing is excellent on double action; the double action pull is very smooth and the hammer travels for about 5 degrees after the cylinder times into place on all 6 positions. Single action trigger pull is crisp and about 3 pounds by our estimate. The hammer travels a full 10 to 15 degrees after the cylinder times into place on Single Action. Bore and cylinder chambers are clean and excellent. We consider this revolver to be in Very Good mechanical condition. This is an eminently serviceable and respectable 65-4, one of the last with the satin stainless triggers and hammers, and with the traditional thumb latch. None of its screws show more than moderate stress evidence. It comes in a factory generic brown box with the appropriate bar-coded label. We’re offering it for only $ 289.95
