According to its ACF serial number prefix, this .357 Military & Police Heavy Barrel Stainless was manufactured in 1983, the Year that President Reagan announced his Star Wars anti-missile program. It is a fully traditional model 65, third engineering change, with the Satin Stainless hammer and smooth .312 Satin Stainless Combat Trigger. Grip frame is true square butt. This revolver’s handler Law Enforcement Officer polished it, and there are moderate detractions visible on close inspection. Side plate screws have small amounts of scratching from armorer servicing. Light scouring and pecking is mainly concentrated on the side plate and right side of the frame, with similar scours and light pecks on the edges and bottom of the trigger guard, here and there. Matte area atop the barrel and frame have undergone some buffing, but matte texture is still strong. Left rear side of frame exhibits pitting where the original wood grips housed moisture, but that is not readily visible. Hogue Combat grips are new reaplcement We rate this revolver as Very Good, since we estimate that 70 to 80 percent of its finish is free of detractions; but photos should suffice for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. It is Excellent mechanically. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone is minimal, only a faint thin streak with no depth that traverses about 80 percent of the width of the top strap. This revolver has not had many magnum loads fired through it. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, less than 1mm total movement with the trigger relaxed by our estimate; with the trigger fully depressed, however, there is no lateral play at all to the cylinder. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the hammer travels an additional five degrees after the cylinder times in all six positions on double action. On single action, the hammer travels fully 25 to 30 degrees on all six after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull is a crisp original 4 1/8 pounds. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright, clean, and excellent. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap measures a respectable .009. This is a very well constructed, eminently serviceable Smith & Wesson Magnum. We are including a North Carolina Department of Corrections left hand duty holster.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
