This is a Combat Magnum Stainless from the final year of the Carter Administration, completely traditional and only first engineering change to the series. It is well preserved, nicely polished, and has moderate pecking and scratching on its lower frame edges, right upper frame, and forward Side plate screw from its days protecting our fellow Americans in San Diego County, California, during the Reagan and Senior Bush era. Its serial number prefix is 74K; it has pinned barrel and recessed cylinder with very nice satin stainless hammer and trigger and serrated grip frame. Note that the matte finish alongside the Red Ramp front and flat black rear sights is completely intact. Note, too, that the knurled ejector rod end is flattened and that the forward side plate screw and its immediate area show stress from annual required disassembly, inspection and internal lubrication from the SD County Sheriff’s armorers. We rate it as Very Good finishwise, with about 80 percent of its finish intact, disregarding the polishing; photos, however, should suffice for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. It is Very Good mechanically as well. Cylinder release operation is stiff but consistent. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the forcing cone is only moderate, about .001 deep at the middle with a groove traversing only about 60 percent of the top strap width. Lateral movement or wobble effect to the cylinder is moderate with the trigger released, no more than 2mm total movement; and less so with the trigger pulled all the way. Double action trigger pull is stiff but consistent, and the cylinder times into place before the hammer breaks on a vveeerrryy ssllooo pull on all six positions. On single action, the cylinder times into place correctly on all six as well with minimal hammer travel after cylinder timing. The single action trigger pull is a very crisp 3 7/8 pounds. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .006. Pachmayr SK-G Signature grips are approximately contemporary, dating from the early Reagan Years. We’re offering this very nice P&R Model 66-1 with San Diego County Sheriff’s Department number SDS 870809 on its lower left frame for only $ 469.95
