S&W .357 Mag 65-3 SS HB 4 inch VG 1983  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: 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 SDI 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 is a service revolver, of course; but its surface detractions, only moderate to begin with, have been diminished considerably by polishing. Scouring and scuffing are mostly confined to the lower areas of the frame and trigger guard. Matte texture is still strong on top of the frame and barrel. Mid 1980s Pachmayr SK-GP grips are this revolver's own service grips, and they show only moderate wear. The Pachmayrs conceal superficial pitting on the extreme rear areas of the left side of the frame and right frame side edges next to the grip frame. We rate this revolver as Very Good, since we estimate that 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 thin shallow streak that traverses about 2/3 of the width of the top strap. This revolver has seen very few magnum loads fired through it. Lateral play to the cylinder is negligible, no more than 1.5 mm total with the trigger relaxed; with the trigger depressed, however, there is no lateral movement to the cylinder whatsoever. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the hammer travels an additional 5 to 10 degrees on all six positions after the cylinder times in double action. On single action, the hammer travels a full 25 to 30 degrees on all six after timing. The single action trigger pull is a crisp original 3 1/2 pounds. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright, clean, and excellent. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .007. This is a very well constructed, eminently serviceable, attractive and collectable early Siegler / Reagan era Smith & Wesson Magnum. We are including a North Carolina Department of Corrections left hand Federal Man 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.
