Here is a very nice 5-screw Smith & Wesson .357 Model of 1955 with S number prefix, S1250xx, manufactured in the eighth year of production, 1955. Its detractions are twofold. One, some time during the 1970s its owner, one of our late Mississippians, sent it back to the factory for updating. The S&W Smiths installed a Red Ramp front sight, a .500 serrated Target Trigger and a .500 Cleated Target Hammer. Two, the grips have been cleaned and two coats of Tru-Oil have been applied. Other than those two counts, it is original, and many of us can live with factory updates. We estimate that for $100 or so the partridge front sight can be restored. Surface detractions are otherwise minimal. Bluing is full strength on the muzzle edges, with hints of white on the edges of the front sight blade, forward cylinder edges, and rear sight edges. We detect two or three tiny white specs on the forward left side of the barrel just ½ inch behind the muzzle. There are two tiny weak spots on the upper left side of the rear frame top next to the hammer. Bottom right side of the trigger guard shows a series of a dozen or so tiny white specks. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the forcing cone is minimal, and we do not believe this revolver has been fired much over 100 times, if that many. Yes, Virginia, we tried our best to recover the box, but no success. This is a historic, eminently collectable and very attractive Pre-27, one that was, like it or not, updated to the classic form of the 27 at its heyday point, the 1970s. Box, of course, is recent, but this fine piece deserves protection. We’re offering it for only $ 929.95
