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; and it has normal handling detractions to its surface. 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. All the detractions have been diminished by polishing, but the matte area atop the barrel and frame still retain strong original dull texture. Wear to the mid-1980s Pachmayr SK-GP grips is minimal. We rate this revolver as Very Good, since we estimate that 80 to 85 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, a shallow etchy groove that traverses about half the width of the top strap. Lateral play to the cylinder is moderate with the trigger relaxed, but with the trigger pulled all the way lateral movement is negligible, less than 1/2 mm. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the hammer travels an exceptional 10 to 15 degrees after the cylinder times in all six positions on double action. On single action, the hammer travels a full 25 to 30 degrees on all six after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull is an exceptionall crips 3 1/2 pounds. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright, clean, and excellent. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a tight .005, and this helps explain the lack of blast effect to the top strap. This is a very well constructed, eminently serviceable 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.
