S&W .357 66-7 Sts 4 in VG 2004 CA Legal  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: Here is the final form of the immensely popular classic Smith & Wesson .357 Combat Magnum Stainless, the Model 66-7. This one’s serial number prefix is CHS, manufactured in early 2004. The Model 66, of course, was discontinued in 2005, much to our disappointment. This 66-7 is the final variant after the K frame was strengthened and lengthened some time around 1998 with several of the 66-5s, and MIM case colored .312 smooth combat trigger and .375 semi-target cleat serrated hammer. Barrel, of course, is 4 inches, and the weight empty is a well balanced 38 ounces. This was one of the few made with the new two-piece barrel and recessed muzzle. Its internal lock has been disabled, so we are unclear whether it is legal for transfer to eligible California and Massachusetts residents. We rate this specimen as Very Good, close to Excellent, finishwise. Its chief detractions are buffed areas on the sides of the barrel, light faint streaking and scouring on the side plate and cylinder surface; and some buffing on the edges of the matte area atop the frame next to the rear sight. Stress on the yoke screw is negligible where the revolver was serviced by the Department armorer. We rate this 66-7 as a strong Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, specimen, since we estimate that 85 to 90 percent of its original finish is intact. Photos, however, should suffice for interested parties to judge finish grade for themselves. Grips are new replacement Pachmayr gripper, surest handling, best looking, and most traditional on the market. This 66-7 in Excellent Mechanically. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright, clean, and excellent. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap is negligible and only amounts to faint carbon deposit. There is no cutting whatsoever. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, less than 1/2 mm, both with the trigger pulled and with it relaxed. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the hammer travels 10 to 15 degrees after the cylinder times into place in all six positions. On single action, the hammer travels an additional 20 degrees after the cylinder times, and the single action trigger pull is a stiff but crisp original 5 1/2 pounds. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is an exceptionally close .001, and this explains the absence of blast effect to the top strap. Other specs are Red Ramp front sight and windage adjustable flat black rear sight. We have had positive experience with the later floating firing pin variant Smith & Wessons like this one, and very positive reports from our Arizona marksmen who really put them through their paces. This revolver comes in a new Smith & Wesson plastic case. Own one of the last specimens of a classic, the Model 66 Smith & Wesson Combat Magnum Stainless, for only $ 479.95 California certification expires August 2011. Now transferable to civilians in all jurisdictions of the United States of America.

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.
