It looks like your M57 left the factory in 1973.
Guys, this isn't a discussion section, please try not to clutter it up which makes it more difficult to see all the requests and answers.
a) caliber - 41 Mag
b) bbl length (from cylinder to muzzle) - 6"
c) grips shape (round or square) - square
d) number of shots/cylinder bores - 6
e) type of sights.- adjustable rear (for windage & elevation)
f) serial number, and if there is a letter in front of or anywhere near the s/n on the bottom of the grip - N 346056
g) Model number if it is under the crane. - 57
1975 - 1976. My sources aren't exact on this revolver but do get you close, sorry.
I go to the forum to try to identify this S & W 38 MEP
, 6 fires,
bbl length 4"
it has a number if series 672xxx in the square butt, the cilinder and the Drum but it does not have letter before 6 digits.
The ID of the internal part is 10774
as recorded made in usa on the side.
but what surprised me most was this apparently gold and ruby cord grip. I did not find anything similar and I do not know if it is a special series or if it was made to order by a gunsmith. Can anyone help me with this. follow the photos to understand what I'm talking about. Thank you in advance.
Just picked this up last week - NIB.
Something is not right. BPB and BPD shipped in 1993 so BPC probably in same time frame. Problem is the dash 2 was from 1982-86. A dash 2 should have a prefix starting with letter A or some of the early dash 2's had 3 numbers then a K then 3 more numbers as example 262K059 is a dash 2 I have that shipped in 1982
Can you post a picture of the label on end of box?
You're right. I misread the model number. It's a 66-3.
That makes sense. The Dash 4 was introduced in 1994 so yours was probably one of the last dash 3's
Any help on dates?
4 posts to ask a question were really not needed. The first 2 posts have no information at all and why do we need pictures of brown boxes?
N609253 - 1979
N476158 - 1978

Crazybuldr, Unopened, as in never opened after being shipped from S&W?
And if so, why?

b) bbl length (from cylinder to muzzle) 4"
c) grips shape (round or square). Square
d) number of shots/cylinder bores 6
e) type of sights. Adjustable

The M36 left S&W in 1973
The M28 is also a 1973 revolver.
As for the CPD markings, my information tells me there was no special order leaving S&W with CPD markings. They were probably bought from a distributor and marked by the armorer. Sorry I couldn't pin it down further.
1980 or possibly early 1981.
That's cool I appreciate the info, thank you.
got a new(to me) toy today. I'm hoping it dates to my birth year!
a) .357 mag
g) 19-4 in nickel
