    Found this minty S&W Model 57 (P&R; no dash; .41 Magnum; 8 3/8" barrel - made in 1981) at the pawn shop this Saturday.

    Absolutely perfect in condition, has that really deep blue that you cannot get in any new revolver anymore. The target grips are original to the gun and have no mars at all. It also has target trigger and target hammer.

    My son and I took it out to the range today and... WOW!
    It's the proverbial TACK Driver!

    I'm still looking for one of those with a six-inch barrel. Mighty pretty!

    :what:
    I can never find these deals. :( Well, maybe not never; I did get a used Glock 27 for $299 a few months ago. But that's not the same. ;)
