    A few S&W .357s

    Just sharing a few of my favorite S&W .357 magnum revolvers. I have more, but pics aren't handy.

    Pre-model 27, N frame, 1954:

    WOW that 1954 model made me slobber. Those grips are as nice as I have seen. Not that I would turn my nose up to the 686 but that pre model 27 just does it for me. You guys need to stop before I think I need another one.

    Here's the same gun wearing a pristine set of "coke" stocks. Could be my favorite revolver, but that is a tough choice.

    A favorite caliber of mine as well, both in S&W revolvers and Marlin 1894s. Currently I have a 4" model 66-1 from about 1977, a 2-1/2" model 66-1 from about the same time, a 6" Highway Patrolman (28 from 1958 and a first year Marlin 1894, from 1979. Looking to add a 686 +1 in a 3" or 4" configuration later this year, and a 4" model 28.

    Can't seem to get the pictures to download at the moment, due to some strange activity that forces me to another opening of the Forum's Active Topics. (Android system)

    I've probably fired more rounds from the 4" 66-1 than any other pistol I own (in centerfire that is), mostly quite warm 158 gr JSPHP. And it has a small amount of endshake now. But very accurate still. Love my .357's.

    The endshake shim kits are relatively cheap. Brownells sells them. Easy to install, there are several videos on YouTube. I think you can get by for under $20.

    You don't even need those in the first picture. They would look great on my 28-2. Send them my way and I will pay all the postage and your gas to the post office.

    Shark Bait, you are killing me! Those are beautiful. I really have a weakness for large frame magnum revolvers. Beautiful, great sights, great triggers and a lot of power. What's not to like?
