This revolver was produced in 1959. The pistol’s serial number is 21003. This pistol is fitted with the 6 inch barrel. The bore is in very fine to minty condition. The target sights are original to this pistol. The original grips are the early large fully checkered wrap around grips with the silver medallion. These grips are in fine condition with sharp checkering. The action on these models are hand honed in the same high standard quality as the early Pythons. The original bluing would rate a 98% overall condition. The only real blemish is a slight discoloration over one cylinder flute. This pistol shows very little use or wear. This is a very well cared for pistol. These 357 Magnums predate the Python models. The 357 Magnum was produced between 1953 to 1961. There were around 15,000 produced during that time. This is a low production for Colt’s. This makes this revolver a fairly rare pistol to find today. This pistol is a fine original example of these 357 Magnum models.

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
