    Got a feelin this might get carried

    S&W mod 65-3 , 357 mag.



    Picked it up in Harrisburg (gunshow) yesterday for $322
    Dealer said it was an ex police gun.

    After a cleaning it looks barely used inside.

    I love it, but get new grips!

    Nice gun - fair price

    That is a good find for $322. I would put on Hogue Bantam grips for carry. I have them on a model 66 snubby and they are perfect, giving you a place for all three fingers in front with a shortened back that doesn't print.

    Sounds Like a Fair Price To Me...

    I been looking at the gun shops for a possible wheelie...but in .45ACP...not a lot of choices...

    You did 'good'...

    Great looking, if you can handle .357 with those grips, don't change a thing.

    I should think so!

    You might want to remove the knife from the trigger guard first!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I want one, I'd carry it too.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I love it. My B-I-L just got one just like it at the Dallas Market Hall gun show for about the same price. In handling it I liked the original grips really well.

    That is prolly the most beautiful weapon in exsistence...well...actually it's sibling, the model 13 is better looking, but only because it's done is beautiful blue steel!

    AWESOME wheelie! I hope to get one someday too!

    That is, in my opinion, as nice of a carry revolver as S&W ever produced. I kinda like the M13, too, but tough to beat stainless for carry. If it's in decent shape at all you got your money's worth and then a bit. Little TLC, maybe some nice wood, nice holster..maybe a little action work if you need it. If it was mine, I'd be sorely tempted to bob the hammer or buy a bobbed one to use. Great catch.
