    New Pistole: An Itch, Well Scratched.




    Hey, look what just came in yesterday afternoon! A six-inch, nickel Smith & Wesson Model 57 41 Magnum.

    I've long wanted a 6-inch Model 57 in nickel but, earlier this month, settled on a fine looking 6-inch blue gun, found for a nice price on an internet firearms auction. After the seller received payment he called me back, remembering that I had said that I really wanted a nickel gun during our previous phone conversation. He was letting me know that, if I could wait a few more days for shipment, he would have an equally nice nickel Model 57 that he could send instead. Well, of course I was willing to wait.

    The serial number indicates that it is likely a 1976 gun.

    That's a damn nice revolver. Congrats.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    WOW Very nice! That is truly a awesome handgun both in appearance as well as caliber. Congrats to you on the new addition.

    When I first saw this thread the first thing that sprang to mind was "I could SOOOOOOO see glockman10mm carrying that..."

    I'm being consumed by a green monster ... jealousy! I loved my .41 Mag Blackhawk. Terrific round in all aspects. The S&W is more icing on the cake! good for you. Enjoy!

    Now that revolver makes a statement. Very, very nice looking. Me, I tend to prefer the satin gray look or all black, but I must admit this one's got me mopping up a couple of drips off my lower lip, there. What is it the young pups say ... Schweeeeeet!
