Traded for a 1957 .357 BH. Real pleased so far.
95% finish, slight wear at muzzle and on sharp edges. Few specks of rust that cleaned up nice. Loading gate turning plum. Pointer on rear sight. Dimpled ejector rod, front sight has serrated blade only.
Bore is perfect.
Previous owner just carried it while hunting, no idea of history. He did give me the ammo he had. One box .357 with 6 rds missing. One box .38's with 12 rds missing. Don't think he shot it much.
No turn line on cylinder, which amazes me.
Looking for any thoughts.
Whats a good insurance value?, these seem all over the place.
Will a factory letter indicate if the grips are original?
