    That appears to be a 4 inch barrel measured to the cylinder. The 357 is the model of the gun. The Three Fifty Seven is a desirable gun and yours appears to have been made in 1960. If mechanics are good with the level of wear it is hard to place a value but 350 to 450 depending on location is going to be close in my opinion. Your gun appears to have correct stocks and other condition appears original and correct.

    Thank you. Took it to gunsmith for tune up he installed new firing pin and adjusted the cylinder. He told me he wished for me not to pick it up

    Mechanicals should be good now. Only about 15000 of this model were made between 1954 and 1961 when they stopped its production and replaced it with a slightly less polished model, the Trooper, in caliber .357.

    Medallions on stocks are too early for 1960. Either pre-war or early 1950's.

    Meaning either the gun is a 1950's model or the grips were replaced.

    A serial number check will tell you when it was made.

    Check here:

    I'd put the value at more then $350 to $450. I don't even try to keep up with Colt values but prices on higher quality Colt models like the 357 seem to be higher than that.
    You can check Gunbroker.com to see what they're selling for.

    Stepped rear sight is from a later time period than the grips. My money is on replacement handles.

    OP, that isn't a bad thing per se as those are Colt original grips. They just don't appear to be original to that particular gun.
