    Colt Model 357

    My 4" model 357 (1957) came with service stocks which I thought was sort of unusual. I believe they are original as they have the serial # written on the inside in pencil. It also has a round headed side plate screw. Curiously, it has a target hammer. I took the original stocks off and the gun now wears repro target stocks as I didn't want to risk putting any dings in the originals when I shoot.

    Pics would help along with the year of production. The early guns tend to be more valuable.

    When I picked up my 1966 .357 Trooper a while back, it came with service stocks and service hammer.

    I've forever destroyed its originality by swapping the domed screw that came on it for a flat screw (See? D was right about that. You should listen to him more often.) so I could put oversized Hogue wood on the gun, and having my gunsmith install a white outline rear sight blade in it.

    Need to further butcher it with a red front sight insert.
    After which I need to actually shoot the thing.

    Sounds kinda like me. Some years ago I sent my 6" Anaconda to Colt to receive their "ultimate" finish, polished trigger and ported barrel. It came back so pretty I've never been able to actually shoot it.

    This one's unfired, but no box or papers.
    My gunsmith took it in from a retired HP trooper who'd had it since '66, but never shot it, and was letting some guns go.

    I need to shoot it sometime before I die.
