    Second Generation 357's weren't introduced until 1960, I'd call Colt and verify the caliber as shipped.

    The #14425SA is from 1957 But this gun may not have been built out until after 1960. Only a letter will confirm when it was finally shipped.

    Does it have:
    The shorter Round top hammer with fixedconical pin (mid-1959 thru mid-1960),
    or the Round top with floating concave pin (mid-1960 thru 1971)?
