Help with identification please.
Help with Id please. My friend just purchased a colt in .357 with 7.5” barrel. Serial number is 14425SA. The colt site does not return year information. Anybody what year this was made ?
1957 - from the Colt site…
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)?
