I think these in nickel are rather scarce in the short barrel. In '83 I bought a $189 S&W Kit Gun at a pawn shop but had to return it because it had been stolen. So they gave me $450 credit in the store. I chose a 2nd gen. SAA .357 just like this one (except plain wood grips) which was $450. I then lost a little $ by trading it straight across for my cherished '58 renickeled 7 1/2" .45. I sure liked that short nickel .357, though.
