The 357 Magnum is not my strong point, but I do not believe the white outline rear blade was available from the factory back then.

I don't believe it started showing up as standard or option until much later. I suspect that the mid 80's is when the white outline rear sight blade 1st made its appearance on Colt revolvers.

The white outline first appeared in the mid-1980's on the Python, at the same time that Colt started using the red front sight insert.

There were no white-outline sight blades available during the 357's era which ended in 1961.
