By "Colt 357" do you mean the model built in the early 1950s on the Officers Model Frame,or the pre-war & much larger New Service? Factory installed layard rings are very rare after 1945,and even many of the later New Services lacked them. This must be a very interesting revolver. Laynard rings can be found on eBay,but tend to run around $25.00. Good luck. Bud

yes this is a colt .357 before they were incorporated into the trooper line made for the florida highway patrol with a factory chrome plate and 5 inch barrel and a missing layard ring / swivel. a very unusal colt, next i have to locate a orginal set of wood grips

RJ- I too have a 357 Colt from the Florida Highway Patrol. Mine is nickle plated ( I don't believe 357's were chromed).Neither mine nor another I saw had the lanyard ring. One of ours is an interesting variation. I also have a bright stainless 4" Python that replaced the nickle 357's
