Last month it was an excellent condition 1948 Fazerly Enfield No.4 MK I for $299. Two months before that it was a pristine M96 Swedish Mauser for $399. Today they had a 1961 manufacture Colt 357 in excellent condition, original grips with just a bit of holster wear on the right side of the barrel for $499. It is missing the knurled end of the ejector rod but they have ordered a replacement. It would be a great addition to my 1957 Colt 357 and near identical Colt Trooper in 357 but I forced myself to leave and think about it over night. What would you do?

One thing you can be sure of - if you liked it someone else will also. Probably won't be there tomorrow. :bang_wall:
Well they closed 90 minutes later so hopefully someone else who appreciates and recognizes the value and craftsmanship of those Colt revolvers didn't make it in. I will probably be waiting outside the door when they open in the morning.

Tell a shooting buddy about this deal. I have told 3 others of officers model match 38 revolvers that were good deals and those 3 friends/shooters have not regretted the decision to buy. Of course it’s good trading stock at a gun show as well if you find having 3 of the same models a bit overkill.

I did that. LGS had a 4 inch blue 357 nothing to brag about but would have been a nice condition shooter. Aw its just another old Colt DA. Procrastinated and gone when we finally went back.
And I could have had it put away for me by just asking.

I got to the gunshop an hour after they opened this morning and went to the end of the used revolver section where the Colt 357 was yesterday and oh no it wasn't there. I asked the owner if they sold the Colt 357. He said, "Oh yeah somebody got that one, oh wait a minute, you mean this one?" Whooohoo, they just moved it. I took another look at it, confirmed the replacement for the missing ejector rod head had been ordered and shipped and they would provide it when it arrived. It also came with an aluminum grip marked "Melvin Tyler's Grip Okla City 14" and a Flaig trigger shoe. $499 out the door. I took it straight to the range and it shoots great.

I found my first one for $279 in 2012 at a pawn shop. I didnt know anything about it other than it wasnt anything I had seen or heard of before. I went home a did some research which lead me to this forum then I returned the next day and bought it.
