Looks like you came out ahead all the way around.

I believe that all M57s were 3-T unless someone changed something in a special order.

I think you just got 100 rds free ammo. You did just fine. Now go try it out!

Sounds like a good buy. Ive owned multiple 29's a i always wanted a 57. Like the caliber. Had 2 Rugers. There is one like yours for 1k firm in the KC area right now. Too much for me now that im retired. 800 was probably a steal.

If I had that opportunity and $800 all at the same time, I’d go for it.

You didn't list the SN but said it is a no dash 57. If an S SN even without the correct stocks you did very well, if an N SN that's fine too; $800 is a very good price these days in the condition shown. Here's my no dash 57 from 1964.

Default Good Find

You can always replace the 800 bucks. You can rarely find a nice S&W affordable.

If it is an N-prefix s/n, he did very well indeed. If itís an S, he absolutely stole it! Here is my early S 57 with my early S 58.

Looks very nice OP. You did well. Here are my 57's ND factory fired only. 4" and 6". I think the 6" will be on the forum for sale soon. Thinking about it

Looks great! Welcome to the M57 club. We're dying to know, 'S', or 'N' SN#? I found my M57 about a month ago, already have 100 rounds through it, although I suspect it isn't new to being fired. Mine's a S, I think around 1968 vintage.

Thanks to all for the replies . i was told the stocks were original but if i remember correctly it's hard to tell . it is an N prefix . N651282 . there i a little bluing loss at the muzzle on the right side and a light turn line . i do plan on shooting it as that is what i like . i have actually passed on a few NIB revolvers so someone that collects them may get them . now if i can find something prelock in 45 ACP my shooter clan will be pretty much filled but you never know what may come along .hmm , 9mm,10mm and scratch that filled clan . thanks again kind Sirs ,kenny

Congratulations on the Mod. 57! You'll love the accuracy and the balance of the 6". Great handguns!

You sir did very well. 8 bennies is an excellent buy. My N series 6 inch is a couple hundred thousand clicks above yours. I bought it new in 1980 and wouldn't let it go for 10 bennies. Nice job.
