Smith and Wesson is bringing back the .41 Magnum at this year’s SHOT show in the model 57 Classic and the model 357 Night Guard. (Information on the S&W model 357 Night Guard is here.)
The S&W model 57 Classic is offered in four variations: 4″ and 6″ in bright blue and 4″ and 6″ in bright nickel. Each model features color case hardened triggers and hammer spurs. All of the variations are made of fine carbon steel and hold six rounds.
In addition to the beautiful metal colors, the revolvers all feature the classic styling of the checkered square-butt walnut grips.
Sights are handled in the classic style as well: a pinned red ramp front sight and a micro-adjustable, white outline rear sight.
I really love the styling of the classic S&W revolvers and these look great. The only thing I absolutely dislike about them: the internal safety lock. If Smith and Wesson would make these WITHOUT the lock, I would order a 4″ blue model 57 as soon as my dealer opened shop tomorrow!
MSRP ranges from $1067 to 1130 depending on finish and barrel length.
