I have a 57 no dash I’m thinking about selling. It is pinned and recessed, 6” barrel in nickle. It’s in very nice condition. Anyone have a idea what a fair price would be?

Thanks

At least $1000. Too bad you don’t have the original box. And of course, Condition is everything.
Love those N Frame .41 Mags !

Depends on condition, but $1,000 if it’s really nice. A no dash should be a 6 1/2” barrel. Collectors like nickel if it’s not yellowed or nicked up,

When Model 29’s were so difficult to find in the early 70’s I owned a 4” 57 in nickel that was an absolute tack driver.

If it’s excellent+ with original stocks, I think $1200 is where it starts. I’ve been shooting these guns for over 30 years and I’ve never heard of a 6 1/2” barrel in a Model 57. The standard lengths of no-dash 57s are 4”, 6” and 8 3/8”.

Depends some what why you want one for nickel to bring a premium. Not to say they don't shoot as nice as blued they do, but are easier maintained just laying in a wood presentation box. Had a 29-2 nickel that everytime it went shooting required 10-15 minutes of clean up. Same time I bought it a m57 6" blue NIB was available for same money $350. Back then the boxes consisted of a brn cardboard shipping box that held the shrink wrapped wood presentation case, a blue S&W box with the revolver wrapped in sw rust preventative paper with owners manual and maintenance kit as well as sight adjustment tool. This sat on top with a L shaped piece of cardboard to hold in place. The wood boxes that had the flocked liner stay good the ones with a foam covered liner self destructed. I'm out of date on values but 1000-1200 ain't buying mine.

Yep you’re right. I only owned a 4” 57.

I know you’ve seen the 5” version made for Col Cunningham. The 5” in nickel John Lachuk special ordered always appealed to me, featured in the 1969 Guns and Ammo Annual.

I have a 4” M57 that $1000 wouldn’t touch. It isn’t for sale anyway.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets. But the ones that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

Put it on the S&W forum and you will probably get the best price and a quick sale

I have a buyer local that was looking for one and he has agreed to buy it. Thanks for all the input.

I have a 6 1/2" 657. It's a "Classic Hunter", unfluted cylinder, fancy grips and "Classic Hunter" etched on the barrel...special run for one of the distributers, maybe RSR. The plan is to kill a deer with it in the next couple of weeks. Others are 2 6" (a very plain, vanilla 657 and a performance center Hunter) as well as a 357 scandium 4" which is an unpleasant gun to shoot with full house .41mags.

If I saw a nickel 57 like the OP's locally, clean with a good bore, for $1200 or less, I'd probably take it home with me.

The M57/657 is an ideal platform for the 41 mag cartridge

Nope, though extremely rare as lettered by Roy. The original finger groove grips are in a bag put away as they, like all finger grooves, for me suck.
