To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the .357 Magnum cartridge S&W have produced a beautiful limited-edition Model 27 revolver.
It features a 6.5″ barrel, a bright blue finish, engraving and a walnut grip. From the press release …
Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the .357 Magnum®, Smith & Wesson is proud to introduce this limited edition, beautifully engraved firearm.
The 75th Anniversary Model 27 is lavishly covered with American scrolls. Smith & Wesson’s master engraver is the artist behind the stylized design, machine engraved with precision and the finest attention to detail.
Only 500 of the anniversary model will be produced with a serial number range of SFY0001 through SFY0500.
Each of the limited edition firearms will come in a cherry-stained, glass top presentation case. Own this highly collectable piece of Smith & Wesson history before it is gone!
I am not sure what the set it retailing for. The gun with serial number SFY0001 is being auctioned at Gunbroker with proceeds going to the USA Shooting Team to help them go to the 2012 Olympics in London.
