I have a Colt model 357 6 inch octagon barrel revolver. I have read up on the history of the model 357 but have not seen anything on an octagon barrel. If anyone has any information on this pistol, please reply. Serial number 1104
I had a Colt revolver marked just "Colt .357 mag" once. I bought it used in the 70s. The gun dealer I bought it from said that's what Colt called their first .357s, before they started with the snake-name models. Mine had a round barrel and was Parkerized.
