    Hey guys,

    I have two S&W .357's, one blue, one chrome. Both are in really good shape, not damage, or scratches.

    Any idea what they would be worth, if I tried to trade them for something at one of the local gun stores?

    Ideas????

    I think you would do much better if you traded or sold them here. Gun stores can't give you true value.

    Yeah, the Gun Broker only gives 60% of what their resale value is. Its a ripoff for perfectly good guns that deserve a higher value. Its kind of an insult! :D

    I would swap these numbers and go with that.

    Is there a -# after the MOD 19 ? Box or papers ? What are the barrel lengths ?

    Not sure how to answer your question but maybe this might help.

    Here are a few pics

    I've had both for 15 yrs, all they've been doing is sitting in my safe. Don't think I've fired more than 500 rds through each.

    If you open the cylinder you will see the model number stamped on the frame where the cylinder yoke mates to it.
    Both guns have pinned barrels and recessed cylinders or P&R, so on the the blued gun the MOD # maybe 19,19-1 19-2..... the other gun looks more like a model 66,66-1....
    Having the original box with papers will increase the value as well as having the original wood grips.

    The blue one is: Model 19-4 (4" barrel)

    The chrome one is: Model 66-1 (4" barrel)

    Hope this helps clarify...

    The S&W model 66 is stainless steel.
