    I have a Smith and Wesson Model 57 .41 Mag. It has a stainless brushed finish and a 7 1/2" Barrel in really good shape
    what I am having trouble with is finding a price on this gun for selling it. Do any of you guys have any idea on a value or have
    book of values on this? Thanks for your help in advance.

    Mike

    Yah, well Guns Intl. has some upscale retail prices that very few would pay.
    In the real world, the .41 is somewhat of a DOG and has never acheived any real popularity.
    This is from a big Fan of the .41 and of dogs. I own several of each!
    Truth is, no one wants to pay $60 a box for ammo, and that's at Bi-Mart.
    Anyways, if it's a Model 57 it is blued steel, with a few nickel around. A stainless gun is a Model 657, and it's a satin stainless finish.
    The Model 657 per "the book" in 98% condition runs $425, 95% runs $315. They were discontinued in 2008.

    I would be interested in purchasing your .41. Only because my dad had one and it was a good shooter. Whats it worth to you ? I'm all about condition when it comes to my fire arms.Does it have any visible ware ?

    I have a 6" 57, and a 58. I reload so ammo is not an issue. Got a 500 lot of Starline brass before it went up. I do not really test it for accuracy. But at 50yds offhand (bullseye style) it is regularly in the black on the slowfire target with 210 JHP. Factory JHP did that well too.
