New model 57 41 Magnum but 4 screws?

Hey all

Just picked up a new 41 magnum but little confused by something


I thought S&W stopped the screw at the top of the sideplate


Confused

It's Smith's "Classic" touch.

The same is done on the Model 27s
and Model 29s.

I should have guessed it was A "CLASSIC" addon. I know it was new due to the "A" stamped on the underside of the top strap

Beautiful revolver. I really wouldn't mind owning one of those. I don't have a 6" M57.

This is just making me want to hunt down another Model 57 -- which I don't need! (Or...maybe I do need an S-series...)

Congrats! She's beautiful.

57

Congrats! It's a beatuful revelover and the calibre is fantastic.

I've been hunting boar with my 57 6-inch (Armoloy finish) for 20 years and absolutely love it.
