New Pony for me

Just got my 53 year old Colt today. It's a 4" Model 357. It has the very desireable fully checkered stocks. It does have a handling mark here and there and a little blue loss at the barrel tip. But it is in wonderful shape for its age. I am happy to have it and can't wait to put some rounds through it. Enjoy the pictures.

Nice looking gun! I recently acquired a .357 myself. It is a fine revolver. You'll have a smile on your face after shooting yours.
