strigger is a touch over 2 pounds.
serial #56-62164, 357 Magnum, 4 5/8” barrel with an nice bore. This gun has had a lot of modifications to the mechanism. The front sight has been serrated, the rear sight notch widened and the head of the basepin was shortened.
the transfer bar safety was removed, hammer nose shortened so it would contact the firing pin, a half cock notch was added to keep the firing pin from protruding during loading, the loading gate still must be opened to free the cylinder for loading and unloading the gun, and finally no quarter cock or safety notch was added. The gun has a replacement trigger return spring and mainspring for lighter trigger pull and smoother action, plus it correctly times and locks up.
