Default S&W 66-1 - .357 magnum

I have a S&W 66-1. Recessed cylinder and I believe pinned barrel. I was wondering what these have been selling for?
It has wood grips with the s&W emblem but don't know if their original

Thanks for the reply.
Is there anything besides cosmetics that would bring about the $850 price tag?

Yours doesn't have a pinned barrel, and without looking at the cylinder I can't tell if it is recessed. See attachment for what a pinned barrel looks like. As far as the top price of $850 it is usually an early one with the paperwork and box. Also the shorter barrel (2.5"-4") are usually at the higher end.

Box, tools, paper? These are the things that normally cause a 1 to 200 dollar difference in my store.

Yeah it's not a 66-1. I bought my true 66-1 last year for $550 plus dros.

Open the cylinder and see what the crane says.

It says mod 66-1 on frame behind the crane.
Further investigation revealed it is a 1981

from wikipedia

maybe yours is a transition model. No pinned barrel but retained the recessed cylinder. Anyway if the previous owner was firing only .357 magnum, I would physically check the cylinder to barrel gap,end shake, and check the underside of the top strap for burn.

"Model 66

66 (1970): Stamping of each model.
66-1 (1977): Changed the gas ring from the yoke to the cylinder.
66-2 (1982): Eliminated pinned and recessed, slightly lengthened cylinder.
66-3 (1986): New yoke retention system/radius stud package/hammer nose bushing/floating hand.
66-4 (1994): Change rear sight leaf, drill and tap frame, introduce Uncle Mike's grips, change extractor.
66-5 (1998): Change in frame design: eliminate cylinder stop stud/eliminate serrated tangs/change to MIM hammer with floating firing pin/change internal lockwork.
66-6 (2002): Introduced internal lock.
66-7 (?): Two piece barrel and internal lock,
(2005): Discontinued.
66-8 (2014): Reintroduced with 4.25" barrel in 2014 and later with a 2.75" barrel in 2017."

Not sure if I agree with this statement. Snubbies and 4" models are all over the place. You can't go three steps without tripping over one.
8" models are just hideous, but 6" models are rare (relatively speaking) and very desirable.
If that were a 6" model, I'd be hounding you on PM for it.
