I just picked up this pistol but I have no idea about DE. Is this a MkI, MkVII, or MkXIX? S/N 708XX-S

Pics were taken with my cellphone so they aren't that great but it was all I had at the moment.

i'm pretty sure its a MK7

Its not a Mk1 b/c Mk1's have a single step slide release, mk 7 and XIX have three steps

Mk XIX in 357 should have a cross slots for a scope...yours doesn't

I agree with TZL, and also the safety lever is not Mk 1. Nice stainless frame. I have Mk 1 stainless .44.

Yeap...hard at work! Oh, if I could shoot that NMCI PC with that DE & get away with it I would.

I had one like it, but in matte black. Accurate shooter, but I had trouble with it jamming even with factory 357. I was told some of the FMJ rounds I was using had exposed lead base and was gumming up the gas system. I should have not sold it, but I have a Mark VII in 44.

When lead gets into the gas system how do you remove it?
