Looking for little bit of help here , found a model 57 trying to figure out when it was made , I may have to go back a see if he doesn’t mind removing the grips to look there . I’m posting some pictures, it still has the ( lazy) ampersand.

My 57 is by far my favorite revolver, and cartridge in .41 magnum. The pistol you're showing is a 1st gen, no dash model, and it has no internal lock.

Don't walk.....run to the shop and get it. I like shorter barrels, but I wouldn't even think about passing up on this one. If it's priced less than $1,000, it's a steal.
It took me nearly 3 years to find a model 57 to add to my accumulation, and I bought it on the word from a friend. It was in a shop about 8 hours drive for me, so I bought it over the phone. Even with an internal lock I was not disappointed when I got it. It will be one of the last S&W's I'll part with. Here's an old photo of mine.

Congratulations! The .41 magnum is my favorite revolver cartridge, and the Model 57 is my favorite vehicle for it. I had a real nice model 58 years ago and had to sell it to make the mortgage one month. I regret it every day.

The lock is easy to remove and plug. It takes me about 10 minutes to do one. Give it a try.
