My new beautiful used satin 65

Walked into Cabelas yesterday and in the Gun Library, sat this 65 with the satin finish. It was love at first sight. Gun is in excellent shape. Not a spot on it. Really suprised it has recessed cylinders. Didnt know Taurus had done this to any of their guns. Really suprised when they said they think they have the box and then to see how great of shape the previous owner kept the box. No manual though. Funny thing about this purchase is a couple days ago I found some CCI Blazer .357 for $20 a box and my sister bought a few and I didnt get any since I sold S&W 586 last fall (which I already regret). Now 2 days later I have another .357. Cabelas did produce a box they had stached away somewhere for me. At least I have plenty of .38's.
Pics dont do the coloring justice. Its almost like a light beige tone. The grips are more brownish than reddish in pic to match frame color. Just gorgeous. Couldnt get date of mfg on Taurus website. Says not found. Anyone know what yrs they made the satin models? My first handgun was a 66 about 25yrs ago. This one I'll never sell.

Finally a Pic that shows the satin color good in the ammo pic.

Very nice! First time I've seen a 5 screw Taurus.

Sure does appear the back of the cylinder has been cut for moonclips.

Thanks guys for all the replies. Shot it today. My son shot it first and the first thing he said to me is "whats it gonna take to get this in my name?" I laughed. And as I figured my sister really wants it, but Im never letting it go. Its a keeper!!!

VonZ...Here is a pic of the color that looks like it. The guns a touch darker, but it shows the color tone. I have a $1300 Nikon and I couldnt get the right color. Even running it thru Nikon Capture NX2. Your pic of the grip is still to reddish. Grips a light brown. Funny thing is my Ipad got the color pretty good, but its to grainy to post.

Nate...you may be right on the dates. There is no lock on it. I cant find anything on this model online. I'll have to try taurus cs.

I have a blued model 65 .357 with a 4 inch barrell that I purchased around 1991 or 1992? It is a very good shooter and I have never had any problems with it.

I also experienced the website not knowing when mine was made.

Oh, and before I forget, welcome from northeastern Kentucky!
