Is this a new one you just brought home? If so, way to go!Worship

This is the first Norwich gun I've seen marked like this. The 7360 is an elusive bugger, I've only seen pics of one other.

Cool gun…. but what about 360 brass ?  Impossible to find in any quantity I believe.

If it truly is a 360… COOL find !!!

A 360 case falls right between a 357 Mag and a 357 MAX.  Only way to check for sure is to drop in a 360 case and see if it goes all the way in.

I have to agree, the 360 / 357 MAG stamping is a little confusing.

Blacktop,

Here is an article about it by Todd Spotti.

The 360 was born at the 1999 Internationals at Ft. Stockton, and I think I might have been there when it happened. I remember I was talking to Bob Serva, owner and president of Wesson Arms, along with some of the other industry types when Bob asked “What's the most popular revolver and cartridge being used for silhouette these days?” I replied that the Freedom Arms chambered in 357 Mag was very likely the current #1 choice, with the Freedom Arms 44 in second place.  Read More…

Harly,

I have 4 Norwich produced guns and they all have NYI.  I figure this gun was made in 1999 or 2000 because all of my guns were made late 2000 / early 2001 I believe.

Nice looking gun thanks for sharing the pictures!

Jody

This got me to wondering! I am at work so I can't check but looking at some photos of my 7445 I believe it has DWC on it and not NYI. Also my 7445 is the only other one I have seen with the RV prefix to the serial number. I will have to try and remember to check when I get home. For every mystery solved several more pop up.

LB

 

EDIT:  yup, my 7445 has DWC on it also, funny I never picked up on that before.

Wisdom is merely the realization of how little one knows, therefore I am wise.

Harly,

 

That is THE ONE on my MIA list at this time.  You did great by landing that one.  There may be less of those around than 7414's truth be known…  Nice picture and thanks for sharing that unique shot of the caliber marking.  Never saw that one before.

That's a real beauty.  It seems to clean up nicely too.  You can really have some fun with all that ammo.  Nice find!!!Drool
