I bought a Crosman 357 CO2 pistol from a buddy of mine a while ago and I'm not sure what model I have. I seem to have read that there are two or more variances of it. Mine came c/w two interchangeable barrels; eight and four inches in length and was originally purchased in 2002.

What they sell now is a model 3576W which I believe it has a six inch barrel.

Does it have the brown plastic grips?

Nope, they're black plastic.
Oh, and the rotary shot clip can hold 10 pellets.

Back in the 1970's I had a Crosman 357 pistol that had the brown imitation wood grips. Don't recall how big that barrel was.

Your revolver is the Crosman 357GW produced since the year 2000 for a few years as a kit with a 4 and 8” barrel. The 357GW kit is now discontinued and only the 357W with a 6” barrel is still in production. In essence, these are identical revolvers except the barrel length. By the way, the 357W is made in the U.S.A. not in China as some people think. The 357GW with an 8" barrel has an excellent muzzle velocity (about 475fps) and accuracy. It's relatively rare now and definitely a keeper.

I have the older one, but not old enough to have the brown grips, mine has the black plastic grips but they don't cover the CO2 screw.

Thanks under500fps, that's exactly the pistol that I have.

Back when I was just a lad (in the 70's) I had a Crosman CO2 revolver that I thought was a 357 but I now realize that it was a 38T just like this one;

It had a slot screw for piercing the CO2 visible beneath the grip and you would load the pellets through a thumb slot on the lefthand side. You couldn't "break" the barrel or switch them. I miss that old gun :(

I have the .177 cal model 38T and it also came in .22 cal. The 38T & 38C were replaced by the 357-6 in the early-mid 80's.
I owned an original 357-6 back in 1990 that I bought at Canadian tire. It was my first air pistol.... later I bought the 8" metal rifled barrel sperately from Canadian tire.
Unfortunately I had to sell my beloved in 1994.
Today, I own the complete 357GW kit.
I bought it to replace that 357-6 I had to sell.
It would have been nice if Crosman designed the 4" barrel to be full metal like the 8" barrel.
The 8" barrel is a great bonus! Accurate and powerful, and the extra weight adds a higher degree of realism.
