    The 57A was made from 1961-1975, it differed from the 57 as the A designated the new loading gate.

    I would only use Standard Velocity ammo in it.
    Absolutely NO HYPER-Velo stuff. (no Stingers, no yellowjackets)

    You MIGHT be able to get away with High-velo...but you'll probably find it will respond a lot better to the subsonic
    Standard target rounds.
