    I've got to admit, I'm not much of a revolver guy. Apart from my 638 & 3" model 10 I do enjoy large bore revolvers as well. My .454 Casull's are long gone.
    My BBQ gun. S&W 625-3 in .45 ACP. If I feel the need for more power, I can also shoot 45 Supers in it.

    A snubby, but not a J-Frame. A S&W L frame five shot 44 Special...the first generation before the lock and MIM parts. My favorite woods loafing gun!

    Given the light weight, it’s rather snappy. But, it hides well in a barn coat and nooks and crannies in various cars. Moon clips make for fast reloads.

    I will say that cheap practice ammo (Blaser Brass, for instance) doesn’t have enough neck tension. The gun recoils so fast, the bullets jump the crimp. No issues with quality carry ammo.

    If you run the ammo through a taper crimp die (brass cases , I do not know about others) you MAY be able to keep it from jumping crimp.

    Cocking back the hammer is a pure joy. And pressing the trigger is almost sexually satisfying.

    I have not done my research yet tracking down the serial number. I donít know when they stopped making these model 58s. But this thing looks brand new. She had a good first home. But now sheís mine.
    I'm a little late to the fair with this one, but congratulations on a truly sexy sixgun!

    I'm a big fan of the .41 Magnum; some of the most accurate shooting I've ever done is with a .41, and I definitely get the allure of a custom 58.

    Mine was built in the 1970's by F. Bob Chow of San Francisco, for a SFPD officer who'd bought his model 58 duty gun from the department when he'd retired. The DA trigger is astonishingly smooth, and it is as accurate a revolver as you could ever find.

    I'm a fan of that platform too; I have one of the Lew Horton 24-3's, and it's an absolute tackdriver....
