Default 58s...where to begin....

Bought the first one about 1974...a nickel that didn't shoot to POA so it ended up with a Bushnell Phantom scope on it.....so if someone out there has a nickel 58 with two counter sunk holes in it the gun was probably mine...

Had two more while I was with Dallas PD...a stock blue and a gun someone had had bright chromed...not nickel. Both were sold back in the 1980s...

Didn't have another one till I picked up two "butchered" ones on AuctionArms a few years ago. One was a mint S prefix first year of production...that someone thoughtfully had parkerized. The Target grips had some bad chips but for $430 I didn't think that for a shooter it was a bad deal....

This as it arrived...day one of shooting...18 rounds at 10 yards...the one out of the group was round one and my fault....



With a standard set of Magnas on.....



The original Targets shortened and refinished by a very talented friend...







It now wears a set of Cokes....






..more to come.....
