Default ...and...

..the other butchered gun is a 70s vintage what "was" like new blue...until someone did what I always wanted to do to a 58....



Gun was like new when a guy in Idaho brought the gun in for "modifications" in about 2001. He brought it back to the shop in 2005 and sold it for Christmas money...and he had never fired it...





Bobbed and serrated hammer....



Polished and narrowed trigger with a great DA trigger job...



Mag-Na-Port Quad-Porting



Oversize cylinder release...



Just a GREAT gun to shoot....

Found a parts set on GunBroker, everything but the frame, so any time I want I can restore the gun to "original"....

Those are the two I have kept out of the ten or so I have owned...

As to loads, 8.0 grains of Unique duplicates the original factory Police Load of 950 fps. The above groups were shot using Berry's plated 210 grain bullets....

Of all the 58s I've owned only two didn't shoot to POA. One shot very low and one very left....other than those two the others were spot on...
