Default The sexiest 357?

First off, don’t throw out your Registered Magnums because I can’t compete there. I wanna see “the best of the rest” sexiest 357 Magnums. Great guns, great pics.

My contribution is this 357 from the late 50’s with its Duluth Pack rug.....

I agree, but the 2.5” 19/66 is a close second.

I love the 3.5 inch N frame for good looks. All business.



But you can't argue with a nice L frame.

I'm going to pick just one. It says "sexiest". For sexy, then, I choose this 2.5" 686-4:

To me, Charlie's Pre 27 with the steer horn grips is as good as it gets.

My second choice would be the early .357 Combat Magnum that I was able to purchase from him last year.

Maybe a little off brand love as well. An early .357 Flat Top and a custom Ruger .357 / 38 Super convertible.

I was never good at playing by the rules!

Besides, the only .357 Magnum I own is a Registered Magnum.

I've never been a fan of the longhorn carved grips, especially the ones with the red eyes, but I do like the look of the ones that Charlie shows in post # 10.

Ok guys, I don't have one, but have always drooled over the Texas Ranger model 19 with accompanying knife. I have quite a few 357's but that is the one I lust after.

Model 27 no dash 5” Blue w/Keith Brown Roasted Maple stocks. One of the sexiest 357 magnums in my eyes.

Al’s right, the two-tone 357’s are beyond amazing! Had a few and lament their transitions for another project.

I've shown these erotic pics before. The ivory also looks sexy on a 3.5" pre 27, but I like it best on a .44 Mag.

If the cylinder doesn't fill the frame, it doesn't count.

One man's opinion.

I'd have to go with the original Pre war Magnum, like this 3.5" from 1938. They were just not the same after the war...

My 27 is my favorite.

All beautiful guns!!! I'll throw a few up here for consideration...


Since the short ones are getting so much love above, I'll balance it out with a few sophisticated and elegant long ones that to me, score way high on the "sexy" meter

"War Plans" - a Phil Quigley creation with KB stocks:







This Matched Set that is my Avatar:







As pintos were asked for above (and they are way "sexy" - in a gun kind of way), and in addition to Dave's great pintos posted above, here's a 3.5" factory pinto engraved by Arnold Griebel:








...and lastly, this DJ engraved Texas Ranger set meets the sexy requirement with all sorts of figures inhabiting the scroll:

I decidedly can't play in the "sexy" league, but do enjoy the fun of 357 Magnums enough to have accumulated a few over the years. Pre-27, 27-2 Blue, 27-2 Nickel, 28-2 and a Model 66.

None of them scratched up like RK's, none with shoes other than whatever Moma Smith desired them to have when leaving the nest....but all well liked by me

I need a towel to clean my screen. Thanks for sharing.

I would strongly disagree - that 6.5" pre-27 is way sexy to me. How early is its SN? The placement of the roll marks on that barrel are much more consistent with the 3.5"ers or all of the pre-war Magnums. Pair that with its high condition and it pegs the sexy meter!!!

For for roll mark placement comparison - here is Caleb's pre-war Magnum from above:

I have several .357s that I think are very nice looking - and I just can't decide - like asking a doting mother which of her children she likes best...

I have two candidates for this category. (Both could be called “OUT” on technicalities).

First up is a 5” Pre Magnum with honest wear.

Followed by a custom Highway Patrolman, 4” barrel.

This is my favorite 357mag. a model 13-3 3in rb. I purchased form Allegheny county homicide detective Lee Torbin in the 1990’s. They had switched to Sig at this point. He had sent it back to the factory for an action job after firing a 60rd qualification and never fired it again. I have all of the documents and the S&W holster as well. I also have his model 60 and 65.

Although fruitless to even approach the beauty of Richard's jewels I agree that the long barrels are elegant. This old pre Model 27 puts a smile on my face.
