Default Time To Crow!! A Model 58 found a new home

Couldn't help myself after reading a local ad offering this for a Plastic Fantastic Glock. After patiently waiting a few days he accepted my offer. I swapped a FN Wonder Nine for it. I got a Model 58 no dash with a nice Bianchi leather holster. Also included on my end was another Plastic Fantastic Forbes holster. I'll take blue steel in real leather any day. I've been wanting one of these for years. Saw my first one in the early 70's. Better pictures edited in tomorrow taken in natural sunlight. Right after I blow the dust off my 41 mag dies.

Can anybody please tell me the apx date of manufacture. Ser # N1147XX.

YES! - I would have gone to the GS, BOUGHT a plastic wonder of the seller's desire and proceeded forthwith with the deal.
Good on ya mate!

Default I scored one today also

My M-58 is ser # n1533xx. It`s not perfect, but it is quite presentable. I`m still at work so no pix till later.
Any idea of it`s age it is a 58 no dash. I paid $625 and I believe that was fair.
Thanks, Jack
