Default Service Revolver Trio

I started my L.E. career in 1983 when the service revolver still reigned supreme in duty holsters. I carried many different S&W revolvers during my 25+ years career. Living in South Florida, many of them were stainless steel, but as I have grown older, I have come to appreciate blue steel revolvers. So, I set out to acquire a blue steel, fixed sight, service revolver in all 3 frame sizes. The last I needed was a Model No. 13. So here they are:

S&W Model No. 58 .41 Magnum Military & Police
S&W Model No. 581 .357 Magnum Distinguished Service Magnum
S&W Model No. 13 .357 Magnum Military & Police

Now if I could just acquire a Model No. 520............

Beautiful trio! I appreciate the blue more than stainless as well.

Thanks! I actually carried that Model 581 for many years. It was the first personally owned service revolver I used. I then switched to a Model 67, as it was lighter and Stainless Steel. Then when we were authorized to load with .357 Magnum ammo, I switched to a Model 66.

I have the standard barrel Model 10-9, the Model 13-2, and the Model 58. I enjoy them all, shooting reloaded lead semiwadcutters at moderate velocities. Enjoy yours also!

Somewhere along the way we traded our aging Model 15s for stainless two & four inch Model 64s. My service weapon was the 2” and it was the only time I shot a perfect score @ qualification.

I just qualified with my 2" 64-2 last week, and shot a perfect score with it. I was the only one with a revolver, and the only perfect score. There weren't as many comments about being obsolete after the targets were scored.

Very nice collection there.

I have a model 681 that was carried by my now assistant chief when he was a patrol officer.

During that time I carried a nickel plated 586 and loved it.

I foolishly sold it when we transitioned to the self loading pistols back in the 80's.

I commend your selection but would suggest you do add a model 10-5 along with your model 13.

That is a beautiful trio of sixguns. When looking at the K, L, and N-frames together like that, it is very striking just how big the N-frame is.

That is a very nice themed collection, it differs pleasantly from the common accumulation.

Nice, compared to the smaller frames the Mod. 58 looks top heavy.

Who wonders how many LE Orgs went to the small frame 3" .38 Special revolver for all carry (NY City in the bad old days.)

Just thinking that a model 36 with a 3" heavy barrel would fit in there nicely.
