My blue steel N series Model 58. It is my grail gun, and I carry it on duty. I have a 99% pair of original PC magna's for it, but those stay in the safe.
This has been posted before, and it predates the time frame of this section in the forum, but I will post it again anyway. My duty load is a 210 grn GD at 1000 FPS.

sheriff,
that is a beautiful gun. I bet the 'pride of ownership' runs deep.
May I inquire as to what make the grip adapter is?

Model 58 duty sidearm for 13 years. $81.00 NIB with a box of shells. I bought it because I couldn't afford the $125.00 for a Combat Magnum. I destroyed the PC magnas back in 1966 to make a home made set of grips. Who knew??

Default I only have four

My #657 mountain gun, purchased about April 2009 because we have a mountain house...it was a logical choice.

#57 6" blue purchased fifteen to eighteen years ago, can't remember for sure. I can't remember why I bought it either. #57 & #58 below it.

#58 blue purchased August 2008, with box and non-numbered stocks. I have wanted one of these for several years. Originally intended to be a carry gun for my F-I-L when he went to the mountains, he passed away a few months later.

#57 4" nickel wearing Executioner stags purchased off a forum member. Traded into this one about fifteen years ago, I think.

Wanted a a 6 inch barreled .41 for 40 years and one came along. Whaddayagonnado?


Model 57 fired at the factory. The pawn shop had it listed as a Model 41. I walked out the door with it for $500.
Stay out of pawn shops if you wanna keep your money!
Mr. Iggy,

Very nice collection. $500.00 for that absolutely beautiful blued 57 is a true steal/felony. You should turn it over to me for $550.00 to clear your conscience . My 6" no dash 57 looked like that in it's presentation case back in 76. It looks a bit rougher but is my sentimental favorite S&W. Will take new pics of my tribe and post next week. Just added a 58 to replace the one I sold like an idiot in 85!

Here are my two 4 inch model 57's. They are both S serial numbered guns from about 1965.

I handload my ammo for these guns. A 210 grain SWC bullet and 7.5 grains of Unique. Very accurate.

An unusual .41 Mag: The frame is a 624 that shot patterns not groups. Looking for a way to salvage my purchase price, I found a 4" .41 Mag barrel and already owned a .41 cylinder. Put it all together and wonder of wonder it is a tack driver!

Iggy, that knife reminds me of one that Sam Fadala has pictured. Neat-o!

(I've tried to post pix of the .41 that I traded a while back, but they're too huge. Sorry.)

Here is a 25 shots from new 8 3/8" that I traded into awhile back:

Because I didn't want to shoot the long 57, I bought this long 657

I traded a Model 66 straight up for this 657 6" many years ago

I also have a 57-1 blue 6" shooter, but don't have a picture available. I have mostly shot hard cast lead bullets with Unique or Herco, but lately been using some 231. All of them shoot way better than I do!

Well, I'm envious. I've wanted a Model 57 6-inch since I was about 13 and that was in 1970. Just picked one up off the internet a couple of days ago and can't feature it here as it has not arrived yet. The dream Model 57 .41 of my youth was in nickel but this one is blue, with wooden box and original accessories. I was watching for nickel but the price for the blue was quite decent so couldn't let it go by.

A 40-year itch finally scratched. What about that?

Bottom to Top
4" & 6" 57-1's,
6" & 3" 657's,
Mallard Duck belonging to my young Golden.



Just got the 3" 657 a short while ago, am thinking of going w/wood Houges on it.
Nice story to it. Older gentleman who's been in our club forever usually swings by the range during his daily round about town. I'm a morning shooter and have had numerous conversations w/him. He's very knowledgable about firearms (and history, politics, geography....) One day I was shooting a 6.5" 624 and he mentioned he'd never gotten around to owning a .44spl.
I had another 624 identical to the one I was shooting. In the past he'd mentioned he had a 3" 657. I offered to trade him, he said he'd think about it. Several days later he showed up w/the 657 and said let's trade. I told him he hadn't seen my offering and it was at home. His response was I'd said it was in nice shape and he trusted me.
I ran home got the 624 and a box of shells and met him at the range. I wanted his gun but wasn't comfortable w/the way this deal was going, I felt an even trade wasn't fair to him. I told him this and he replied it was fair from his point of view. I persisted telling him a 3" 657 was more desireable than a 6.5" 624. Not from his point of view he told me. "It's OK Kevin" he said.
We did the deal.
Later I related my experience w/a longtime club member who knows the gentleman well. I was a bit concerned about being viewed as having taken advantage of the gentleman. This member told me prior to the deal the two of them had a conversation and the gentleman had told him he was making the trade because he could tell I really wanted the 657. I also found out he has an extensive firearms collection, double bbl rifles, classic shotguns, drillings shotgun/rifles and a ton of collectable handguns.
I believe he knew the dollars and cents of our deal, it was an act of kindness on his part. Perhaps because on occassion I stopped my shooting and sat down and chatted w/him? No charity on my part, I thoroughly enjoy our conversations.
Kevin

Here is my 6" 57-1.It is the second handgun I bought after turning 21 years old.

Here is a 4" 57-5 Mountain Gun I picked up a while back.I need to find better grips for this N frame round butt gun that fit my big hands better.

Here is a new Classic Series 4" 57-6 I just got a few months ago.I added these older grips to this gun.

Here they are altogether.

Chuck, according to O.C.G.A. 16-22-3101 you are over your legal limit of Model 58's. I am obligated to allow you to send me the 58 of your choice to me....PM for my mailing address, and we will forget this little incident ever happened

This is my S prefix 57 that I bought supposedly unfired (though it clearly had been, even if only a few rounds) in the presentation case with unused tools, papers etc. I have owned several 57's/657's now, but this is my favorite so far. These grips were made right after they dropped the diamond center, and they are much narrower and far more comfortable than later target grips. This gun also has some of the most beautiful case colors on the hammer and trigger that I have seen on any gun. The pics don't truly show how brilliant they really are-

Marlin 1894FG

Ruger Flattop

M57 "Classic" , now has Hogues on it. Wood grips + .41 Mag= No Go

Wouldn't mind a 657 of some sort, and Ruger needs to get in gear and make a stainless .41 Blackhawk, in 5.5" of course.

Here's mine, a 57 no dash, in nickle. It has the wooden box, tools, paperwork, and shipping cardboard box.


And my 58-1 recently purchased, on its first trip to the "range".

I've also got a 6" blued 57-1, that I picked up used several years ago.

Boy, I hadn't thought of "ol fiddle faddle Fadala" years.

I remember him from when he was just learnin' to shoot muzzle loaders on jack rabbits, and "Duke" Venturino when he was still Mike.

Course I remember Custer too.

Just recently purchased this one.Always wanted one and finally bit the bullet.Kinda bummed after I picked this one up I found several for around the same price with factory boxes and tools(one with a nice presentation case in nickel).Not gonna complain though.
I may even shoot it for the first time TODAY
Sorry for the store bought pics,I havent taken any of my own yet.I was smart enough to buy a set of decellerator grips for shooting.

Here are mine. 657 no dash, and an early (pre-warning) NM Blackhawk.



Hey mkk41, the stainless frame looks great on your Blackhawk. Where would a guy get his hands on one of those?

Now you've gone and distracted me. Instead of getting some yard work done today I took some photos of my non Smith and Wesson .41 Magnums.















Marlin .41 Magnums 1894CCL, 1894fg, 1894S

And another Marlin 1894fg with a custom stock...if I ever get around to fitting and finishing the stock.

A few S&W .41 Magnums



The "Last Cartridge" Model 57 from The Twelve Revolvers Series.






My dad bought this Model 58 in Dec. 1964

13 years and a million miles in holster took some of the "purty" off of mine.


Still the smoothest action of any revolver I have ever owned.

I took it out shootin' last summer for the first time in nearly 30 years. It was like puttin' on an old sweater. I'm not as fast or as accurate as I use to be, but I wouldn't want to be in front of the two of us even today.
Dad carried his 58 for awhile 'til he got denied permission to carry it.
He even had the same style holster made by the same company that made their duty holsters for the Mod 10-6 HB so everything looked similar just at 11/10ths scale.
Of course that is the first .41 Magnum I ever shot and it started me down that slippery slope of .41 Magnum love

The weather was so nice this afternoon that I wandered around the yard photographing some more .41s.

That's odd...I have a 657 and 657s -2, -3, -4, and -5 but no -1





Nickel 57 with Kurac stocks.


A couple more shots of my blued 4 inch 57 with Kurac stocks.

Impressive collection 41collector.

How do you like the Desert Eagle?
I've talked myself out getting a Desert Eagle and a Contender several times as I don't know how much I'd shoot them.

I do need to find one of the Perfomance Center 657s with the fluted cylinder and detachable compensator like you have.

The Desert Eagle is huge and bulky, but very accurate. Recoil is a lot different than the revolvers, I guess with that massive slide coming back.

I've only shot it maybe a dozen times. Not that I don't like it, just don't shoot it much. It's one of the few in the picture that has been shot.

Here's my 3 amigo's with a 58 on it's way. My favorite "Do All" round. Next to my .45 Colt Commander I trust my 3" 657 as a carry/SD weapon more than any other round. Know what it will do to a deer and have 100% faith in it's takedown power. A 210 gr. Speer Gold Dot is devestating in this caliber. A LSWC at 800 fps is a fun plinking round and a hard cast LSWC at 1100 fps will blow through just about anything, making it a great hunting, large critter killer.

I no longer own any .44 mags as the .41 mag can do everthing the .44 can with a little less recoil. Been shooting this caliber for 33 years and it's my favorite! Bought the 6" 57 as a grad present to myself in 77 cheap as the .44 mag was Dirty Harry priced and I got it for 225.00 with the box and fixins IMS. Bailed alot of hay and milked many a cow for it! It's seen 6 years of constant carry in Alaska as my last ditch bear gun and has 37 deer to it's credit. All short shots and very impressive results.
