Default New Lipsey .357 Magnum Series?

3" is pictured, 5" and 7" aren't yet. No prices yet. Anyone know anything about these critters? Thanks, Dennis

Supposedly the cylinders are unfluted. If you like that feature they would be great guns. The 5" is one of the most useful barrels out there and the 7", prior to this release, was one of the most rare. The 3" is current production anyway so I'd concentrate on the 5" or 7" personally.

I'm not seeing them, but did see a 686 Mountain Gun that looks pretty sweet.

I am betting the 3 incher pictured is a seven shot cylinder. I counted index notches and I saw three... (this is an educated guess)

I checked the Lipsey's site. All are in stock and are seven shooters. I'd have to go with the 5" myself. Bob!

No MSRP listed yet, but the wholesale price is just $15 over the 686 plus. They are all seven shooters.
