for some reason.
Hard to tell it's not a M520. I love that tapered barrel with the extractor shroud, S&W should have done it on all the fixed sight revolvers back in the day. The front sight also looks better than the simple blade like the M58 has. Curious why you didn't leave the .41M cylinder on it, but the package is nice; I assume you reload, otherwise the .41Spl would go hungry. I've yet to buy Starline's .41 Spl brass for lighter loads, I just drop my magnums to around 1200 fps and all is good.

I wonder how many M520's have been sacrificed in the name of customization. Makes me feel warm to know my ANIB example is now one of less than 3000 that haven't been touched. I looked long enough to find it.
