    This was made in 1965 and is the Service Model with a 4 inch barrel and fixed sights. Essentially it is a striped down Model 57 , but oh so accurate. Both I and an instructor shot a plate rack and cleaned it at 35 yards with a standard sight picture. The .41 mag is almost equal to the .44 mag but has a lot less felt-recoil. I have several
    speed loaders and the usual Pachmayr grips that will go with this gun from me to you for $750.00. untitled.png untitled.png

    Wish you lived in oregon. These guns have a great history, at one time they were going to use them for police handguns but they made the mistake of trying them using only magnum hunting loads. They never made a police load as far as I can remember.

    AH! But they did! The load was by Remington: 215 gr LHP at 850 fps.

    I don't care for when folks get to chatting in a for-sale adds, but ohhh be still my heart, this is too cool not to stop and say something (looks like others already beat me to it too - how awesome is this gun).

    I too wish you were in Oregon, but then I'm about $749 short in "gun money" at the moment anyway, so it wouldn't matter.

    Had one of these twenty some years ago and oh-my was it just the neatest thing ever. Big heavy barreled N-frame with the tiny little fixed combat sights. The action was amazing; that thin little trigger without serrations and the narrow hammer and then BOOM! The awesome thunder of the .41 Magnum and mind-control like accuracy; the bullets always go right where you had thought you wanted it. Have shot other 58s over the years and they were always the same. Simply amazing guns. I envy whoever the buyer winds up being, what a great revolver. Maybe of interest, of the few PDs that used to "allow" these, one was hippytown USA itself... SFPD

    These are sweet and accurate. A couple weeks ago I was sighting in my 300 win mag and just to see what would happen if I took my model 58 and shoot at my 100 yard target and after a few shots I was hitting paper!
    This is my favorite gun if you notice my avatar.
    Mine is a 68' model that I bought a yr ago in the original box with all the papers and had only been fired a few times. I paid a lot more than this one is priced at.
    This is a very good price and the person that buys it is going to be very pleased that they bought it.
