    the only M58s I've seen are 41 mag. Is this a rare collector item or rebored/restamped along the line somewhere?

    As I understand it, rebored and restamped at SW. Hatched a 41 then got a government funded "caliber" change.

    N frame Smiths are what gawd herself had in mind when she invented shot & shell

    The caliber stamp isn't of S&W quality. I would guess a conversion outside the Smith factory. Just my opinion of course. Would make a great shooter....

    Could be. Just going off what several SW smiths have told me. Fun to shoot though. Got it for backcountry hunting. Boat anchor!

    No, not a boat anchor. Just not a Model 25-5. Would be a great packing gun.;)

    The old timers tell me they did that 'a lot' back in the day as 41 mag ammo was difficult to find. N frame is an N frame, cylinders/barrels are not that hard to change if yer set up to do it.
