I picked up this pristine S&W Model 57 for $500 out the door at a pawn shop:

I like this hand load for plinking/defense: 215 LSWC (Missouri Bullet Co.) in front of 8.0 grains of Universal Clays, regular (not magnum) primers.
This is a stiff load, and I now need rubber grips for this one, since I have arthritis in my fingers.
I also like 11.5 grains of HS6 behind a 200 grain lead bullet, which is also a real kicker. It produces a lot of smoke.
An even better SD load is a Remington made 200 grain jacketed hollow point using 12.4 grains of HS6. This would kick butt for police work. Lethal, but not hard to control
The Model 57 revolver is my Pride & Joy.

Hardly been a .41 Magnum made that I didn't like.
Dad let me shoot his S&W 58 when I was about 14 or 15 years old. Bought my first .41 Magnum in 1983, a blue S&W Model 57 with 8.375" barrel, next was another long tube Model 57 but in nickel finish, followed by a 3" S&W 657..then a nickel 58...then a 6" blue 57...then a 6.5" 657 Classic Hunter...and so on

My three basic loads.
7.9gr Unique-220gr Lyman 410459 sized .410
18.5gr 2400-220gr Lyman 410459 sized .410
21.0gr H110-210gr Sierra JHC
These all have given me excellent accuracy in Smith & Wesson, Taurus, Ruger and Dan Wesson revolvers and the Sierra 210gr JHC is superb in the Marlin 1894 and Desert Eagle.

Some of my .41s are pictured here ---click>>> 41 Magnum

Nice gun! How long ago did you get it for $500.00? That gun would sell for $700.00+ in my neck of the woods.

Modesty prevents .41 mag shooters from bragging about ruling the roost, everyone else secretly knows it already.

Count me in as a BIG fan of the .41mag. It's an ideal whitetail wheel gun if there ever was one. I've used both cast and jacketed bullets on deer and prefer the 210grn Hornady HP.

Nice collection and nice presentation.

Iggy, that .41 collection has made my reliable old Blackhawk lonely! Now I have to start looking for some company for it! I always liked the look of the Mod.57 S&W, or maybe the Redhawk in .41 if I could find one for less then $850.

Thanks, .41 Magnums have been a passion of mine since my dad let shoot his Model 58 forty years ago.
These last ten years I've really picked up the pace of adding to my collection and tomorrow I get to take delivery of a 6 inch S&W Model 57 "Pinto"!

I just purchased a S&W 58 last Saturday evening as the store was closing and went back the next day to look for ammo. This stuff is expensive so I guess I will purchase a set of dies and some cast bullets and give it a try. This gun had been refinished and the guy did less than excellent work so it may get a redo in the near future. Look forward to trying this baby out.

You're not too late to join, welcome. The bad side is everyone through post 136 got in free, 137 and after are considered tier II members and there will be a $50.00 annual charge. Since the .41 mag assoc is the best you're getting off cheap.

It is fairly simple cell formatting. Adding a pic, or emoticons, is fairly easy as well.

Came real close to getting into the .41Mag a few years ago. Found a relatively scarce fluted cylinder Ruger Bisley. It was very minty, with the original box for around $400. Unfortunately, some dummy did not know how the trigger pin was retained and had scratched up the frame trying to punch it out. Would've required refinishing and I already had several projects in the works. Had to pass on it....always regretted it. Some day.......

The "pinto" M57. Never seen one. I have a Colt Official Police 22 that is similar to that one. Rare bird. Ko41, that is an amazing collection of 41 mag firearms. Thank you for sharing it.

I have a Ruger SBH with a 1:20 twist barrel, and if not mistaken, S&W 57 or 58 has a 1:18.75 twist. Does anyone know why the different twist rate by manufactures. I'm guessing that with Ruger, it will handle the larger lead bullets that's available.

Here's my latest - S&W 657 Performance Center with 3" barrel, non fluted cylinder and great grips. It's only been to the range once but I'm soon to fix that. It joins my 657 no dash and 657 Lew Horton.
