    The base pin was a very reported problem. I have a late 3 screw SBH and it has slipped once or twice with heavy loads. That is the reason there are aftermarket parts for such happenings.

    Belt Mountain used to make basepins that had a set screw in them to prevent the basepin from working out.;)

    I picked up a 58 at a gun show in Montana a couple of weeks ago, 95%, $675.00. I can't complain.

    That's a great deal on a Model 58!

    I would love to see that new 5-shot 44 mag S&W, in a 41 Mag version

    I'd like to see S&W make a version of the N frame even with the frame mounted firing pin, which may be stronger) but loose the lock. I know a person who accidentally knocked his J frame off the kitchen table & the lock activated. I don't like the lock. A new N frame .41 without the lock would be great, but sadly we won't see one.

    Frank...you and me both. If S&W had left the ILs off their "Classic Series" can you imagine how many more guns they would have sold...

    And they really have no excuse for doing it as they have a number of J-Frame models now without the IL...

    And yes...a 69 in .41 Magnum would be even better than the current model...

    I have a 10" TC Contender and a Marlin lever action in 41 Mag. Does that count? :cool:

    Oh hell yes, Marlin rifles in .41 are the holy grail for .41 collectors. Which model do you have?

    As I have said before, I'm a big fan of the .41 magnums.

    It is an 1894 that I have had for about 25 years, or so. IIRC, it is from the second batch made back in the day.

    Bush Pilot which show did you find your 58? I missed the Bozeman show this summer it's usually a great show.


    Anyone packing their 58 into Bear country what is your favorite bullet? Maybe a 220+gr WFP?
    Thanks.

    For a bear defense load I would run a 230-265 WFN or Keith at 1100-1200 fps from a 4"...more than enough penetration and not excessive recoil.

    The Federal 250 CastCore runs right at 1100 fps and isn't bad in the recoil department.

    Missoula show in August, it's the best show around IMO, would like to hit Bozeman some time. Have you ever been to the Kalispell show?

    Bush Pilot I've never been to the Kalispel show, the one in Helena isn't bad it's not large though.


    RJM52 that sounds like a good combo & should be controlable too.
    Hmmm loading room here I come.

    Nothing like a Marlin 1894S in .41 Mag. and a S&W 57 as a satisfying combo out in the mountains or forests.

    Bought my 57 in 1980, new, and my Marlin .41 Mag. new in 1987. Enjoyed many outings with that combo.

    L.W. ;)

    .
    Love my .41 Old Model BH. Started handloading for it just last month. Mainly 215 gr LSWC over Unique. Taking it slow. 9 grain loads are next. Signed up over on Cast Bo0lits, thanks to Frank V, 336A and ko41...

    A Marlin 1894 in .41 is on the short list for sure. I even have a 1989-made and little-used 1894CS357 I'd trade... :D (...but only for it's big brother in .41. I have a Rossi in .357 that's a peach).

    Meanwhile, I have been looking at Models 57 and 58 on GB and was near ready to drop a ton on one, but then I saw a S&W M&P R8 and the rest is history. Now, if S&W would only chamber that one in .41!

    The Marlin 94 would be a great companion gun to a .41 Mag revolver.
    Even a beater 58 would be a nice carry gun in the hills.

    I was at the last Bozeman show and a fellow had a really nice 58 there... box papers and all...but too much money. For me anyway. I bought a 57 on Saturday in Billings at the show. Four inch N serial 3Ts for 750...no box. Really nice though. One of the vendors I had told I was looking for one... Had it waiting for me. He wants my Colt Officers Model Match 38 revolver though.... but that'll work. I'll get my 750 back up at the Great Falls show!

    skeet028, I never could get those boxes to shoot good anyway. I'd like to own a 58 but, with collectors driving up their prices my 57 will do for now.

    I'd be willing to bet that was one of the 58s I looked at at the Missoula show, $1100ish?

    Missoula was a really good show, a friend and I left with 4 guns and a ton of boxes of bullets between us.
