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

Lucky dog you. Congrats.
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...
Oh hell yes, Marlin rifles in .41 are the holy grail for .41 collectors. Which model do you have?
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.
Anyone packing their 58 into Bear country what is your favorite bullet? Maybe a 220+gr WFP?
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?
RJM52 that sounds like a good combo & should be controlable too.
Hmmm loading room here I come.
Bought my 57 in 1980, new, and my Marlin .41 Mag. new in 1987. Enjoyed many outings with that combo.
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... (...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!
Even a beater 58 would be a nice carry gun in the hills.
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.
