I'm looking for an odd revolver.

    I'm not sure this even exists.

    Is there such a thing as a SW 657 with a 3-inch barrel in a round butt?

    In 1980, I had a 2 1/2 inch 629, nice gun, a bit too much ans the barrel was a tad too short.

    I've never owned a .41 Mag, and I thought this might be a nice one for a start. I already own a NIB pair of factory SW N-frame round butt grips. I have been saving them for a special project.

    There aren't too many of them. The SCSW reports some made in 1986 (Product code 103951) and a very few (~150) in 1998 for Lew Horton.

    There were also some Lew Horton/PC 2 5/8" round butt models made in 1999 (170134).

    Any one of those would be very intereting. I'd buy one for sure. :)

    They are not odd at all. There was one for sale on the S&W forum just a day or two ago, that's where I got mine. Here's a pic taken by the seller:

    This is the late 80's version, they usually go for $8-900 and are worth it! :D

    Hello, That gun looks like one I owned a long time ago (early 80's) when I first started buying handguns. I can't remember the model number but it was a Smith & Wesson, 41 mag. Blue finish, with a 4" barrel. I didn't own it long as it was difficult for me to hit anything with it. I don't know if it was me or the gun but I would lean towards me as recoil was stout, more so than my .44 mag. Ruger super blackhawk hunter model with a 7 1/2" barrel. I do kind of wished I had held on to it though. LM
