    The .41 Magnum

    Thanks for the history lesson David. I always enjoy learning something new.

    Very good article David. It makes me appreciate my Model 57 all the more.
    The weathers still pretty lousy, so I haven't had the chance to shoot it yet.
    Thanks for sharing that with us.

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
    .45 ACP, Because shooting twice is just plain silly!

    It's all your guys' fault; Model 57's and 58's are Great!

    I joined the Forum about 2 years or so ago, but due to inactivity on my part, I am once again a "newbie".
    Now as to the topic at hand; .41 mags, especially mod 57's and 58's. Prior to joining the forum back when, I hadn't even heard of the .41 or the model 57's & 58's. Several excellent Forum articles on these, got my interest perked, and before you know it, I boutght a very nice 4" mod 57 from one of the Moderators.
    I picked up 6 boxes of ammo at a gun show and went down in my woods to our range to try it out. It was truly orgasmic! My new 57 was a 90% plus gun and shoots like a house afire. For those unfamiliar with the .41mag, the recoil is less sharp than a 4" mod 29 in .44mag and doesn't have the snap of a 4" .357. In short, I really like the .41 and am indebted to those who wrote of it's merits in past forums. Now, the bad news is, that I liked the .41 so much that along the way, I've added a New in the wood case 4" mod 57, a New in the Blue box 6" mod 57, a 4" nickel mod 58, and a blued 4" mod 58. The main difference between these models is the 57's have adjustable sights and the 58's are fixed. If you like large bore revolvers, definitely get your hands on one of these and give it a shoot. Anybody who plans on doing much shooting with a .41 should plan on reloading, due to high cost of factory loads. By example, a local to Oregon discount store, BiMart, sells a 50 round box of Rem. JHP's .41 mags for $49.50; yeah, that's a buck a round. They sell a 50 round box of .44mag for $27. One would think the .44 would cost more, due to more lead, brass and powder, but that's not the case. The .44mag has a much larger following, so the manufacturers make lots more .44 than .41, so the .41 is both more expensive and a little harder to find. So, plan on reloading your .41mag; you'll love it.

    Wow, it's pretty easy to influence you, I see.

    A good .357 and .44 is all that you need.....if you don't reload.......or even if you do!
