That is a beauty, everyone should own at least one with the lock, this way you have something to compare it too! ;)

SP, I've got to ask...why not just look around and find a nickle 58 without the lock? Price would be about the same, and from a collector's stand point the no lock gun would carry more weight.

Now, I'm not criticizing by any means...just asking. I too want a 58 (but in blue.) I'm a bit of a .41 nut, but will wait for one to come along without the lock.

The last nickel 58 I saw for sale was priced at $1,200 and it was far from perfect or new.

I know the SRP on this is around $1,100 and at that price I would not buy one. Or an original, either. I paid $189 for the blued 58 I currently own. Maybe I can find a nickel one for the same price.

OK, that was 20 years ago.

Yup, I know. The last one I saw was a 98-99% gun, had the box and papers but also had Hogue laminated grips. It was priced at $750 about a year ago. I passed. My thinking was that correct PC magnas would run another $125-150, and it just wasn't worth it. I went back a few days later, and it was gone.

I bought a model 58 new back in the mid 70's.Actually my dad made the purchase as I was not of legal age. I had some money saved from various part time labor and recall the purchase price to be $146. I ended up trading it for a 1963 Ford Fairlane Sports Coupe,that was in very good condition. :lol:

I'm still kicking myself over the Model 58 I saw on the lower shelf at a gun shop in 1997. $250-

Hindsight is 20/20 but foresight it blind.
