    I have an old, 1920's vintage Husqvarna hammergun. It's slim and trim, looks and handles like one of the high quallity British game guns, but at a much lower cost. I got it about ten years ago from Simpsons for about $300.

    40 year old Colt that is new to me this week. Silver plate and ivory. Silver is intentionally rare in my collection.

    How about a Mag-na-port conversion?

    Combat Mini .41 Magnum built on a S&W Model 58

    New in my collection, a near mint condition S&W Model 29-2 with a 6.5" barrel, made in late 1977. The bluing is perfect, and only a partial turn line on the cylinder. Cylinder lock-up is tight, with virtually no end shake. I feel like I went back in time to a 1970s gun store, and got one brand new! Model 29-2 (1).jpg

    Very nice! I absolutely love those older N-frames. I have several variations of the model 25 that I enjoy very much. In my opinion Rugers are the king of modern single-actions, but Smith and Wesson's double-action revolvers are a true work of art and an example of graceful workmanship, and can't be beat.

    Indeed! Nice find on the 29-2! A true classic from S&W.

    Oh that's so awesome! Not sure how .41 interacts with short barrels ballistics-wise but it's VERY cool!

    I've shot a lot of .41 from a 4" Model 58. Not what I'd call fun with factory HPs. Mag-na-port helps some on that end for the shorty. Ballistically? Between a 6" and 3" barrels, depending on the bullet weight, factory loads typically drop 100 fps, per inch, pretty consistently. Less so for a heavier bullet. At a 2" barrel the drop is 200fps or more. 3" seems a sweet spot for powder burn on the short 41s.

    41 mag

    189gr 220gr.
    4" 1238 fps 1098
    3" 1133 fps 1027
