I've got a Ruger Red Hawk in .41mag. It's a very accurate piece, fun to shoot. The down side? Ammo's expensive and could be hard to find, even before the recent unpleasantness. Because of that, it doesn't come out much these days.

I have a 6" 57, a 4" 657 and a 1964 vinitage 4" 58. My fave? The 4" 657. It was my carry gun for about 4 years

Wow! A first year 58. And a 4 in 657 for carry.
The previous owner of the model 57 I have used it for a carry gun. It is a 77 or 78 year gun that has had the barrel cut to 3 1/2 in and the square shoulders of the target sights rounded off. This gun will still shoot as well or better than my Bisley 41.

And, you will cry when I tell you the 58 only cost me $165. Bought it at a pawn shop that had no clue what they had gathering dust! The 6" 57 set me back all of $225. Pinned and recessed. The 657 was a Christmas gift from my ex, but went to work with me daily until we converted to semi-autos

Maybe a year or so ago, my gunsmith, Keith Warner of Memphis, told me he had acquired a Ruger .41 Magnum, a Three Screw Blackhawk. It was his intention to rechamber it for .45 Colt, case harden the frame and add a steel grip frame. He called me one day looking for a grip frame for a Ruger Blackhawk to replace an aluminum one his customer had broken.

I told him I had two, one steel and one aluminum. He bought both from me, saying he thought he could adapt the steel one to his Three Screw.

I found a trigger available from Dave Clements to adopt a New Model grip frame to fit a Three Screw. I was in his shop recently and told him abut the trigger and asked about his .45 Colt conversion.

He told me he had been shooting the .41 and decided he liked it too much to change it. Appears he's going to customize a .41 Magnum.
