I paid $475 for my S&W 66-2, 2.5" bbl. Is that cheap? It's certainly under-valued.

I suggest looking around at LGS' and see what good deals on used wheel guns come up. I bet if you're patient you might find a good deal on a Ruger or a S&W.

Taurus has some good looking magnums! They are a little cheaper then S&W!! Don't know how cheap you want, but expect to pay at Least 400 for anything new in 357!!

My idea of "cheap" is $500 or less. .

Try www.budsgunshop.com. You might find the gun cheaper elsewhere but buds will be close to the best price.

Smith, Taurus, Ruger- but keep an eye out for a USED Dan Wesson. They are, IMHO, undervalued, extremely accurate, and tougher than an army tank.

Bought my Ruger SP101 for 550 new! 2.5 barrel!! Add 50 bucks or so for the longer barrel!! I always think its better to pay a few more bucks for something worth owning than to settle for something you will be unhappy with!!

If you want an inexpensive .357 Magnum Revolver the Taurus and Rossi's come to mind.
SOme are under 400 dollar.
There is also EEA which makes its handguns in Italy and the former East germany supposedly to decent quality for the money.
Thier 357 revolvers go down to 300 USD..

The things with Reolver sis you dont seem to get a big dicount for a used one..
