    I have a S&W Model 57-1 with a 8 3/8" barrel thinking about getting a shorter barrel like 2.5-3" and carring it every now and then. For those of ya'll that don't know a model 57 is chambered in .41 Remington Mag.

    I'd go with 3"-4" if that's the case. A big ass revolver like that isn't going to benefit a lot from a sub-3" barrel for "carryability".

    Personally, I'd just go get a .38 J or K frame for carry.

    I've thought about that but just like the idea of a short barreled .41

    and the bark is a bit bigger

    i think regardless if you carry it or not you've got a sweet gun. gotta love .41 mag!

    but yeah a 4" barrel would probably be better to get a little more out of the cartridge than a snub. gotta remember, its not the barrel that's hard to hide!

    I carry a snubby 44 Spl from time to time. I have to say though its not a comfortable as a auto and harder to conceal.
    If carrying IWB its even more uncomfortable IMO.

    I always thought it a good idea to carry the same weapon all the time....in the milisecond you need it theres no fumbling of fingers in the wrong spot.
