It’s time to look for a revolver I’ve always wanted. I’m looking for a S&W Mountain Gun. Caliber is fairly flexible but I would like to start with .357 mag and 45 LC first. Let me know if you would like to part with one and what you would like for it.

What is a "mountain gun"?

Like a truck gun / beater or a specific model? (Never heard the phrase before)

I have a mountain revolver and a couple mountain guns...all 629's in .44 mag. The .357's are unicorns and .45 LC are a bit harder to find. Nothing in Gun Broker?

There are two 45LC on the broker, but I trust you folks a lot more than the broker. To answer the question about what is a Mountain Gun, S&W did runs of 4 inch N frames with tapered barrels instead of the more common bull barrel. They were made in 44 mag, 357 mag, 45 LC and 45ACP with a few 41 mag at some point in time. They actually have “Mountain Gun” on the barrel.

The 357 Mountain Gun I’m familiar with is a 7 shot 686 L Frame with a slim taper barrel.

I've got one in 41 mag. Very accurate and very pleasant to
shoot. Good luck finding one.

It's a specific variation of the S&W N-frame stainless steel revolver with a light 4" barrel in a variety of calibers, including .357 Magnum, .41 S&W Magnum, .44 Magnum, .45 LC, and (the one I own) .45 ACP/AR. The "Mountain Gun" designation is laser engraved on the right side of the barrel as shown here.
