The Smith & Wesson Registered Magnum

The first gun ever chambered in .357 Magnum was Smith & Wesson’s Registered Magnum revolver. From the minds of Elmer Keith and Phil Sharpe came a powerful new cartridge that changed the face of handgunning, law enforcement, and hunting.

The Registered Magnum enjoyed an incredible marketing campaign upon its release, but also offered customers a remarkable level of customization and superb craftsmanship. Today, it is their story, power, quality, and wide variety of configurations that keeps them among the most desirable Smith & Wessons ever made.

Many of these rare and extraordinary examples come courtesy of the Dave Ballantyne Collection.
