Looking for this revolver

I'm interested in finding a revolver S&W, Colt, Ruger, not interested in anything from China or similar.

Caliber is 357 mag Maxima I used to have that round in my old contender collection but it was sold a few years back. I have lots of loaded ammo too much to toss.

A .357 Maximum?

Pretty sure only Ruger and Dan Wesson ever chambered revolvers it. Thompson Centers maybe.

It's a bit of a beast. Looks like T/C still makes single shot stuff for it,
but, apparently, most manufacturers stopped making revolvers, in the
caliber.

I used to have a TC but sold it years ago and that's why I have all this 357 maxima ammo on my shelf, i don't want to throw it away either so purchasing another gun that shoots it sounds like the best thing to do,

IIRCF, Ruger and Dan Wesson discovered that the round caused flame cutting of the top strap. The only safe way is a single shot, like the Thompson.

Plan B would be adapting a Marlin 336, mebbe an 1894 to the caliber. The maximum is a 2 inch long case, close to that of a .30-30. Don't know if the shell lifter on an 1894 can accept a 2 inch case.

There's two Blackhawks on Gunbroker right now, but at least a grand.

H&R Handirifles are an even better option! They actually chambered some in .357 Maximum and some guys ream their .357 Magnums to it. I havent and wont ream mine, even though its a great round out of a carbine.
