Thanks, mike6975.
IMHO, the brass latch, on the 58 snubby, is much nicer looking than the abbreviated loading lever.
Just thinking out loud... Trying for a latch that's as unobtrusive as possible... For an original cylinder, it's important that the pin be easily removed. But, for a cartridge conversion (with a loading gate), the pin and retaining system might be significantly reduced -- it wouldn't necessarily need to accommodate a tool-free removal, would it?

Thanks for the pics, but we've got a little misunderstanding, what I'm thinking about may nor have been made, yet.
I'm just wondering... if I go the snubby route (with a loading gate) what latches are available, and what might be possible. Thus far, all the ones I've seen accommodate quick removal, of the original pin, for models that require the cylinder to be removed to re-load. If I don't mind using a screw driver or allen key to remove the pin, I assume I can really clean up the pin's T-square grip.
