Hawes Western Marshall in .44 Magnum

Has anyone ever heard of this weapon. I had one many years ago. It had a case hardened frame and rosewood grips. Quite a nice piece. I had to part with it due to financial hardships but have never lost the sentimental attachment. I'm interested in finding out as much as I can about it. I may even pursue reacquiring one.

That would be a J.P. Sauer and Son made gun imported from germany before they merged with Sig.

IIRC, they didn't import them for too long and they are not very common. The prices are not high, running around $250 tops, and they are not bad guns. I hope you find one if you want it, but if you want a good SA .44, a Ruger would be better and more easily obtained.

Hawes 44

I have just the revolver you are talking about. No, it's not for sale. Seems like I bought it in 1967 ot thereabouts. I remember it coming by a local shipping company. The front sight was slightly askew so I had the gunsmith put on a new one and had the barrel cut down to 5.5". At the time, he (the gunsmith) pronounced the pistol "a solid sixgun". That designation always pleased me. Now-a-days, it does duty as my wife's cowboy pistol. Lots of luck finding one. Quantrill

Thanks for the input. I believe however that I will follow Mr. Keenan's advice. That Ruger Super Redhawk in 480 Ruger looks VERY nice.

awesome hand gun

I have owned a JP Sauer n Sohn/ Haws western Marshall in 44 Magnum since April 1976. After using it for a number of years I found it to be quite accurate and used it in competition. One time and one time only in the past 30 years I fired 6 rounds in one hole at an NRA competition with it. I would suggest a beginner could use this firearm in a learning competition. Or just out playing around.

Herter's sold the very good Hawes .44 and .357 mag revolvers for $47 under their own name as the "PowerMag" model in '67. That was cheep even at the time!
