Longer than Ruger at 6.5"

Something like their Super .44 in 10" or their 22 convt in 9.5".....but in .357?

Man, that's going to be a very heavy barrel. Seriously man. Ruger gave up on 7.5" 357 Vaqueros for a reason.

You need to look at a Freedom arms model 83 made for silhouette Shooting . I have one with a 9.5 inch barrel . Freedom arms are among the strongest and most accurate revolvers EVER made . They dont come cheap though . I have never owned any revolvers that could compete with accuracy of my Freedom arms. If you look around the net you will find loads safe for the Fa 353 that would destroy some of the other high quality .357s made .

I am sure your friendly, neighborhood gunsmith could set you up. For sure you'd have a one-of-a-kind piece. It's something I've thought about many times. That's why I ended up with one of those 10.5" .44s and I had a 9.5" .22 until someone stole it. Yes, it's muzzle-heavy, but that's a good thing, to me.
