model 58 Vs Model 59

Postby Bulldog1 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 9:40 pm

Hello, I am looking at a couple of old Bryco's and after looking at the Model 58 and 59 I was wondering what is the difference other
than Barrel and slide length. From looking on Numrich it appears that most part interchange. so does anyone know of any other difference's.
and would it be possible to put the barrel out of a Model 59 into a Model 58 or could I just change the slides in order to thread the end of the barrel that is exposed.

As far as I can tell, the only difference is the barrel length and slide length; with the 58 being the shorter of the two.

In theory, you should be able to swap barrels; the only thing you'd need to consider is the location of the barrel pin aligning correctly in the frame.

So a long barrel Bryco that somebody threaded might be an option. I wonder what the outside diameter of the barrel is, like if it would accommodate a conventional thread pitch die.

Model 58 and Model 59 do appear to have different die markings... but I don't have a Model 58 to compare against. :(

thanks for all the great replies. What I was thanking of taking on as a project is a threaded barrel Model 58 in 380 ACP. It is basically
just because I have not seen one before, have a can and think it would be a cool project. The other option for a project like this would be
a Model 38 with a shortened model 48 barrel but I prefer the idea of the Model 58 in 380.
