I agree that the 357 would not be very popular in the no 1 for the average hunter and that is perhaps why they are on the market more often rather than stashed away in some hunter's closet or under their bed.
My thinking on over runs quantities has to do more with manufacturing processes. I would think that they would start the number of guns based on the quantity needed plus some allowance for scrap. If scrap rate is low than over runs are made to use up the parts. Thus I would think that the number would be In the range of 10% or so of the original intended quantity. So if there were 1800 CHP guns made than the 180 - 200 over runs make some sense. The fact that they are not popular with the average hunter makes them more available. One thing for sure is that they probably won't make any more of them...

There's one of the CHP No.1's on Gunbroker now asking $2,100 for it. Seems pretty steep to me. Here's the link to it. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/822307790
