    Smith and Wesson 337 snub 38

    I saw this used at a gun store today. I think I want to get a snubbie eventually, probably the LCR, but can't help but check out used guns to save a few bucks. This was a hammered snub, much like a 637, but I'm not sure what a 337 is and it doesnt seem to be on their website. Anyone know about this snubnose and how does it compare to a 637?

    There is a blurb on the 337, about half way down.

    The 337 was the Airlite Chief's Special (scandium frame/titanium cylinder), they were extremely light - 10.8ozs empty, if I recall. Great for carrying, not much fun to shoot if you're recoil sensitive. They're not made anymore.

    The 637 is an Airweight Chief's Special, basically the same gun with an aluminum alloy frame and stainless steel cylinder, weighs about 15.5ozs.

    6 (640, 638, 642, 637, etc.)....stainless or stainless finish.
    4 (438, 442, etc)....black finish.
    3 (340, 337. 342, 360, etc)....scandium frame, and possibly titanium cylinder.

    Makes it easier to identify in some occasions.

    Something that light is NOT fun to shoot and in the end guns are about shooting. I'd look at something a bit heavier. Good Luck!
