I bought one of these a couple of years ago, in unfired condition. I changed out from the original grips to something I like better, but have kept it unfired. They are classic little guns.

I am just getting into the j-frames and that is a beauty. Congratulations and as already stated, nice to see it has a home where it will be appreciated.
J-Frames are excellent "belly guns" for self defense.
I bought my first Model 36 in 1972 as a BUG and an Off Duty Gun, paid $72.00 for it.
The last Model 36 I bought was a round butt, three inch that I gave $350.00 for a few months ago.
Great guns for what they are intended for. I still take the first one I bought out and shoot it on occasion.
I have about twenty J-Frame Smiths now. I plan on giving one to each of my grandchildren and Children when I buy the Farm.
I bought a 2" Model 10-7 round butt the other day. Been snowing where I live so I have been able to get to the range to try it out.
Something about S&W Revolvers that I love, probably because they are the first handguns I carried on duty.
Although I don't do locks on my Smith Revolvers.

That is beautiful, OS. I have to say that when I think of a S&W J-frame, that is exactly what comes to mind - a model 36 with just "enough" holster wear.
Thanks for sharing!
*WARNING - I may or may not know what I am talking about.
Before you carry that gun, get the springs changed.
My J-frame, which is considerably newer, has had 2 springs go, on different ocasions.
The weapon went down hard.
If you are going to carry seriously, make sure the gun is in good shape. Merely because it's a revolver, and a nice one from a company you trust, doesn't mean you should.
You have to trust somethings...but an older J-frame...
Been there, done that. Got the repair bill.
Very very nice 36!...

Nice find, I am a big fan of the classic S&W revolvers. Now let us know how it shoots.
