This is a discussion on My Newest Addition S&W Model 37 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; On a whim, I placed a bid on this and won this little beauty. Didnt think I was going to win. Gotta love those surprises. ...
Is that a square butt? Don't think I've seen a 37 with a square butt before.

I like it.
To be honest, I've never heard of a mod. 37, so I wikipedia'ed it.
Smith & Wesson Model 36 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1951, Smith & Wesson introduced the Airweight Model 37, which was basically the Model 36 design with an aluminum frame and cylinder. The aluminum cylinders proved to be problematic, and was abandoned in favor of a steel cylinder

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn
From the Smith Bible:
Early models 5 screw, now 4 screw J frame. Chiefs Special Airweight. Produced 1952-present? The only Smith revolver not available with a lock. BAH! Alloy frame and cylinder to serial 44577, then switched to steel cylinder due to failures. 2" barrel round or square butt (only 900 square butts...congrats), 3" barrel square butt only. "Airweight" should be marked on the barrel. If not, you have one of 10 remaining stolen "Baby Aircrewman" from the Air Force worth a few G's....I see "Airweight"...too bad...
Sweet buy, I had never heard of a Model 37 until the gun show last weekend. I asked the dealer what the difference between the Model 36 and the Model 37 his comment was I’ll show you and with that he dropped it in my hand, amazing a Model 36 that has been on a serious diet.
