    S&W Model 36 no dash

    Here's my new score from the local gun shop. Had it on layaway for the past 3 months.

    Model 36 flat-latch with square butt. No idea when this gun was made, but the serial # is 262,XXX. I'm guessing the early 60s.

    The pic makes it look kinda ratty, but it looks great in real life. (Need a better camera and some photography skills).

    Second pic is with my collection of snubbies. Yeah, the 3" GP100 isn't really a snub, but I felt that it needed to be included.

    Nice find.

    I'm starting to find my snubbies are multiplying also... just something sort of classy about them IMO.

    Great find and a good looking gun. Factory polish and blue job is excellent. Those square butt J-Frames are so much easier to shoot than the round butt versions.

    Hard to pin down the exact age of the revolver but early 1960s is right. Serial number 295000 was shipped in 1962.

    That's a sweet looking 36, and that collection isn't bad either!

    Here's my pre-36, from 1956, according to S&W. I do have the original grips, but the CT grips turn it into a sub 2" shooter at 25'. I have the original box too!

    In my (admittedly very inexpert) opinion, the model 36 is the best small revolver ever- great trigger and beautifully put together. My model 36 chief's special (circa 1970) is my carry gun always. Easy to carry, and 100% reliable.
    Good Job!
