    My new snubby

    I picked this up yesterday used from a private party. It is a S&W Model 60 that has been machined to take monclips. It will still take rounds without the clips however so I have the option of speed strips or speed loader, individual loading or moon clips. It also has a bobbed hammer and a nicely tuned trigger. I added on the Eagle Secret Service Rosewood grips. This is one great snubby.

    I have a question about wooden grips...
    My .38 snubby is my IWB CC piece and I fight with the grip screw all the time trying to keep it from rusting from the salt/sweat of my skin. What would that do to wood grips? Warp them?

    I suggest a brass or stainless screw , get one at a hardware store
    and trim to length if necessary.
    If you don't constantly remove your grips - just put some clear
    nail polish on the threads and snug it up.

    All wood contains moisture , and may eventually change shape
    slightly , just make sure whatever finish is on the grips remains intact.

    Very nice gun

    Somebody did a lot of work on that gun, machining it to take moon clips, bobbing the hammer and apparently smoothing the trigger pull. It may be close to the perfect .357 magnum 5 shot snubby, with enough weight from the all steel construction to handle the recoil, but small enough for easy concealment.

    With the hammer bobbed, it appears to be functionally similar to the S&W model 640, the 5 shot, all steel internal hammer revolver.

    Nice gun! & judging by the new J.R. Cigar catelog next to the gun, you're a fellow cigar smoker?
