    What a great forum. I carried wheel guns (Python, Model 19) when I was a patrol officer in the late 1980s, we could not carry semis at that time. All these years later, they just "feel right" to me. Here is my small collection - A Taurus Total Titanium in .44 spl; and a Colt Cobra in .38 spl.

    S&W Model 60...

    Here is my snubbie. Bought it from a friend two years ago for $300. I love this gun!





    Can someone tell me what these numbers stamped on the frame mean?
    Wilson Combat CQB Compact - .45
    Ruger P345 - .45
    Kahr PM9 - 9mm
    S&W Model 60 J-Frame - .38

    Does removing the trigger spur cause missfires due to a light hammer strike?

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    Hi mickey mouse, and welcome to the Forum!

    Supposedly it can. Personally I don't know as I've not removed any hammer spurs (which is what you likely meant). Some few on Internet forums say it will. Seems that most say it won't make any difference. A gunsmith friend who is good with Smith & Wesson revolvers says that a factory spec. main spring will insure reliability with a bobbed hammer.

    Good place to ask this.

    My understanding is .357 mag revolvers also chamber and fire .38 special. If I were to buy a snubby to shoot .38 special exclusively, would it make sense to buy one chambered for .357 mag or one in .38?

    6 of one half dozen of the other. At that point your down to which particular gun you like better or which one you could get for a better price.

    Fair enough. What models would I have to look toward to avoid an internal locking system?

    If you are interested in a S&W J frame , there are guns available with or without the internal lock. Check their site:Product: Model 642 - No Internal Lock

    This 357 model is on sale at my local gun shop for $649 (I know PRICEY but available immediately) and weighs only 13 oz. unloaded http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...-1&isFirearm=Y

    And contact your local dealer with your request for a "non-lock" .

    Good luck finding a no lock, they have go fast. You can always just disconnect the lock if you wish.

    The only problem is that a snub in 357 is either going to cost a lot more, or weigh a lot more. Given a choice, I'd prefer to have the 357 option, but I honestly dont shoot 357 enough out of them to justify the extra cost or weight.

    380, those are some cool pictures. Thanks for adding to the thread.

    So older snubbies and that S&W 642 for a revolver minus the lock. Fair enough, 642s can be found at pretty low prices (just not locally ), and I'm sure I can snag an older snubby for under a few bills at local pawn shops. The more I think about it, the more I get the feeling it'll be a snubby that ends up being my "date gun" instead of a small auto...

    the older model 36/60 are good guns. i carry a old model 60 with a "bobed" hammer and the clip draw belt clip. hard to beat and no dumb lock. you can take out the lock on the new guns. that is you can cut off the tap that locks. not hard to do.

    There is no need to cut off anything. The lock assembly is fairly easy to remove and only takes about 10 minutes time.
