    The grips came with it from S&W. They made 300 of these and they were sold only through Camfour.

    Here's my S&W Mod.66 (on the right), 640 (bottom). The 686+ is obviously not a snubbie, but it bullied its way into the picture.

    I have a few snubbies: 642, 640, 60(357), M13 3 inch, M66 2 1/2 inch and the ultimate snubbie, a 629 3 inch. Steve48

    My only snubbie at present is a Colt SF-VI, but I do have my eye on another...a S&W Model 15 Combat Masterpiece Snubnose (if it doesn't sell in the next few months).

    I can only retread a previously posted photo of the snubbies around here.

    The two Colt revolvers, top to bottom:
    Detective Special
    Banker's Special

    The four Smith & Wesson revolvers, top to bottom:
    Chief's Special
    Model 642
    Military & Police
    Model 10

    The old square butt M&P 2-Inch and the round butt Model 10 2-inch are really the best of the bunch.

    Having said that I most often (as in right now) tote a 4-inch Model 10 HB.

    Oh, falcon1;

    The 2-inch S&W Model 15 is the best looking snub-nosed revolver ever made in my view.

    Is that a Model 15, the 2nd from the bottom on the right?

    I don't think so, since it does not appear to have adjustable rear sights...the frame is very close, however.

    Everytime I look at the older snubbies, I think about it being the mainstay of LEO guns back in the day. I couldnt imagine going out hunting bad guys now with just a 5 shot J frame. I carry one from time to time now, but I always have security right behind me lurking in the shadows.

    Reminds me of a story an old timer cop told me a while back. He worked for what is now a very large suburb of Dallas when they only had 5 cops. Their website says that they now have 343 sworn officers for comparison. He told me that he had to walk his beat because they didn't have enough squad cars. Anyway, he told me that he carried a SW wheel gun with less total rounds, including extra speedloaders, than he now carries in one magazine on the Sheriff Dept. But on the flip side, most of the bad guys also carried revolvers back then too. The Police Dept back then was Plano for the locals.

    Time to get this thread back on page 1!

    Like sooooooooo many of my newfound friends, I pocket carry a 642 in a DeSantis Nemesis (waiting for the Mika round-cut pocket holster) loaded with Speer Gold Dot 135gr. +p short barrel rounds, and typically carry 4 rounds in a Bianchi speed strip.

    It did take some SERIOUS range time before I was proficient with it (when compared to my 4" XD40).

    S & W 642, Picked it up today at gunshow. Next is a LaserMax for it. I did not like how the CT fit my hand.
