FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Smith & Wesson Model 36 is a compact, 5-shot revolver chambered in .38 Special, and is one of Smith & Wesson’s most successful and well-known handguns.
It was their first revolver designed around the compact J-frame, and was developed purely to compete against the popular Colt Detective Special snub-nose revolver.
First introduced in 1950, it was originally named the “Chief Special” to appeal to law enforcement markets, but was later changed to Model 36 in 1957.
Modern variants of the Model 36 are still in production today and remain one of the most popular and successful snub-nose revolvers in history.
Most common variants of the Model 36 are snub-nose models with 2″ barrels, but this example has a 3″ barrel, as this was a popular configuration when the firearm was first introduced.
This gun is in fair to good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
There is fair wear around the muzzle and edges of the frame and cylinder. There are also quite a few light scratches on the cylinder and parts of the frame.
Only the original wooden grips are slightly scuffed/scratched.
The revolver does still feel mechanically tight and not excessively shot.
It comes in its original cardboard box with original manual.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, as well as every day concealed carry.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports*:
- IDPA – Revolver division
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
*Even though this revolver could technically be used for these sports, the 5 shot capacity would greatly disadvantage the shooter. This revolver is better suited for self defense.
