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 very good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
While the original finish is still very good, it has a fair amount of light surface rust all over from sitting in storage, which can easily be cleaned off.
The original wooden grips are still perfect.
Comes in its original cardboard box.
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.
