I have just bought a Smith & Wesson's revolver, Model 31-1. It is a J frame, square butt, 3" barrel model. I have been searching the internet for a suitable laser sight for it and cannot locate one.:banghead: Are accessories for it available (as it is an old model)?:confused:
I am also looking for a horizontal shoulder holster and hip holster in leather (RH) and speed loaders for it.
As I am from India, I will need to buy the articles over the net and ship them to my brother in the USA so he can bring them to India when he does travel here.
I will be most grateful to anyone who can help locate a source/ dealer.

What caliber and how many shots is this model?

Welcome to THR! Its always great to hear from gun enthusiasts in other countries.
The only laser sight for a J frame S&W that I can think of is the Crimson Trace (http://www.crimsontrace.com/Home/Products/SmithWesson/tabid/199/Default.aspx) laser grip, and unfortunately they do not make a model for a square butt. As far as holsters go, I would think any holster for a 3" J frame would work. You might be out of luck with the speedloaders though, I checked HKS' sight and they don't list them for that caliber/model.
"Lone", here's (http://cosmolineandrust.blogspot.com/2007/09/sunday-smith-16-model-31-1-1971.html) a write up from the lovely Tamara on the 31.

A six-shot .32? :)
Try the HKS 32-J. (http://www.hksspeedloaders.com/SpeedloaderPage.html) It says it is for the J frame in .32 H&R Mag., but this is nothing more than an elongated .32 S&W Long. I think this one might work. The left grip might have to be relieved (a portion cut away) for clearance.

Yeah, that one should work. I missed it. :o

Is a j frame .32, 6 shot revolver, 3" barrel considered to be a small medium or large frame. Uncle Mikes has some holsters but I can make up my mind about the S M or L aspect of it

A J-frame is a small-framed revolver by just about any definition of such things.
