i am looking to see if anyone would be interested in a thread all about SNUBNOSE REVOLVERS. perferablly under 2.5 inches but i guess we can stretch it to 3. Smiths, Rugers ect... what you have, what you would like to have, what you carry, how you carry it ect.. i really love J-Frames and carry one every day. after the holidays i am hoping to aquire a pre lock model 36 nickel plated or a nicely blued model 49. i love shooting them, reading about them and really like seeing pictures of them. so post pictures of them if you can. maybee this thread can connect someone with the belly gun they have been searching for.

Here's a couple.

I have many J frames and a small pile of 3 inch K frames.

The J frames are good pocket guns, 'third guns' in the winter for jacket pocket carry, and Fit well in a Galco Ankle Glove.

With my (Injured) feet I can't wear more than an airweight there for long.

Damn.
Do you have a list of topics that are acceptable? BTW. Is seeking out newcomers and crapping in their threads a Frat House kind of thing, or do you do this just for your own amusement?

this is not meant to compete with the 642 club which is where your link takes me. i really enjoy that club and i am subscribed to it, post in it, and have spent a great deal of time in it. i was hoping to start something a little more broad. all makes of snubs old and new. i really enjoy THR and even though i have not been a member for very long, i plan to be. if something like this has already been done recently i apologise. like i said, i'm pretty new here but share the same interests as many of you.

It's not a Smith & Wesson, or a Ruger, but a Charter Arms Undercover 38 from the 70's...maybe 80's I guess. The grips are from current production Charters and fit perfectly.

Eh, what's the point of a discussion board if things can't be ... discussed. I'll play too.

I've got two snubnoses, both Colt Cobras. The 2" nickel .38 (it appears the only pic I have is the one from the day I bought it) is what I have with me when trailering horses, and the 3" .22 is my practice gun and also what I used to qualify for my CCW; I was the only one in class using a revolver! The .38 was made in 1959, and I think the .22 was made shortly thereafter, but I haven't looked up the serial number yet.

Sorry for the small size, I can't seem to figure out how to post larger photos without them being too large.

I don't have any photos stored in this computer, so that will have to come later. If we are including 3" guns, my most notable snubby, due to its rarity, is a 3" GP100 with adjustable sights, which is my avatar on another forum. Admittedly, it is a safe queen for now.

My working snubbies are SP101s, which have ridden in everything from Alessi Ankle Holsters to an Andrews Monarch shoulder rig, but usually at belt level in Sparks PMK holsters, Galco Concealables, or Kramer or Haugen crossdraw holsters, and latter normally used for appendix-position carry, not in the crossdraw position. To be clear, I wear one gun faithfully in the "strong" side hip position, but the secondary will rove around a bit, depending upon clothing; yes, I often tote two handguns.

In the past, I used J-frames more, and regrettably, many were traded away before I learned better than to do that. I still have an "M460" enclosed-hammer J-frame, made when many Performance Center guns were given their own model numbers, and a no-dash M40. Yes, I like my Centennials.

My first snubby, now long gone, was a 1983-ish S&W Model 60. Like many of the Bangor Punta-era guns, it was not well put-together, which turned me off to J-frames for several years.

My second snubby was a Model 66, acquired in 1984 as part of a special deal for police academy cadets, along with my Model 686 duty sixgun. A rather rough gun, it didn't stay around long, either.

My most unusual snubby was an S&W Model 25-2 Effector, in .45 ACP, part of a special run made for distributor/dealer John Jovino in the mid-1980's. This was before I realized that N-frames are really too big for my hands; I could never shoot it fast and well in double-action mode. This one was sold or traded away long ago.

Thanks! I made that and the grips myself, the grips from red oak, the adapter from something else, I'm not sure what it was, it was in a wood scrap bucket.

Believe it or not, getting the grip adapter properly mounted to the grip is the easy part, getting the shape and thickness right is the hard part. Lots of sanding and filing to get it just right.

Nothing against the work you did but I thought it was more fun in it's "original" configuration.

Especially the cylinder release.

RevolvingGarbage, You have improved the gun markedly, but I think I agree with Guillermo - the before photo has an ugly charm all its own. It's what we around here would call a "river gun" (a gun you could dispose of in the river without crying too many tears).

I love the electrical tape grips and the case-rim cylinder release!

Bobbing the hammer is a distinct improvement. What did you use to refinish the gun? Do my eyes deceive me, or is that an old RG?

I do love the new grips you've made. Those are seriously sharp grips.

I used to have a Colt D.S. with Hogue finger groove grips. Then my wife "confiscated" it. If I'm good, she lets me take it to the range about once a year.

RevolvingGarbage
December 8, 2010, 08:39 PM
The "re-finish" in this case was a "remove finish". It is indeed an RG, an RG40 to be exact. The guns frame is zinc alloy, and if you remove its finish, it shines up like nickle at first then fades to a dull grey as its exposed to air. I thought about trying to paint it, but I decided I like the dull grey color, and it fits the gun well.

I liked the case head cylinder release also, but I lost the original when the screw came loose and it fell of in the woods one day. Ive attempted making a new one a few times and whenever I'm almost done with the dremel work, I mess up and the bit marrs up the case head. This has happened to me twice now!

The thumb-piece I have on it now I also made myself. Its cut off a solid aluminum block, drilled through with the dremel, and then filed and sandpapered to shape.

Here are my 3.
S&W Model 60 no dash 2", .38 Special. Never fired with the original box and stuff. I can't decide if I'm ever going to shoot it or not.

Very nice 19s. I can see the handwriting on the wall and a 19 in my future.
BTW I would get a 442 or some such and not shoot the 60...but then why not? Somebody probably will someday, may as well be you. They shoot real nice, I have one in the family.

I'm starting to think I want a cheap 22 lr revolver. I own a glock 22 and a 642. I have found the revolver very enjoyable to shoot. 5 round through the 642 are more fun than 15 through the glock. Anyway I want something cheap for plinking, target shooting, snake and rat killing that kinda thing. My grandfather had a 22lr revolver when I was growing up and I have no idea what happened to it. So any suggestions on an inexpensive 22lr revolver, I prefer snub nosed if I can find one. Really dont care what it looks like as long as it fires.

Got my mika pocket holster today. Wow that sucker is well made!

Wow you guys are a bunch of trouble makers. Now I have to go to the local gun shops and spend money on a snub nose and I'm gonna get in trouble with the wife. Thanks a lot.

SpaceExplorer31,... just remember.. it is easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission. good luck. pick yourself out something nice.
