S&W 36-1 4" bull barrel?

I like the idea of a small-frame .38 with a longer barrel as a house gun or perhaps for belt carry. I have my eye on nice but not NIB S&W 36-1 with a 4" bull barrel. Anybody have any experience with those or any idea how much one might be worth? Cheers, Matthew

36-1 should be a 3" heavy barrel 38 SPL j-frame. They were made with both square butt and round butt. I like mine, nice guns. 3" j-frames have full length extractor rods, are more accurate than 1-7/8ths j's, are more controllable, and the added barrel length means higher velocity.

That would make it difficult to measure!
Contact the sell because I really can't tell by a picture. I really like the M36 with a longer than 2" barrel for HD or carrying on your belt.

I use to love the 3" heavy barrel Model 36. You use to be able to find them for typically a lot less because everyone wanted the shorter snubnose Model 36, Model 40, and the ever popular Model 60. I liked the overall utility of having the longer barrel and the fact that the gun balanced better to me with the extra weight out front.

When I carried a 38 Special, the Model 36-1 was my choice for plainclothes. The 3" barrel balanced better and gave me a longer sight radius. It was also good in PPC competition.
