    I just picked up a beautiful 2" S&W "flat latch" model 36 with S/N: 336XXX
    Its a factory blued, square butt, pinned barrel model in 'bout 96% N.R.A.
    condition for only $175~! ;) Pics will be forthcoming, shortly. :D

    Being that I'm not near my books, can someone please chime in and tell
    me when it was manufactiered? Many thanks in advance for your efforts~!

    About 1962-'63.

    As for myself, I wouldn't want anybody to know that I had it. :what:

    Why it isn't even chambered in .357 Magnum, and using Plus-P .38 cartridges is suppose to be questionable. Worse then that, it isn't made of stainless - so it will rust if you even look at it.

    And look at the lockwork - it's old stuff, and not the kind of precise parts that are made today using ultra-modern MIM technology.

    The barrel is fitted so poorly that they had to stick a pin in the back to keep it from falling off.

    Why would anyone want a gun with checkered (genuine) walnut stocks when you can get black, molded rubber?

    Well you bought it so you're stuck with it.

    Some people have all the luck... :evil: :neener: :D

    Many thanks my friends~! No Sir- Not me, as I did not rob anyone really. :uhoh:

    You see, we have this so called "SALE" going on at my workplace
    right now, and lots of really nice guns gets traded in on the newer
    stuff. Not sure what this particular gun brought in trade, but I
    quickly checked the "cost code"; in order too see what I could
    but it for~? Boss said, "Oh-bout $175 + tax". I said, NO PROBLEM
    here, no I snatched it up; but I have to complete the 4473 paper
    work next week; so the gun is still in my employers safe for the
    time being~! :eek: ;)
