Drool...drool...snubiliscious. I love the old S&W snubbies.
Ok I just got back from the range. Me and a friend shot a hunderd rounds though the thing. My hand hurts when shooting this. I will get some better grips when I get the chance.
Well the gun(or me) shoots better at 25 yards then I thought it would.
Go to CDNN Investments (www.cdnninvestments.com) they have a great selection of grips at very low prices. But remember the shipping charge on your order (not necessarily one item) is a minimum of $10.00 - so you may want to order something more then a single set of grips. That is if you order anything.
Thanks I'll take a look around. What is a good clip on holster for this?
All this talk of 36's made me pick one up today at the gun show! You evil wheel gunners you! I nabbed a real minty one, original box and all the papers plus a set of pachmyr grips for it. Out the door for $250. I didn't think it was a bad buy. I think when I took it home and shot it, I put more rounds through it than had been shot through it in the guns entire life. Beautiful little gun, it doesn't even have wear marks around the cylinder yet I think I can change that though. So who wants to try to date mine for me? ser is J894***. Thanks
I inherited one a couple of years back. I put a set of pachmeyer grippers on mine, it really makes it easier to shoot.
Job, book says yers is a 81.
'Ere's mine. An early 60s flat latch.
Shoots a little off at 50 yards. I know, disappointing right?
Yepper, shoots a little low... But.... even if it might be a sin, it's nothing that a little care and a gentle touch with a file won't take care of. I know snubbies are strictly for close range work, but hey, it'd be nice to be able to consistantly knock over those pesky rams with it I hate having to hold over on it.
P.S. Thanks for lookin'er up!
my only model 36
Over 30 J frames now, 1 model 36.Thanks Lyle and David.My 3 inch RB 1953 or 1954 3 inch RB ...
Well guys I just got my Pachmeyr grips from Midway. Feels so much better. The real test is when I shoot it.
My Mod 36 is S/N J979xxx and I believe it is a 1982 series. Anyone can confirm that?
J979,xxx fits into the 1982 serial number range as reported by Supica and Nahas.
With the standard warning that S&W did not always ship in exact serial number sequence.
Who do you think you're asking? This thread is FOUR YEARS OLD
But, just like the Energizer Bunny, it keeps going and going and going...
I admire the model 36 and the very similar model 60 in stainless. Over the last few months I have stumbled across both a 36 and a 60, unfired in the original box. I bought them both within a month of each other and they make a perfect matched pair. I put on the Altamont grips for the picture, but both came with original S&W stock grips.
Wow! I've got one of each, also. Great guns.
