    S & W Model 36-1 ( Pics )

    Hey guys, figured I would share a new find of mine today. Wasn't lookin but it found me. I've been to a couple of local dealers in the past couple of days and haven't really seen anything that I couldn't live without. Wasn't really shopping for one just lookin and killin time while I was off work. I came across 2 Smiths this last dealer had. A model 10-6 with Houge grips in about 85% condition. And this one a model 36-1 with a 3'' heavy barrel and flat cylinder latch. I'm know Smith experts but I do know what I like. It felt good in my hand, fairly light weight, small easy to conceal grips, and a 3'' heavy barrel that has already proven to be accurate. I got it for 350.00 and its in about 85% condition. So how did I do, honestly. I don't really care because I wanted it. But I am curious.

    I seen in the dealers book were the 36-1 with 3'' heavy barrel started in 1967- 1994. Could any of you Smith experts give a closer manufacturers date? The serial # is J185XXX. I would very much appreciate it.






    The model 10-6 almost came home with me also. He said he would let me have it for 395.00 since buisness was slow and he hadn't sold much in the past couple of days. The serial # prefix was D210XXX. Is 395.00 to much for this gun?

    I figured anytime you could purchase a good old prelock Smith in 80% condition or better for 350.00 you were doing good.

    There is something about a 3" Barrel in any S&W that just grabs your attention. Interesting Flatlatch...!!!

    I think you did well on the price {Az. pricing}
    J185XXX would be '73-'74

    Nice find, if you like it, and who would not, you paid a good price.

    The flat latch on the gun is not original to the gun. They came with the dished latches in that time frame.

    I am another fan of the 3" barrel on Smith's. $350 would be a great price compared to most of what I see in this area.
    I can not abide useless people.

    Nice find on the M-36-1. I would be skeptical about paying $395 for the very common M-10. Offer him $100 less, and don't go any higher, if it's in "very good conditon" (NRA rating). Bob

    I love the 36-1.



    My Sam-Damewood-customized one is probably my favorite revolver.
