    If you open the cylinder the model # should be stamped there, something like Mod. 36-1 or 37 if it's the lightweight version. There's probably also a meaningless assembly #.

    The only marking upon opening the cylinder is 089 stamped on the mast that holds the cylinder. I googled Smith and Wesson model 36 and found several guns that look exactly like mine on youtube. Model 36 Chief's Special J frame revolver. The only difference is my hammer has been bobbed. Thanks for your help guys.

    You're absolutely right! It says MOD. 36-2 although it is a bit more obscure than your photo.

    Perfect, you have yourself a great gun! However, you'll find it addicting, it was for me as I started this illness with a Chief's Special about 10 years older than yours, welcome aboard! Blackcloud2

    Hello from Texas! I also am looking for info about my gun. I have a .38 special model 10-7, tapered barrel, Square butt. I tried looking it up by serial#AAN3821, but I got a message that said: "The serial number that you have entered is not valid for this Consumer Advisory" This gun is a police turn-in. Does that affect my search results? I would like to find out info like when was the original issue date and possibly the LEA that used it. And, also the date of end of service. Is all that possible?

    I think AAN3821 left the factory in late 1982. No clue how you might find answers to the rest of your questions.
