Hey all, I just came from a local fishin hole and spotted a nice 36-1 w/ a 3" tube, serial number 462XXX w/ factory diamond magnas. Now my question is this: I swear that this gun had a RB, but if I am reading SWCA correctly, only the 2" barrel had the round butt. Any ideas? Thanks.

I left my SCSW3 at work.. Sorry.
I can never get the models strait... not to be blasphemous, but that is the Chiefs special, right?

F150, you are correct. It is a Chief's Special.

Giz, never mind about this one. You need to keep your money for Saturday's show. ;)

Went fishing again without me? Now I see how you are..... :cool:

The "-1" pertains to the Heavy Barrel.

These were available in either round or square butt....

However, looking at the serial number tables, that number may be before the 1967 date wherein the -1 began. Look carefully at the shape of the grind when the the barrel rib meets the frame.

The Diamond stocks may actually be correct.

Drew,

Don't think of it as fishing without you. Think of it as a scouting mission. :lol: Actually, I was scouting. Ben and I were checking on a new place to dip smelts. This place is an early run, so I'm thinking another week or two and we'll be eating well. ;)

Thanks for the info on the CS. I'll keep you posted.
