During World War II, pilots carried aluminum framed Smith & Wesson and Colt Revolvers known as the Air Crewman. The popularity of the Air Weight series continued after the war, as veterans and civilians alike demanded and carried the popular Smith & Wesson Chief's Special Airweight, Centennial Airweight, and Bodyguard Airweights in .38 Special caliber from the 1950s onward, with increasing demand for stainless finished pocket guns. It was not until the Millennial Year, however, that Smith & Wesson introduced its first .357 Magnum Air Lite, weighing in at only 12 ounces empty. The company achieved this new level of a combination of light weight and Magnum power by designing an aluminum and scandium alloy frame fitted with a stainless flame shield on the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel's forcing cone, and producing the cylinder out of titanium. This, then, is the descendant of the 37 and 637 variants more than it is of the model 60. S&W Product Code is 163064. Specs are traditional single and double action revolver, 1 7/8 inch two-piece barrel with scandium alloy shroud holding a steel liner, transfer bar internal safety with Smith & Wesson patented internal hammer lock and two keys; High Visibility Orange Dot Front Sight and Fixed Notch Rear Sight; Hogue Bantam S&W Logo pliable rubber boot grip; .312 smooth combat MIM case colored trigger with .240 semi-target hammer of the same material; 1.59 inch fluted titanium cylinder.
