Description: From right here in Elvisland comes this very attractive, original Smith & Wesson Chief’s Special Airweight Revolver. From its 252000 range serial number, and from specimens we sold that same year, it was manufactured in mid to late summer of 1962. Named model is 37, no suffix.

Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special caliber, not designed for any +P loads. Barrel is 2 inch standard tapered, pinned into the frame. Sights are barrel integral serrated blade front with frame integral fixed notch rear. Cylinder capacity is 5 rounds. Trigger is .240 serrated face, with matching serrated spur hammer.

Dimensions are 1.31 inches cylinder thickness; 6 1/2 inches overall length; 4 1/2 inches height; weight 14 1/2 ounces empty with center of gravity at the trigger. Trigger pulls at 12 pounds vicinity double action, with 5 degrees hammer travel after the cylinder times. On single action, the hammer travels 10 to 15 degrees after the cylinder times, and single action trigger pull is a crisp 4 1/2 pounds. Lateral cylinder play is minimal with the trigger relaxed, and negligible with the trigger fully depressed. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap is a perfect .006.

Grips are original diamond checkering pattern magna type, whose numbers match the revolver’s.
