Serial number for this S&W .38 Chief’s Special Stainless, numbered model 60 with no suffix, has a BAU letter prefix, so it was manufactured early in 1988. It comes to us from the Estate of Gibson County Tennessee’s original cable guy, who installed and traded until his retirement in the early 1990s. This is a fully traditional Smith & Wesson .38 Chief’s Special Stainless, numbered Model 60. It has no model number suffix. Barrel is 1 7/8, commonly referred to as 2 inch Snub, one piece with integral serrated blade front sight that matches the standard fixed notch rear. Construction is entirely stainless steel, with satin stainless .240 serrated spur service hammer and matching .240 smooth face combat service trigger. Capacity is 5 rounds of .38 Special caliber ammunition. Type is small, J frame double and single action revolver with transfer bar internal safety device, weight empty is 19 3/8 ounces. Grips are period correct Sile Finger Groove Combat. Surface detractions to this 60 are minimal, only faint cylinder rotation marking and two or three small inconspicuous holster contact buffs. We rate it as Excellent, 90 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically. Cylinder times correctly in all five positions on both single and double action. Single action trigger pull measures a crisp 4 1/4 pounds with no felt creep. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel’s forcing cone is negligible, not really distinguishable from the mill marks on that surface. We have not cleaned its cylinder face, and from the absence of any significant amount of carbon deposits, and from our knowledge of its late owner, we do not believe this Chief was fired more than 20 or 30 times.
