S&W 36 Chief .38 Spl 2 in Blue G-VG 1981  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: Here is a tight, solid little steel frame Chief’s Special from President Reagan’s Inaugural Year of 1980. It has, like many of its peers, been shot a little and carried a lot. This one was a Texan’s floorboard piece when he made the mistake of running afoul of the Department of Public Safety. It has extensive strong original bluing, more prominent on its left side than on its right, with moderate external scuffing and spotting. While there are similar tiny areas on the cylinder surface, the grip frame backstrap is most conspicuous for its light rust residue. Hammer and trigger retain strong original color casehardening to their finish despite extensive spotting on their surfaces. From the looks of the cylinder face, and from the negligible blast effect visible above the forcing cone, this revolver has likely not been fired more than 50 times. Bore and cylinder chambers are bright, clean, and excellent. Replacement Sile rubber grips are appropriate for the 1980s, and probably produced shortly after the revolver was. Lateral play or wobble effect to the cylinder is moderate with the trigger relaxed and negligible with the trigger pulled. The cylinder times well on all five positions, both in single and double action on a very slow pull. This is an eminently serviceable, little-used Model 36 Round Butt 2 inch Blue with no model suffix. With some expert attention, it could resurrect into a very attractive and collectable Bangor Punta Pinned Barrel J-frame as well. We’re offering it for only $ 329.95
