The Model 36 (38 Chiefs Special) was produced from 1950 to 1999. This was the first snub-nosed gun to re-appear after 1945, built on a small 'J'-frame with a barrel of 2 or 3 inches and a rounded butt. A square butt option was introduced in 1952. Blued or nickel finish and checkered walnut grips were standard. Smith & Wesson re-introduced this revolver as part of their 'Classics' series in 2008.
Developed by Smith & Wesson and introduced along with its Military & Police Model revolver in 1902, this was originally a military cartridge intended to replace the unsatisfactory .38 Long Colt then in use by the Army. Colt brought out its own version of the .38 Special in 1909, which differs from the original only in bullet shape, being a flat-point style. The .38 Special is considered one of the best-balanced, all-round handgun cartridges ever designed. It is also one of the most accurate and very widely used for match shooting.
