Lucky for me I have been able keep the lever bug away.

But the 22LR bug is about to break me. I will be doing some picture taking in near future of some nice new to me stff I have collected in the last 3 or 4 months.

Got another one:

Model 15-4
91K7XXX


My mother in law asked me to keep this in my safe last year, it was her fathers. She gave it to me yesterday for christmas, it is pristine. You can barely see a line on the cylinder if you hold it just right, other than that; looks unfired.

1981 for the gun.

Model 36,J18xxx.It has a pinned barrel which with what I've read means (I have no idea if it's true) it was made before 1983.Can the 36's fire +p ammo?

I wouldn't fire any +Ps thru it. As for it's age? It's a little older than mine judging by your "J" serial number and it only being 5 digits long. I'm gonna guess yours is probably around 1969-1970. Mine is probably a year or so behind yours (1971-73).

We'll see what Chuck's book says.

It's actually 6 digits long.You really think it's that old?The thing pretty much looks brand new.I went and shot it the other day and didn't put any +P's through it,though I did have some pretty hot standard .38's that I fired.

Since you said it was SIX digits long (like mine) it's probably gonna be an early 70's model. I know my model 10-5 is a 1976 model, and your model 36 is a NO DASH like mine...right?

Nope,no dash.I picked it up for $325.00 and it's REALLY clean.I didn't get the box or papers though.The grips have been replaced with Hogue rubber grips too.

I gave $350 for mine and it's kinda ruff.

That didn't matter. The finish doesn't affect how it fires anyway.

The following per the SCSW 3rd. ed.-

The pinned barrel was eliminated on the Model 36 in 1982. Serial numbers for J1-J99999 ran from 1969-1970.

I can't find anything specifically about shooting Plus P ammo in your 36, probably because I am not looking hard enough, but plus P ammo would probably cause excessive wear to the gun. Personally, I haven't seen the need to "pump up the volume." Heck, just shooting standard 38 specials in my model 36 starts to slap my hand after firing several cylinders.

It is a nice little gun with a full size punch.

If it is J100000-J250000 it would be from 1973-74.

That's a dead ringer for mine...just not as beat up as mine is.

And mine's not really THAT bad. You can just tell it's seen a lot of presentations in it's lifetime.

Oh if those old guns could talk, huh?

My pleasure!

You have a fine example of a S&W firearm. You have made a good choice.
