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.

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?
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.

I might try to find some wood ones but the rubber ones are soooo much nicer for shooting.Actually,those aren't even the rubber Hogues.I forgot that I swapped the grips around with my 642 grips.The 642 needs some rubber ones with its light weight and +P ammo.Just a bit jumpy.Some woods for the 36 would be great for presentation,that's for sure.Maybe I'll check Gunbroker for some.
