    3" 44 spl 24-3 picked up at GB last week. Been looking for awhile. Very nice example. One of the mid 80s Lew Horton.

    Somehow I think a 3" barrel is the perfect size for carry - a balance between form and function; a S&W Model 36-1, 3" bull barrel. Here are two better photos of the gun:

    I also have a 3" model 36-1. I bought it still NIB about 14 years ago. Outside of my pocket pistols, I carry it the most when I carry a holstered gun under a untucked shirt. I had the hammer spur some how break off so filed it smooth and cold blued it.
    Really, for comparison, I also own a s&w model 66-3 in 3" lew horton performance center one of three hundred and a 2 1/2" python.. When I carry that one I usually carry .38 specials in it anyway instead of .357`s. I more often carry the 3" J frame 36 as it also has the 3" barrel and weigh`s about half as much. In the real world that makes more sense to me.

    Mine has more finish, but I guess I could let it go for that.

    Shipped 1873 to who? M. W. Robinson, NYC, of course. It is stuning how Robinson wrote S&W after hearing about their new 44, to basically say "I want to buy 25,000 of these right now"!!

    Frontier double action 6-inch barrel in, of course, 44-40. Probably factory engraved (waiting on letter) and with eagle carved MOP stocks.

    It ain't like it used to be, but it'll do.

    Hiya Levalois! I like that S&W here just as much as on the Fedora Lounge!
