In 97% excellent original condition, we have a pretty nifty 1956 production Pre-Model 36 Chief’s Special Revolver in .38 Special. This is the early Flat Latch model that is highly sought after by collectors. One of Smith & Wesson’s most successful firearms of the era, the Chief’s Special was their Answer to Colt’s Detective Special and was a smaller 5 shot snub nose revolver that was easily concealable yet was in a very potent .38 special chambering that was a very effective close range man-stopper. This weapon was often seen in the cop shows and in movies from the 1950’s through the 80’s carried by plainclothes detectives and crooks alike. This curio and relic collectible revolver evokes a lot of nostalgia for these times and will find a very warm place in somebody’s Smith Collection,
