About Smith & Wesson Model 36 - 2"

Smith & Wesson, also known as S&W, Smith Wesson or SW, is a producer of various firearms based in the United States. It has quite long tradition in manufacturing of high quality firearms of a worldwide success. Its corporate headquarters is based in Springfield, Massachusetts in the USA.

The Smith & Wesson Model 36 (Also known as the "Chiefs Special") models of "J-frame" Smith & Wesson revolvers. It was introduced in 1950, and is still in production. The  Model 36 Ladysmith was designed in the era just after World War II, when Smith & Wesson stopped producing war materials and resumed normal production. For the Model 36 2 Inch, they sought to design a revolver that could fire the more powerful .38 Special round in a small, concealable package. Since the older frame was not able to handle this load, a new frame was designed, which became the new frame for the SMith Wesson 36 2 Inch . The new design was introduced at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) convention in 1950, and was favorably received. ] A 3 in (76 mm)-barreled version design went into production immediately, due to high demand. It was available in either a blued or nickel-plated finish. It  became the S&W; Model 36 Airweight.
