The S&W .38 Chiefs Special Airweight "Pre-Model 37" was the lightweight version of the all steel .38 Chiefs Special "Pre-Model 36". The 5-shot revolvers were fitted with either a 2 or 3 inch barrel, built on either a round or square butt alloy frame, early models were also fitted with alloy cylinders, were blue or nickel finished, and chambered in .38 Special. This 1954 vintage gun is as described and is fitted with a 2 inch barrel, steel cylinder, and is blue finished. The gun is in excellent original condition, retaining 95-97% of its original blue/black finishes, with some thinning on the muzzle of the barrel and the sharp edges of the cylinder and frame. The trigger and hammer retain all of their original color case-hardened finishes. The grips are in fine condition, retaining most all of their original finish, with assorted handling marks. The bore is bright and the action is tight. Nice early Chiefs Special Airweight. PRICE: $525 We are Antique & Modern Firearms in Lexington, KY, dealer of fine firearms since 1974.
