Picked up last friday and shot 50 rounds of .357 mag and 50 rounds of .38 spl and I love it! SA is a bit scary as the trigger is so light I can't tell when it's going to fire. But it does teach me to keep my finger off the trigger till I'm ready to shoot.

its a Smith & Wesson Model 36. I believe its a mid-80's model. It has the firing pin mounted on the hammer, no internal lock, but it doesn't have the pinned barrel. They stopped pinning the 36's in 1982 as far as I can tell. Its such a fun gun to shoot though despite everyone saying you can't hit anything with a snubby revolver. i love em

Here's my first wheel gun: A S&W 625-8 PC. Now to find a different set of N frame grips -- anyone use the VZ's? All my 1911's wear them, but I'm not a fan of finger grooves... And maybe a FO front sight... And of course a hoster

My S&W Model 686 CS-1. This gun has a somewhat interesting history...

CS-1 stands for Customs Service. In 1988, the US Customs Service ordered ~ 3500 686 CS-1's in both 3" and 4" barrel lengths. At the time, the 686 was manufactured with what is referred to as a Square-Butt frame.
The Customs Service specs for the CS-1 called for changing the frame on the 686 to what is now referred to as a Round-Butt frame (S&W later changed all 686 frames to this round butt design). They also spec'd an All-Black front sight
which was pinned to the barrel. Finally, the gun received a bead-blasted finish. The Customs Service issued the 4" to uniformed agents and the 3" to plain-clothes agents.

The story continues... S&W manufactured the CS-1 with very tight parts-fitting tolerances, and it wasn't long before agents began to experience an unacceptable number of malfunctions with the gun. It was just fitted too tightly from the factory.
To address the problems, all Custom Service agents were flown in to the FLETC facility in Glynn, GA, for meetings and S&W flew in their gunsmiths to work over all the guns while the agents were there. S&W then stamped each gun with an M on the frame.
This 'fly-in recall' occurred not once, but twice for the CS-1. On the second go through, S&W stamped each frame with a 2M (see pic).

And finally... When the agency decided to switch from revolvers to semi-autos (Sig), ~2000 CS-1's were sold to the agents that were issued them. The remainder, ~1500 CS-1's were destroyed, by order of Janet Reno, US Attorney General
under Clinton (remember her?) to prevent the CS-1 from reaching the civilian market. They have now become somewhat of a collector's piece, especially the 3" model, which I remain on the hunt for.

I learned about the CS-1 when researching the purchase of a 686 as my first revolver on the S&W forum (~ 2 years ago, I was living out of state)... At the time I thought, "Hey that's cool." A few hours later I was actively scanning Gunbroker
for a used No-Lock, Round-Butt 686 (more after-market grip options for RB frames), and I noticed one 686 that looked a little different in the pictures. All the others had a red insert on the front sight... But sure enough, this one
had an All-Black front sight and beaded finish. I asked the seller what Dash his 686 was, and if it had a Round Butt. "It's a No-Dash and it has a Round Butt." THANK YOU SIR! Yes.. I remembered that combination could not possibly be correct,
except in the case of the Model CS-1, BUT I was too afraid to ask the seller if it had a CS-1 stamped on the frame for fear it would tip him off to what he had! Luckly I was the high-bidder at $475 and I just kept my fingers crossed until it arrived at my FFL
and I could inspect the yoke for the CS-1 stamping. YES!!! I was soooo excited! I LOVE his gun, it's a keeper! The trigger is butter smooth and the gun functions like a dream. It's so well fit together it's like a piece of artwork. I'm hoping to shoot
a couple of IDPA matches with it this summer... Now to find the 3" model from another Seller who doesn't know any better!




Yes, Janet, it's a 686 CS-1... And it must burn you up inside that you couldn't destroy all of them, huh? Well that's just too bad, isn't it???

1965 S&W Model 27-2, .357 Magnum, 6" barrel
2013 S&W Model 27-9, .357 Magnum, 6.5" barrel



This century's grips are much better, but I still decided to replace them with a Hogue (N Sq. Butt Rosewood No Finger Groove Stripe Cap Checkered, 29931):



I like those ergonomic "hips" that better fill your palm. I have the same style grips on a Model 17-8 (K-22) we take to the range with the 27-9.

Beautiful!

Too bad they just stick that plain black screw through the grips, with the threads showing out the other side no less. My new Model 27-9 has the same one. But my 1965 27-2 has a matching brass screw with a rounded end that shows no threads. You would think the famed Performance Center could spring for a box of brass screws. Anyway, I put a Hogue grip on the new one, so [/end rant].

Father & son guns:
2013 S&W Model 27-9, .357 Magnum, 6.5" barrel, with Hogue rosewood grips
1993 S&W Model 17-8, .22LR "K-22", 6" barrel, with Hogue rosewood grips



The Nineties K-22 models have a full underlug, which brings the weight and balance a little closer to the big guns. Still looking for a K-38 from that decade.

My son is 12 and the K-22 is for him, but of course he wanted to fire the .357 first chance he got. It rolled his whole body back on his heels, but he liked that so much, he asked me when we're going to get a Model 29 .44 Magnum like the one in those fantastic photos two posts above. <Boom!>

Below is a S&W M520. About 3,000 of these were made in 1980 for the NY State Police but the order was never filled. The only fixed sight N frame in .357 S&W ever made.
