Smith & Wesson .38 Chiefs Special Target 'Model 50' Circa 1961
If you are a collector of hard to find Smith & Wesson pistols, then you will want to take a close look at this little beauty! ‘Dirty Harry’ is happy to offer you this gorgeous 1961 Smith & Wesson .38 Chiefs Special Target (Serial # 149921), also known as the Smith & Wesson Model 50. This is a very scarce Smith & Wesson revolver that was made in limited numbers and was never even officially cataloged. They were produced sporadically in small batches between 1955-1975. Built on the square-butt J-frame w/ three screws, flat-latch cylinder release and chambered for .38 Special, this rare revolver is very similar to the famous Model 36 Chiefs Special but was built w/ Target sights. It wears the 2” pinned barrel w/ a tall serrated ramp front sight and has a fully adjustable rear sight. Rated @ a strong 99%, overall condition is very close to ‘NEW’ throughout. The factory original bright blue finish is simply gorgeous w/ very little signs of handling whatsoever, and the factory original square-butt stocks are in excellent condition and are numbered to the gun. The hammer & trigger both show strong vivid case colors. All mechanical functions are perfect w/ tight lockup & accurate timing. The bore is likewise excellent w/ sharp, bright rifling. It resides in an original blue S&W two-piece box, which includes the original S&W cleaning tools. According to Smith & Wesson historian Roy Jinks, this revolver was shipped on March 13, 1961, and delivered to H.H. Harris Co. in Chicago, IL. Again, any avid collector of Smith & Wesson revolvers or lovers of rare J-frames will certainly appreciate this awesome 1961 Smith & Wesson .38 Chiefs Special Target pistol.
