Now you can own a piece of history with a revolver from the Smith & Wesson Classics line. The Classics bring timeless and coveted models back in production. Each model, known for its legendary performance, has been enhanced with modern advantages. Smith & Wesson Classics embody the best of both worlds.

This small revolver, designed primarily for plainclothesmen and off-duty police officers, made its public debut at The International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in 1950.  At the conference, the Smith & Wesson sales force asked the police chiefs to vote on a name for the new revolver.  The most commonly suggested name was .38 Chief’s Special®.  Designed with the needs of law enforcement officials in mind, the Chief’s Special proved to be a popular revolver for personal protection due to its size and weight. When Smith & Wesson adopted model numbers in 1957, the Chiefs Special became the Model 36.

Smith & Wesson J-Frame revolvers have had your back since 1950.  These small revolvers were designed to fire full power rounds and are as simple and easy to use as they are reliable.  Available in various calibers and with three diverse hammer designs, it is no surprise that the Smith & Wesson J-Frame has become the most popular, small-frame, defense revolver on the market.
