Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

Mine was made in early 60's. I don't remember which year. It takes a bit to get used to the flat latch.
::)

I saw mine offered at a South Orlando LGS, I just happened to wander in.
 My gun was a consignment, it appeared unfired in S&W Blue & silver box.
I haggled "down for cash" price and with my CCW permit walked out with it.

That was in January 2010, carried it several years, bought and tried and sold a couple of auto loaders.
And now, full cycle I carry the Mod. 36 again. Revolver is just near fool proof IMHO.

Wow, whatever you have must have missed us!  37 and fair here.

"Mostly sunny, with a high near 55. Breezy, with a northwest wind 13 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph."

And we've had pretty similar weather for the last several days.  I guess we did have a cloudy day in the 40s, and a night where we wondered if it had sprinkled a couple drops.

'Tis 22 and overcast. "Colder. Cloudy. A chance of snow showers in the morning  then snow showers likely in the afternoon. Snow accumulation around 1 inch. Highs in the upper 30s. Temperatures falling into the upper 20s in the afternoon. North wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 60 percent."
Winter is back.  ::)

I'm not sure when S&W went to the rounded cylinder release.
I used to know but the trivia is stored in the dusty confined space in my head somewhere.
My gun dates to 1982, I bought it as a consignment piece about 14 years ago, carried it several years.

Edit...had to look it up  :)

The flat latch was only used on the chief special and its J- frame variants from 1950 until late 1966.
 In 1966 the thumb piece that unlocked the cylinder was replaced by the new concave checkered thumb latch that unlocks the swing out cylinder of the revolvers.

Yes Sir, I'll left side it, and pocket the 36 in the right side.
It will be un-reading on the belt, probably pass for Cell phone case.
My 36 has S&W's classic walnut grips (below) they replaced the OEM Rosewood Manga's

Sorry you are under the weather with Woo Hoo flu, Mog.... hope it's a light case.

I had it just once in June 2022, so far knock on wood I've avoided getting it again.
That looks like my 36, but mine has the flat cylinder release like this.

I recently bought a flat top target from Cimarron. It came in a Cimarron box but was roll stamped Dixie Gun Works. It's a Uberti product.
Woops!  Somebody goofed.  Not very common but I have seen it a few times before, usually caught at Cimarron.  Mike Harvey once told me he was looking over some Henry barrels he had ordered from Uberti and they didn't seem very polished.  Then noticed the Cabelas roll marks.  :)

The bigger issue is how does it shoot?  Sure looks good.

Bought some Winchester LPP from Academy this week for 79.99 /brick. I haven’t seen LPPs in the wild in a while. They had other sizes but no LRP’s. Bought a brick of CCI SRP at a show last month for 80.00 from an older couple. The only primers there.  If you deduct ‘hazmat and shipping’ from those amounts you’re around 50.00 so look at it that way. I hopefully think 50/brick is what it will eventually settle down too.
