old Chiefs Special?
Hi, new to the forums, great stuff here.
I just picked up an older S&W .38 what I believe is a chiefs special. I ran it down to my local gun store and was told it was at least 50 years old and too hang onto it. The serial is 86XX. It still has the old style flat cylinder latch on it, which is a mild pain to use. I need to get it to a gunsmith this weekend to check it out. The double action sticks sometimes and I want to see if it has been pieced together internally. It is nickel finished. Paid $150 at a pawnshop for it. Did I get a good deal?
