Inherited S&W Model 36
Hi guys. I went all through this thread hoping to find some info on a pistol I inherited. Its stamped a model 36 with a 2" barrel. It has a round butt and what I am assuming are diamond grips (diamond cross cuts and large diamond shap where screw inserts). The serial number has me puzzled. The inside on the grip on the left has 35xxx. Just above it is what looks to be a 9 that is in a sideways orientation. 35xxx is also located just in front of the cylinder with a R stamped below it. On the bottom of the grip is 237xxx.
Any help would be appreciated. Also if anyone knows what kind of loads I can fire out of this safely would also be apprecated.
