ok well we have come to conclusion that the wife can't draw back the slide on a semi auto and is too small for a shotgun. we took a venture to the gunshop and she fell in love with the feel and appearance of this older s&w. I'm not quite sure of the model it has what I believe is a 1 1/2 inch barrel. chambers are clean barrel is clean overall good shape. chambered in .38spl wood handle and has what the dealer called a flat latch release. anywho I don't know much about revolvers but the wife loves this one. what would be a good price range for this gun?
Sounds like a S&W model 36 Ladysmith or Chief's Special, can't be certain. That being the case, new they can run into the $500 range. A decade old or so maybe $400 is reasonable from a reputable dealer. Sorry I can't be certain.
