So the post for today is a Savage Worlds weapons post inspired by Special Agent Murphy of the New York Field Office, circa 1975.
Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief’s SpecialCaliber: .38 Special
Cost: $200, Speedloader $8
Notes: AP1, Double-Action, Revolver
The Model 36 is a typical “snub-nosed” revolver seen in holsters of many plainclothes law enforcement officers. Known as a “five-shot” among agents, it was an approved weapon for carry by the FBI until revolvers were finally disallowed in the mid-2000s. The stats above work for either the standard 1.875″ barrel or 3″ barrel versions. The Model 36 was introduced by S&W in 1950, and is still in production.
