Default Mod .36 Chiefs Special question

I have a mod -36 serial numb 287xxx. Can anyone help give a date and possible value? It says .38 S.&W. SPL on barrel and the length is 1 7/8.

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully someone will be by to narrow the timeframe a bit. I'm thinking early to mid 61. I'd say $300-500 depending on your location.

It looks like the revolver was made in 1953

With SN 287000, I would guess early-mid 1962. Perhaps in the $350-400 range, depending on the exact condition. Hope this is helpful.

Welcome aboard from Wyoming.

I believe murphydog pegged it.

Has the hammer been shortened or reshaped? Or is it just the photo?
