Default Buying an M36 because itís a 3Ē?

Or because it wears the most beautiful RB grips Iíve ever seen?

Beautiful gun and should be a great shooter. I bought a 1963 square butt M36 3 inch last year and have been very pleased. Shoots to POA at 50 feet with my 125 grain cast bullet handloads. Enjoy!

Very, very nice, Kid. Those grips are gorgeous.

I've grown quite an affinity for the 3" Chiefs.

Be careful, they're addicting.

I would have to break my "no more guns" rule for that one. Nice.

I understand your reasoning. I bought this Model 37 just because it is a 3".

I wish mine were a 3 inch. That extra inch does wonders for accuracy and performance.

My LGS has a 3" 36 in almost new condition but with no box for $550. It's a bit rich for my blood, but it's a pretty gun.
