A stainless steel development of the Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief’s Special revolver, the Model 60 has a swing-out cylinder, and features an exposed hammer. The 1965 model’s stainless steel production proved so popular that there was a waiting list at gunshops for up to six months to purchase one. At that time the Model featured a 1.875″ barrel and was chambered solely for the .38 Special. Like the Model 36 (Model 50), S&W produced a limited-production version with adjustable sights, the Model 60-1 Chief’s Special Target.

The new model replaced the .38 Special-only version and is available in either a 2.125″ or a 3″ barrel, with a 5″ barrel introduced in 2005.

Despite the reduction in effective range due to the short barrel and consequently reduced sight radius, the 2″ barrel version is one of the preferred backup and concealed carry weapons for law enforcement officers and civilians alike to this day.
