model 36
i have smith and wesson model 36 subnose i want to buy a modern grip so i wana ask if any j frame well fit my gun?

IIRC, there are two types of grips.
Rounded frame and square frame. Look up the model 36 on google images and you will see that some have a rounded grip base and others don't.
Grips for the square frame will fit the rounded.

Yes, standard J frame grips will fit yours- although those are decent grips you have on there.

Open the cyllinder, and look at the part of the frame directly below the barrel- you should see a number like 36, or 36-1, 36-2, etc.

i open it the number is T523 the seller who i bought it from says its brazilian but the frame says its made in usa

A Model 36 is a Smith and Wesson. On the right side, in front of the trigger, and below the barrel, it will say
Made in USA
Marcas Registradas
Smith & Wesson
Springfield, Mass

On the LEFT side, directly below the cylinder release, it will have the S&W logo in a circle, and trade mark, and reg. US pat office

However, I think yours may be a Charter Arms Undercover. That is not a model 36 (J frame is S&Ws designation of that frame size and shape) However, Charter followed the S&W shape pretty closely, and J frame grips should fit. DO NOT expect other S&W parts to fit your gun if it is NOT a S&W.

PS- Your caliber marking may say .38 S&W Special. That is the CALIBER, not the make.

OK- yours is definitely a S&W. The T 523 number- is that stamped on the frame of the gun, or is it on the crane of the gun (part that swings open?)
