They're useless for pocket carry.

I love a chiefs special, and prefer it to a hammerless or DAO.

The hammers are internal. They are not capable of grabbing clothing in a draw.

I like shooting double action, so the double action only models 340 and 640 work well for me. In addition, the geometry of the hammer and trigger of the hammerless guns is supposed to be just a bit different, which is supposed to improve the trigger action. I don't know, but I do know that I like mine.

Chiefs Special is what they called the Model 36 before S&W used model numbers. When they made it in stainless in 1965, they called it the Model 60 and there was a waiting list to buy them for the first few years. The M60 was the first production stainless revolver.

Back to the 640 Pro Series...I think it's one of the best J-frames ever built. Very sturdy, great sights, easy to carry, and handles a wide range of ammo. What's not to like?

A chiefs special has a hammer. Useless for pocket carry. I carried mine in a JIT slide OWB.

Mine was a m60 with the 2 1/8". Greatest j frame ever.
