My wife's arthritis has made her using a flashlight and handgun at the same time very hard so I went about finding a new handgun for her personal carry and beside table. A flashlight mounted to a handgun is the obvious choice but this was complicated by her being a dedicated revolver shooter, she simply hates a pistol. So after a bit of research I picked a SW 637 with a Crimson trace grip and a LAserMax trigger guard light. The choice was made partly because of the limited number of revolvers the LaserMax fit. To follow the theme of compatible ammunition reloads for my table and hers I picked up a SW Model 60 and had it magnaported, an action job done, and Cmore bright green sight for my old eyes.

Since being put out of work and told to stay at home I have been carrying the 60 a lot.

Interesting in that when I carried a Colt Python on duty (gotta have a little class, y'know!) I had much the same done to it...Mag-na-Port and a green C-More sight!  And is that a 3" Model 60?  That is my favorite length for a J-frame.  Looks good and makes it balance just right.

Colt Python eh, classy service revolver indeed. I think I only saw one officer carrying such a superb weapon, if you, like I,  live close enough to drive to MAgnaPort in person it may have been you.  I had the same CMore put on another revolver a few years back and it sure makes a nice sight for older eyes lol. 

It is indeed the 3 inch version, a perfect small belt gun for CCW. Perfect balance and weight.

Nope, I carried the Python when I was a street cop in Oklahoma.  And IIRC, the 3" J-frame was a uniform duty gun for a whole in Australia.  In my view the 3" barrel is a great thing that many overlook.  Put a 3" on the J-frame instead of the 2" and like you said, it becomes a perfect balanced small belt gun.  Go up a notch and put it on a K-frame instead of the 4" barrel and much the same, turns it into a perfect balanced gun just a bit bigger.

My camera is FUBAR until I get a new cable from Amazon so no picture of it but my S&W Model 36 is in my head board.  I love the fact that you can load a revolver and let it lay there for years and pick it up and it goes bang.  .38 cal is a lethal round and has stood the test of time.  I also have a Model 10 4" Heavy Barrel with round butt grip that fits my girly man hands perfectly.  I shoot it a couple times a year as it has the best staging trigger I have ever pulled.

Bedside table and carry. It‘s just tough to top a J-frame.

I'm not sure of the time frame but I know the S&W 66 and 681 with 4 inch barrels were used as issued weapons by officers in Australia.
