Brief Info on the S&W M49 .38Special

The strange appearance of the Model 49 is a reflection of being narrowly designed for a particular function. In the case of the model 49, the gun has been designed to be carried, and even fired, from inside of a pocket.
The strange hump backed shape is a result of a shrouded hammer. A small, serrated, and somewhat flattened nub, barely protrudes through a slot along the curve of the shroud. This permits the gun to be cocked and fired in the single action mode. Either during a draw, or while firing inside of a pocket, the shroud keeps the hammer from hanging up or snagging on the clothing. This is one of the best designs for deep concealment, and the only modern design, which allows firing from within the pocket. The slide of an automatic, or the hammer of a revolver would quickly foul, and tangle during this kind of shooting. Photographs of the hammer spur and shroud are shown above. The first shows the weapon with the hammer at rest, the second shows it cocked. The hammer barely protrudes above the shroud, so that it can scarcely be noticed when the piece is viewed from the side. The basic gun, is the well regarded J frame, as is used in the Chief’s, and some other small, hideout guns. This is Smith’s .32 frame, proportioned to the .32 Special round. The frame can be used for guns chambered in .38, by reducing the capacity from 6 to 5. Like all of the short barreled J frame revolvers, the ejector rod in this model is too short to clear the empties completely from the cylinder. The cylinder can also hang, during swing out, if one of the cylinder flutes is not aligned with the edge of the frame. These are minor complains, and are somewhat to be expected in a gun designed to be so compact.
