Looking to get a little information. I have the opportunity to buy a model 37 airweight. I have not seen the gun yet. It is supposed to be in excellent condition when looking online prices are all over the place. What would the rough value be for a model 37 airweight in 38 special. Any help is appreciated

    I like S&W's but 37's are ones I avoid.

    Is there a reason to stay away from the model 37? I know very little about revolvers and less about smiths.

    Some were prone to frame cracking...............reason enough for me.

    Yep, it took a while for S&W to figure out the whole lightweight frame thing.  I would avoid early examples unless you are mostly looking for a safe queen in pristine condition for collecting.
