The .38 Smith & Wesson Special (commonly .38 Special, .38 Spl, or .38 Spc, pronounced "thirty-eight special") is a rimmed, centerfire cartridge designed by Smith & Wesson. It is most commonly used in revolvers, although some semi-automatic pistols and carbines also use this round. The .38 Special was the standard service cartridge of most police departments in the United States from the 1920s to the early 1990s, and was also a common sidearm cartridge used by soldiers in World War I. In other parts of the world, it is known by its metric designation of 9×29.5mmR or 9.1×29mmR.
Noted for its accuracy and manageable recoil, the .38 Special remains the most popular revolver cartridge in the world more than a century after its introduction. It is used for target shooting, formal target competition, personal defense, and for hunting small game.
Up for sale is a Kimber K6s TLE 3" .357MAG revolver. This particular one has never been shot. I absolutely love it and I think this is the best looking/feeling K6 around but I'd like to sell it and buy the snubby version. $800 firm, buyer pays for BGC at the FFL of your choosing near...
I am in the middle of getting a bit of 38 Special Brass processed for sale but thought I would throw some up while I finish.
This is all my personnel stash (I have finally come to grips with I have way too much brass) that I am selling.
This has been sized and deprimed, expanded but not...
Hoping to move along a bit of excess ammo in an effort to avoid coming out of pocket for an optic purchase. I'm not separating anything from the lot right now, and will only afford consideration to trading for a like-new 1-4x optic for an AR. Happy to add a bit of cash on my end if necessary...
I have these two big coffee tins full of clean 38 special brass and a set of RCBS 38SP/357MG dies that I just have no use for. Make me an offer in cash or throw me something to trade. I could use .300 Blackout dies, AR parts, primers or powders you no longer use, heavier .223 bullets bonded or...
Vast majority are what I have shot myself once fired, I don't discriminate though when picking up range brass.

This is a Phelps progressive reloader which is a copy of the famed Star reloaders popular a couple decades ago. Thousands of these reloaders are still used today. My personal Star machine was purchased over 40 years ago and have loaded over 100,000 rounds without any single parts breaking or...
Picked this up on impulse as a cheap car safe gun, but considering how stocked I am on 9mm, I'm going a different direction.
Very impressed with this offering. I've had a few of the older Taurus 85 models, this is better. The older guns were always incredibly over sprung to deal with hard...
I've decided to sell my Ruger GP100 chambered in 38 special 357 magnum. It is a somewhat hard to find model because it has a 5 inch barrel which is the perfect compromise between the popular 4.2" and 6" revolvers. It ends up being a very balanced pistol and is a real joy to shoot. Extremely...
Taurus 605 Snubnose (.38/357) and 50rds of .38 special. Has a Big Dot XS front sight upgrade installed. Not the best looker but it works. I just prefer Smith and Wesson. Bore is excellent.
Price is $300 Cash or 1000rds of 7.62x39.
Send a personal message(PM) if interested.
October 7th price lowered. To $350.
For Oregon buyers I do get down to Portland about once a month.
I have this virtually like new S&W 442-1 38 Special with 40 rounds through it.
Nice light weight gun, but just does not fit my needs.
This is a no lock version. That I bought about 6 months...
I have 4 bags 225 pieces of 38 Special Brass, all are 'Western' headstamp.
Brass has been sized/deprimed, expanded w/slight flare and then wet tumbled in SS media and dried properly.
I do not know if this is once fired or not as I got awhile ago at a sale but it all looks good or I wouldn't...
Taurus M85-Ultralite (38 special) Revolver
Buyer pays fees.
Moving out firearms I'm not shooting - gathering funds for a new project.
Purchased used from another NWFA member (who said it was NIB - and I believe him given there were no powder burn rings on front of cylinders)
