Smith & Wesson Nickel Plated Model 38 (Airweight version) with Pearl Grips - .38 Special
Smith & Wesson Bodyguard with longer barrel

The Smith & Wesson Model 38/49 "Bodyguard" is a Model 36 that has a "Camel Hump" hammer shroud used to prevent clothing snag, as the hammer is concealed in the shroud. The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard was unusual in that the alloy framed "Airweight" version was released first, as the Smith & Wesson Airweight Bodyguard, in 1955. In 1957 Smith & Wesson introduced a new model numbering system, with the Airweight Bodyguard becoming the Model 38. The steel-framed Bodyguard, the Model 49, was not introduced until 1959, unusual in that most Airweights were preceded by their steel counterparts. For the new polymer framed Bodyguard see Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 38.
