    Tried to attach some photos, hope it worked... These are before and after pictures of my cleaning. The pitting on the cylinder is the worst on the picture shown. The cylinder locks up tight, but there is a slight end play that is barely noticeable, might need a bushing.

    Thanks for all your input! So, What do you think?

    Possible to swap in a newer crane & cylinder? Sure, but not cost effective... the parts alone would cost as much as the gun is worth. I wouldn't even think about it for a gun that doesn't have a lot of sentimental value. I have a similar one that my Father-In-Law carried for 50+ years but even though I know how to fit & time the parts myself haven't managed to talk myself into spending the money.

    Cool

    It appears you have a .38 Military & Police Model of 1905-2nd Change.

    Built from 1906-1909 per Standard Catalog of Smith&Wesson.

    It was definitely rode hard and put up wet.

    Regards,

    FlaRon

    Look under the barrel (hidden by the ejector rod) and see if a B or N preceeds the serial number?

    I purchased a 38 S&W Special CTG in nickel and the serial number starts in C 5XXX. I am wondering the vintage and value.

    1948-1952 Value depends on condition & location. If you can post a picture or 2 we can come close on the value.
