to the forums from the Wiregrass! It is likely to be a .38 Double Action 3rd Model top break made in 1884-85. It has the recurved trigger guard which its sister model .32 DA in the same serial range did not. In your picture, the trigger guard is oriented backwards. The recurve part goes behind the trigger. The trigger guard snaps into the frame. It would be easier to positively ID it with the cylinder because these models only differed significantly with the cylinder. Does it have single or double cylinder stops?
