Its a J frame revolver. The 34 is a classic, they were made with 4" barrels too, and some have a round butt. I have one exactly like yours, a nice little carry item. Not a combat gun obviously, but accuracy at the range will surprise you. Not too many of us who own one like yours are looking to get rid of them, put it that way. Nice complete package, with the box, papers, and tools, a keeper for sure.
