    Welcome to the forum.

    At the time your revolver was made, S&W had not started assigning model numbers. Your revolver would be a K-38, and considered a Pre-Model 10.

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    A K 38 would have a K prefix s/n, adjustable sights and not be a snubbie. It's a M&P. Pre Mod. 10 is correct nomenclature too. But it's not a Masterpiece.

    to the forums from the Wiregrass! Here are my babies, a .38 M&P from 1948 with long throw action and a period correct box. And, a C series M&P, pre-model 10, from July 1949. Notice the pre-10 has a round butt.
