    Click on the box in the bar at the top of a new post for a picture (4th one-has a tree in a box). A popup will show "upload from computer" on that popup will be a box for "choose file" , click on that and select the picture you want. Than click on upload file and it should post.

    And in a previous post you said a 357 wont go all the way in. Sounds fishy to me.

    If it's .38 S&W, neither a .38 Special nor a .357 will go in all the way.

    To the OP, why exactly do you think it is a 1917 S&W?

    Hi Joseph,

    If it doesn't have the S&W logo one side of the frame, it's either a copy of a S&W or a military issue 1917. But if it's a military 1917 it will have "US ARMY MODEL 1917" stamped on the butt of the grip frame and "PROPERTY OF US ARMY" stamped on the underside of the barrel.

    S&W logo in front of the grip:




    You're gonna' have to be more specific about what you mean by "too big for the chamber". Is the .38 too long to go all the way in or is it too big around to even start into the chamber???

    If the .38 SPECIAL only goes part way into the chamber and since it's a 6 shot cylinder, you likely have a WWII era .38-200, similar to and interchangeable with the .38 S&W (not .38 Special). Made by S&W on the K frame under a contract for the British. And the barrel has been cut down shorter like many of them.

    If the .38 won't even start in the chamber it's a K frame in 32-20, 32 WCF, or 32 Winchester (all the same cartridge) and it's a K frame.

    The caliber should be marked on one side of the barrel or the other, depending on the vintage of the gun.

    Is the gun a large N size frame or the medium K size frame?

    It could also be re-chambered and converted to some other cartridge, but that's a lot less likely.
