    Hi all, The Bodyguard in question is new. I've only had it a few weeks and I'm thinking of trying to return it. The problem is that the cylinder doesn't always rotate when I cold fire it. It seems to me that there's something really wrong with that. Whether loaded or unloaded, the cylinder...

    So I just got a S&W Bodyguard .38 revolver a few days ago, my first revolver, and I really like it except for one thing. The cylinder release. I like the idea of it and the style, but I really don't like the flimsy plastic of the actual part, and mine rattles and flexes and feels really mushy...

    I was recently given this gun by a family member who didn’t know much about it. I’m looking for the year it was made and what it’s worth hopefully, and any other info on it. It’s a .44 s&w special CTG serial number 59280. It does have some scuff marks along the side which I’m assuming are from a...

    I picked this up at auction for cheap, The gold in the insignia and writing stood out to me, the serial# puts it as a 4th change hand ejector, but other than that I have no information, and I haven't found one with the gold in the stamping yet, not even a picture. Can you guys fill me in? Year...

    I need to know, which model and year of this revolver .32 Hello, I'm new here, good morning everyone. I recently bought this .32 revolver, but I have no information on it. It is very old and has disappeared many markings. I researched a lot, and I think it's from Smith & Wesson. I believe...

    So I've been enjoy a nice new Model 27 Classic for the last year or so, and since I shoot mainly cast hand loads I didn't really notice this until recently, but the gun spits with jacketed bullets, badly. I never wear glasses when I shoot, but if I put a jacketed bullet through this thing it's a...

    Hello, I just purchased a S&W Model 629 4" and decided to sign up to the forum. I made this decision because I found this place to be an excellent source of information which helped me to make my purchase. Specifically, I was considering a S&W Model 29, Model 629 and a Ruger Red-hawk Alaskan...
  10. S&W Revolvers 1857 to 1945
    I received this revolver from a family member that passed recently. All the information I could find on it was that it's an N-Frame, possibly model 3? Hand ejector and had the barrel/sight modified. The serial numbers also do not seem to match. I also think that it had been re-nickeled or wasn't...
  11. S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    So I'm on the verge of acquiring my first revolvers and I hoping that some of you might be able to give me some insight on them. First off I plan on getting a K-38, there was one on the table when I took my course, and I just fell head over heels for it. After that, I'm looking at a .357, and a...

    From everything I can tell, it is a k-22, but there is no k in the serial #. On the bottom of the butt, the serial number is 659229. I think it may be pre-war. Inside the cylinder latch it reads 4665. It is 6-shot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. S&W Revolvers 1857 to 1945
    Hi guys, first post here. I have never owned any gun before this. It was given to my friend, and then given to me. At first I didn't think it was very old because it didn't look like an old revolver because of the finish. Honestly I thought it was just a bad revolver because I've seen newer...

    My Grandfather was in WWI and it was said that this was his service revolver. He was also a local policeman and chief in the 50's. The serial number on the butt is obscured and the strap ring has been filed off. The serial number on the cylinder is also obscured. The serial number on the under...

    My neighbor passed and left me his house, we found a bunch of .38 shells, and I mean hundreds of them. After a week of clearing we found this old smith and wesson revolver in the top of a closet, it's in pretty rough shape but any help identifying it would be great. I have no idea about the...

    Well, like most of you I have heard all of the back-and-forth between Colt and its hapless Bondholders for the last several days, and while it is saddening that such an American Icon gunmaker has filed for bankruptcy twice in the last 25 years, and somehow missed out on the "Obama Buying Surge"...
