Can anyone help identifying my gun that I inherited from my Dad? The model # on the bottom is V 350359. I was trying to get a Rubber Grip but can't seem to find the right match. Any help would be appreciated.

You need a grip that fits a Square Butt, K Frame revolver
V 350359 would be the serial number. Your gun is what is commonly called the Victory model and originally it probably had a 5 inch barrel. They were produced for the British & commonwealth nations during WW2

Do you know by any chance the value of the gun?

And it does NOT shoot the common 38 Special, it shoots 38S&W, so make sure you get the correct ammo for the gun

I was looking at one for about 350 with some bluing loss but it had original grips and barrel length. The grips on it are a very plain Jane. I’m not sure if yours are original or not, they look like they’re nicer then the ones I saw but they could still be original. High side I’d pay is maybe 450-500 if it was pretty nice, but that’s just me. I’d say your Dads gun may have more sentimental value than cash value.

Are those grip panels plastic?? Since it has been cut down it has no collector value and the caliber being 38 S&W instead of 38 S&W Special makes it harder sell. I would put the value at $200-225 as a shooter

Agree with Jonsey814 assessment. Shooting the 38 S&W is fun and hopefully has some family history.
