Hello, I’m going through my dads gun closet and have a .38 special. It has some sentimental value (first pistol o ever fired) and was wondering if it had any collector value.
See pics for markings. Thanks in advance.
It is a Model of 1905 Change 4 aka M&P .38. Probably shipped in the first half of 1941. Looks like it may have been converted in the UK after the war but you enlargements are too large for me to make any sense of them.
By the way, the finish looks really good and looks like the grips have very little wear. Very faint drag line on the cylinder. Looks to be in very nice shape. Nice pistol. I have a later pre model 10 6" with some finish wear that is a great pistol. My sn is 8205XX.
