My grandfather just gave me his dads .38 revolver. I can’t seem to find any decent information about it and can’t seem to pull the right numbered off the gun either. Can anyone help em out with some info (age, history, if it can still be fired or not)

Welcome from Iowa.
I really don't know much about this model but it appears to be a .38 Double Action 5th Model.
It's probably worth about $300.
You can shoot it but only with standard velocity ammo.

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! It's a 38 Double Action, 4th Model from around 1909. The grips should be black hard rubber. You can still find them on eBay. If the action is good, you can shoot modern smokeless .38 S&W (not special) in it.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it. Didn’t expect such a quick response either.

Maybee you could help me with this next one as well. I don’t even know where to start with it. All I know is it’s a cap and ball revolver.

What does it say on top of the barrel? It looks close to a Whitney but not quite.
