Hello, I recently inherited and interesting old revolver. Problem is I can't seem to find any information as we when it was made or any other details about it. All I've been able to find is that its a S&W Special Cartridge and it makes one hell of a bang. I was hoping someone a little more knowledgeable on here might be able to shed some more light on it for me, serial number is 63334 if that helps. Thanks for taking a look.

If it is a .44 Special you have a very valuable one. That's a .44 Hand Ejector Military, later to be named M21.
It's worth a lot!!!
Shoot it all you want, you ain't gonna hurt it.:cool:

It's a 44 alright, had a devil of a time finding ammunition for it. I had no idea it was rare though. Thanks for taking a look and shedding some light on it for me.

As Jonesy said there should be an S in front of that number.
.44 Special ammo isn't hard to find.
It was made in 1946.
