Thanks! Just wanted to know what I inherited and find a holster for itYou have a WW2 era Military & Police model. Yours looks like a British Service Revolver. They were chambered in 38 S&W, NOT 38 S&W Special, though yours may have been reamed to accept them. Grips are the original style and the gun appears to have been heavily buffed then refinished. You can see that the ejector rod has a blued finish, while the rest doesnt
Where do you measure from?Hey Sean,
Welcome to S&W!
Way to go!

"K" Frame holster... Is that a 5" barrel??
Hi Guy, these are the cartridges that I use at the range for itWelcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! The finish of that British service revolver is original. It is a phosphate finish but the extractor rods were blued from the factory. The question is does it still chamber 38 S&W or has it been reamed for 38 Special? If you don't have a 38 special cartridge to check by inserting it, take a picture of the chambers in the cylinder with good lighting from the front of the cylinder so we can see into the chambers, and we can tell you if it's been reamed.
