Assuming it's a Victory (which I'm sure it is), the date of manufacture can be estimated from the serial number... sometime during the mid-to-latter part of WWII.Thank you very much for the replies, I will look for the V when I receive the weapon. Is there specific things I can look at to confirm the dates? I know nothing about these revolvers.
It is similar (same K-Frame, etc.) but it pre-dates the Model 10.Is it a model 10?
