This is my first S&W revolver and my first post here.

I would like to know what kind of S&W revolver I have and what year if possible model etc. so when I order the correct grips or parts they know what I have.

It has a four inch barrel, double action, fixed sights, swing out ejector cylinder, no safety that I can see.

Right side of barrel stamped Smith & Wesson Springfield Mass USA. Last pat'd year Sept. 14-09 there is one Maltese cross at the beginning and at the end of the stamping.

Left side of barrel starts with a engraving mark than 38 S&W special CTG and again the engraving mark.

I found the serial number after taking off the grips on the bottom of the frame the first three numbers are 227, a matching number was located on the underside of the barrel visible when you slide the cylinder away only there is a letter B about one 1/4 inch in front of the number.

After examining the frame where the nipples are to align the grips there is a letter E and above that is I believe a #8. Also this is a round butt five screw revolver.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you
Jake in AZ

Welcome to the forum Jake.
Sounds like you have a .38 Military and Police Model of 1905. That serial {227XXX and I'm guessing at the number of digits} would make it a 3rd Change version from around 1914. That is before heat treating started. Some pictures would help alot :mrgreen:

I saved about 7 photos, but I don't think I can add them as attachments (being new) I'll ask the Admin. later.
