Wow ! Thanks Wiregrass, its a square butt. I didn't realize it would be that old. It's really in great shape.Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! It's a 38 military and police revolver from 1948. Smith & Wesson didn't Implement model numbers until 1957. Is it a round butt or square butt? This is a round butt snub from 1949. It's a K frame.
I'm not really sure how to do that, just an old guy trying to figure things out, but I'll get someone to do so as soon as I can. Thanks for all your help Wiregrassguy!Well then, we need some pictures. People aren't going to believe you unless you post some.
Thank you for your imput, and info, mrerick. I really appreciate it! This is great information.Welcome to the forum. These were outstanding firearms, made during an age when S&W gun smiths paid great attention to detail. These were referred to at the time as a "K-38" and today as a "Pre-10". After 1957, S&W started using the model numbers and engineering change dash levels.
Thanks Curt360 !! I'm working on that, and, also my Model 28 .357 Highway Patrolman dated late 1954, to early 1955. I'm trying to get one of my Grandkids over here to show me how to do such things. I'm pretty much a novice on this, but trying to learn.Hi and welcome to the forum! Any pics of your revolver? We'd like to see it.
