Hello:
New to the forum. I just purchased a S&W 38 spl CTG. Not real sure what I have. I Have not had chance to shoot it yet. Little worst for wear, it seems to work okay, in dry fire. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

Is there a model marking inside the yoke when you open the cylinder? I have a Model 10-5 that has D series serial number.

Model 10 is The classic S&W. In production in various forms since 1899. (y)

Thanks for your reply, I have a picture of the open cylinder, the only this I saw there was the number “1”?

Look on the frame right above the hinge that holds the cylinder.- with the cylinder open

Okay, wow didn’t see that. It says MOD 10 5? Kinda worn, not sure.
A magnifying glass and a strong light helps. Probably from the early 60's

I can't read the stampings on the butt after the serial number. What to those say?

Welcome to our friendly forum. Allow me to offer a word of caution: S&W revolvers require company and you will soon develop a craving for a Victory model, a couple of model 19s and soon graduate to the L and N frames! Just brace yourself and enjoy the ride.
