May I hazard a guess?I need a little help. I just bought a 38 special. I have searched and searched with very little solid information. It has a 4 inch barrel, nickel, serial B 605xxx. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I agree with this.May I hazard a guess?
If you found that number on the barrel's underside, the gun was originally blued (=B), and most likely a .38 Military & Police model, which the serial 605xxx would put around 1929. Check for the same serial on the bottom of the butt. If I guessed right, there should not be a B there.
Without picture confirmation, that's a bit of Sherlocking, though.
