It is a WWII era Model 1905 Change 4 M&P frame dating to 1941 (my guess). The inside of the sideplate appears to lack an assembly number. The ejector rod dates to 1948 or later and does not match the cut in the barrel (earlier style). I am surprised this serial gun was not drilled for a butt swivel (indicating a military customer).

It is a Frankengun, a collection of parts. Despite the mass production there was a lot of hand fitting done. There are too many used M&P revolvers out there in varying conditions to consider a restoration from an economic perspective. If the gun can be safely fired and functions reliably quit there.
