Once again I come to you guys in hopes you can tell me exactly what I have acquired. Any info is greatly appreciated.
I don’t even know what caliber it is. It looks like .38 but when I search it online all the ones I find are .32.

Welcome to the forum!

Your gun appears to be a 38 Double Action 3rd Model made between 1884-1895 - serial number range, 119001-322700.

The left side of the barrel just in front of the cylinder should be stamped " & 38 S&W Ctg &", it may be obscured by glare in the photo or the barrel may have been refinished and the stamping removed. Catalog value as of 2016, $250 +/-

38 S&W is different from 38 special and they are not interchangable.

This is my 4th model from 1901...
