    Last Friday, my Grandpa passed away. I believe this revolver (along with a 1943 Springfield M1 Garand and a Marlin .22) will be willed to me.

    So does anyone know what model this S&W is and maybe an idea of what year it could be? It's a .38 if that matters.

    Wow ... I have the exact same firearm that I got from my great grandpa who was the tax collector and constable of DeKalb county.

    Small world.

    I never have positively ID'd it yet.

    I'm sorry for your loss, I miss my grandpa every day.

    Its an assault pistol, the high powered AK-15 but doesn't have the shoulder thing that goes up.

    It is almost exactly like an old Iver Johnson that I have. Mine is chambered in 38 S&W. Even the top of the grip it like mine.

    Probably chambered in .38 S&W, not S&W Special, which means ammo will be less available and cost more.

    Not worth the $$$ a Schofield or a Russian will bring; still a neat, old-timey, Victorian era "pocket" gun. They were it at the turn of century. I have a Hopkins & Allen clone called a Safety Police because of its firing-pin block.... they went TU in 1916.

    My buddy had somebody's S&W topbreak collection in his shop, .38s and .32s, marked $200 each, and they didn't sit there long!
