Looking for some schooling on revolvers. I've never had one, but My FIL passed last year and this was his pistol. He bought it new in early 60's and it doesn't look like it's been shot much. I absolutely love the smooth trigger and it doesn't take much at all to pull it when it's cocked back.
It says 38 S&W Special CTG on the barrel. Does that mean it can shoot normal 38 Special rounds? Thinking prob not the +P's.
How would you compare this gun to the new DA wheel guns of today...I've heard "they don't make'em like they used too", but how were things different back then? I would think technology would get better with time.
thanks for your help!
Last thing is the firing pin on the hammer wiggles just a bit and rocks back and forth. I'm guessing that's normal?
