1943 Victory Model Smith and Wesson, 38 SW, Real Ivory Grips one of a kind piece. I don't know anything about the history of this revolver. My hunch is that it was engraved in Germany during the occupation. These revolvers were widely issued and German engravers would work for a pack of cigarettes or food during that period. $1800 located in Menard TX but I will ship to an FFL.

Be sure everyone knows that 38SW is NOT 38 special. 38 was also called 38 short if I remember correctly. Don't use 38 special, it will destroy the pistol.

Unless the chambers have been reamed, 38 special won't fit in the gun.

By the initials of the ordinance officer and the caliber.
