I've not been able to pin point the model of this .38 Smith & Wesson revolver. It fits certain parts of the model 2 and 3 bit doesn't have all the characteristics of either. It's a single action 5 shot (I believe, been a little while since I've looked at it). Grips are real ivory, cylinder locks up tight, and action feels good. I haven't fired it and not sure I have any ammo at the moment. Mainly just trying to get a positive I.d. for my records and possibly a value as well. I can get take more photos and info if needed.

Thank you, David

Doesn't appear to be a "Baby Russian" based on the photo's I've seen

Smith & Wesson said it was manufactured 1876-1877 and recommended I visit the Smith & Wesson historical foundation for more information. I'll either post in their forums for info or send of the required information and $75 for a letter of authenticity
