Default Model 10 Maybe?

My stepdad just gave me another piece. I am not very savvy on revolvers but after a few google searches I believe I have a model 10.
That is a hogue grip by the way.

Open the cylinder, the model number should be inside the yoke. It looks like a model 10 to me though, but I don't know all the exact nuances of identifying a S&W.

Sorry to hear that. It could either be an older model, as I don't know when they started putting the model number in the yoke area, or it could be a replacement yoke. I hope someone else who knows more than I will lead you in the right direction (of course those folks aren't hard to find, I don't know nearly as much as I like to think I do). My curiosity is piqued for sure.

May be a Model 10. Open the cylinder, look at the frame under where the crane closes up. They were making this as the Military & Police Model before they began numbering the models. There should be a 2 or 3 digit number, like 10 or 10-3 (engineering changes to model)

Here is the mark of a Model 36.

I've researched it, and all I can find is that it was probably made before the 50's, that's when they started putting the model number under the crane.

The mark right above the first "3", is that a "T" or just a scratch?
