"Francotte system", according to my "Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns" - these were made almost as a cottage industry. When cleaned up, maybe a manufacturer's name will be visible?

I use a battery charger and baking soda. You can use salt too. Just google electrolysis and you'll find several sites telling you how. Just make sure bubbles come off of piece you want cleaned or it will dissolve it instead of sacrifice piece.

You can tell where immersion stopped.

I thought I'd borrow this thread instead of starting yet another "Can you identify this.." topic.

Earlier this evening I was watching an old episode of Criminal Minds.
There was a scene with this revolver:

That must be one of most brillaint looking guns I've seen.
It still has that old revolvery look, but with buch of modern desing.
Anyways, I tried to find what that was by googling, but no luck.
It is very similiar to S&W Model 629 Stealth Hunter, but it's not quite the same. Maybe an earlier model perhaps?

I'd really appreciate if someone could identify it.

S&W late model N-frame revolver (629 most likely), with aftermarket barrel or barrel shroud. You can see that the front of the rear sight assembly is rounded. That puts it in the range of the SafeT-hammer series or the last of the pre-lock guns. The side of the frame below the forcing cone is nealy flat. Definately N-frame.
There appear to be weights in the shrouded underlug
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Thanks! With your information I was able to find more info and learn more about these things. However I was not able to find what exact barrel shroud that is.
There are more and less similiar ones out there, but I cannot find the one on the pics.

Maybe this should be "Help me to identify this barrel shroud" instead :P

I really like the look of it. Those holes at the end (or is it beginning) of the barrel and that groove around them.

Anyways I appreciate the prompt answer!
