If it says .38 Smith and Wesson on the barrel, it is not a .38 special. It takes a .38 Smith & Wesson cartridge. They're different. Be very careful.

If you can post pictures, it would be helpful.

.38 Smith and Wesson Special IS ..38 Special. IF it is a model 10 it is not .38 S&W. Contact Smith and Wesson for a maufacturing date.

Things arent adding up. Is there a letter preceding the serial number? Why I ask is after WWII a letter preceeded the serial number and it wasnt until 1957 that Smith & Wesson gave their revolvers a model number.
