Smith and Wesson revolver ID input
 
I inherited a S&W revolver from my father-inlaw. It has a chrome finish with a barrel 2 inchs. V groove rear sight. Has a 6 shot cylinder. Serial#496xxx. It has the Smith trade mark emblem on the right side but has no model# or caliber listed. It will load a 38 short but will not load a 38 long. My local gun shop says it will shoot the 9mm or 38 short. The extractor looks like a normal extractor and not something that would pull out a 9mm. I would feel more comfortable shooting it if I knew for sure what caliber it was supposed to be.

I think that means, "give us a picture"

Look here to see, right under the cylinder hinge:

Scott,
It just reads 47192. Besides the Smith trade mark it only says "made in USA" on the right side forward of the trigger.

i am fairly knowegable abouth smiths. what does the barrel say. it should state caliber on right side of barrel. do not shoot anything and most especially a 9mm in the gun till this gets cleared up. anything i can do to help i will have a few books that specialize in smiths.

Does the barrel say "38 S&W ctg."?? (no Spl.)

If 38 special won't go all the way in, it might be a 38 S&W revolver. In a J frame
that's a mdl 32 or 33. In a 6 shot? Model 11 maybe? Possibly a Victory model M&P
in 38/200 that was cut down and plated?

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT FIRING 9mm in it. Unless explosive disassembly sounds
like a good thing.
