Now on the rite side of barrel is very hard to make out- I can see ????76 7" 3.5 TGNS?

That's what I thought but I didn't know victory models came in stainless.

Didn't think about the Victory - The pre 10 kept comin to mind-
It & the mdl 22 is all i can recall havin that crazy front site-

pics do not show on my pc sight is semi-blocked but if it's shiney it 's nickled not stainless or chromed out this is my guess based on the limited discription . i'kll work on trying to get the pictures to show and end the guessing the model 22 or pre-model 22 was a large frame that supported the 45 acp and later the 45 colt the weight and cal will determine the model . i still think it's a victory model or a returned lend lease 38 S&w from the war

As i said its nickled & i'm pretty sure it was either a re-do of just nickle plated at some time- Cal is 38 Special

Forgot to say- Welcome to our little fire!

wood or plastic grips ? some of the victory models came with plastic like grips . these were issued to war plant security workers, bank guards and the like . some were sent overseas but i believe in 38s&w which the brits foolishly called a 380 which was their cal of chice during the war . they couldnt make enough webleys to keep up with demand

The marking is not TGNS but TONS. It is a British proof mark for foreign made firearms, showing the pressure it was test fired to.

I THINK most Victory models began with the letter V. From the end of the ejector rod, I would say this is likely a Model 1905, which is BEFORE the Model 10 M&P Special, and before the Victory. This MAY have gone to Britain as a Lend Lease gun.

As noted, that is nicklelplate, and not stainless.

Dang C3 ---Mark as "Nail Hit On Head!"
Took another look & the V is on the other side of the lanyard from the serial number- Totally overlook it on bottom of barrel too :o
Thanks guys- Was just info to store in my head- This has A LOT of sentimental value to my wife. She learned to shoot with it as a kid (out of 4 girls she was always Daddys Tomboy! ):D I'm making a glass topped display case for it & his badge -
Thanks to guncollector too! It has wood grips-:cool:
