I just saw this.

I have a 1905 M&P in .38 Spl with a higher serial number and no "V" prefix. Mine was made right around the end of 1941, and a gun with a serial number close to mine went to...

I have one with the 1 5/8" barrel and both cylinders. Mine's got the standard black rubber grip. I consider it little more than a novelty. Mine hasn't been out of the safe in a couple of years. On...

The cylinders are the same length. A .38 special chambering reamer would be run into the .38 S&W chamber to make it longer. If you google "SAAMI chamber drawings", you should find a link to the...

What is stamped into the top or sides of the barrel? What/where are any other markings? My best guess from what's been posted is that it's a .38 Military and Police "Victory" Model. If that's the...

Non +p is fine. S&W didn't start heat treating cylinders until the late 30's or early 40's IIRC.

Pics aren't showing up? I'll take a semi wild guess and say it's probably a .38 Military and Police, later known as the Model 10. Value will be higher as is than refinished, so stop whatever you're...

The part in red is incorrect. One does not have to be a licensed manfacturer to build a suppressor. An ATF Form 1 must be filed and approved, plus the $200 tax paid, and a few other minor things. The...

-5 = 5th engineering change = made between 1989 and 1992(goes for this model only, varies among others). Nothing vintage about a gun made ten years after S&W stopping pinning barrels and recessing...

If I'm looking at the Standard Catalog of S&W correctly, that is a .32 Safety Hammerless 2nd Model. Made between 1902 and 1909. It's chambered for the .32 S&W short. I wouldn't shoot it, but that's...

I've yet to see one shoot under about 3 MOA, in person. Having built a couple from parts and being a machinist by trade, I'm surprised they shoot that well given the wide tolerances and generally...

I've got one and have carried it many miles. I've shot a fair amount of .357 mag through it too. I bought mine used for something like $250, been a while and I don't remember the exact number now. I...

Several gunsmiths offer machining services to recess the cylinder face for moon clips. Most of the time though, it's just to allow moon clips for whatever cartridge the gun is already chambered for. ...
