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 t...

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...

how does one "lenghten a chamber " ? do you mean replace the 38 s&w cylinder with a 38 special
cylinder?The cylinders are the same length. A .38 special chambering reamer would be run into

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

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 do...

First of all you would need to check the legality of what you are planning to build with your

The Model 27 was the Rolls Royce of the early S&W 357s. An early model in good shape with no
mars and good high gloss bluing with box and original grips is worth a bit of money. He was

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,
