Hello all. I'm new to this forum. I'm an avid hand gun owner and enthusiast. My wife's grandmother passed away recently at 101 years young. My wife inherited her belonging and one of the items was a: Smith & Wesson .38 Special (actually marked Special CTG). 6" Barrel Blue Wooden Handles # on the bottom of the handle is C109040 Inside the yoke is stamped V 7 followed by 14887 fixed site It is in excellent shape and was chambered with 6 .38 shells...my wife's grandmother was a tough old gal.
