    Greetings, all! I recently acquired an old revolver from my aunt that previously belonged to my now deceased grandfather. It has "Revolvers Dreadnought" on top of the barrel, with some dates below that which are fairly unreadable. On the left side, above the grip and behind the cylinder is "Azul" and "Trademark." It is a 6-shot .38. Is anyone familiar with this piece? I haven't had much luck on the old 'net. Thanks in advance for any info.

    Your pistol was made by the well known Eibar arms company in Spain. I believe they still make weapons. AZUL is a brand name they used, but I am not sure about the time span. It is a copy of a S&W Military and Police.
