    It looks a lot like a Spanish Copy of a S&W Hand Ejector D.A. Revolver, but I'm just comparing it to pictures, there are a lot of S&W style Spanish variations. Yours looks to be in really good shape though.

    A note of caution- the .38 Long was similar to the .38 Special in dimensions, but was a black powder very low power round- and true .38 Special ( most especially HOT .38 Specials) should not be fed to it, lest it develop a severe case of heartburn.

    The LARGE number of Spanish imitators is the reason for the "Marcas Registrados" markings on old S&Ws. To let folks know it was the real thing, and not a copy.

    38 spanish

    I have the same one same make.they were made by a better manufacturer than others.while the 38 long was a black powder round by the time of those revolverss smokless wass common the gun was made in the WW1 to WW2 era.I shoot 38 specials in mine and I was amazed at how good it shot.use standard load or target loads.I reload all my ammo.
    never the less the gun is old so dont abuse it.:rolleyes:
