    A few years ago my little brother was playing around on our farm and under the porch he found a half burried snubnose revolver.
    I have no clue what it is or what it is chambered in In. It is very very OLD the people who lived there before me had no clue anything about it.
    The logo looks like it might be a smith&wesson but I can't be sure
    The magazine/cylinder is what I don't understand because its not like any thing I've even seen on the inside
    I'm new to this so please tolerate my ignorance
    Thanks


    I can upload pictures

    No problem, be glad to help, but we DO need pictures! Good, well lighted, in focus, entire gun, and closeups of any markings. Lots of pixels, please.

    And where ARE my manners? Welcome to the forum- when you get a minute, drop by the intro thread, say howdy, and tell us about yourself.

    There doesn't seem to be enough metal in that cylinder for it to be a "real" pistol. Maybe it is some oooooold timey cap gun?

    It's an old, 50s era cap gun.

    Or a cap gun. Looks a sort of like a Mattel toy pistol that was popular back in the 1950's. I have an old Mattel Fanner "Shootin' Shell" single action that is actually realistic enough to fool a lot of people that it is a real gun. It fooled my mom for years. I think they made a Mattel Chief's Special revolver too which would look a lot like the one pictured.

    More pics?

    Thanks everyone for your help
    I can't help but feel depressed with the let down that it was what I was hoping it wasn't
    If it had any value I would sell it and by a 22 handgun or my first shotgun (mossberg 500 field in 12ga)

    Its only a letdown if you let it be so. I have some "worthless" guns including toy guns that are still neat to own. Keep your eyes open and someday you might run across a great deal. When you least expect it.
