I have ben watching old reruns of The Andy Griffith Show. It occured to me to try and decipher what model revolver Barney carried. My first guess is maybe a model 10 Smith. Anyone know?

Google is your friend:

One major source of trouble with Barney is his abilities with a firearm. After several occasions of accidentally discharging his revolver (usually a Colt "Official Police" model .38 caliber)

Usually I see a Colt Official Police .38 Special (Post-War).
Occasionally I have seen a S&W M-10 4 inch.

There are more comments on it, but they boil down to, "whatever the prop guys gave him"
