I'm tring to find any information I can on this gun. The story goes that it was my Great Grandfathers, he carried it as a security gaurd at J.A. Jones Shipyard, in Brunswick Ga. Where they built the Liberty Ships during WW II. The only Numbers I have found is on the frame, where the cylinder closes. I do have photos that I can E-mail. I do'nt know enough about computers to attach them here.

Serial Number will be on the outside-bottom of the Grip portion of the Frame...and may also be repeated under the Barrel where the Extrator Rod would cover it when closed, and, on the rear face of the Cylinder along it's outer area.


Not under the Cylinder Crane...those are batch-number-assigns.

Had to go check mine, it's a 32 Colt Police positive, shoots the same Cartridge but different maker. My 9yr old likes to shoot it since the smaller frame & grip fits him better that the m&P S&W in 38 spl.

Robert139:

Lacking a photograph, we need more information.

Does the cylinder have 5 or 6 chambers?

How long is the barrel? Measure from the front face of the cylinder to the muzzle.

What are the stocks made of? Black hard rubber, checkered walnut, or something else?

Do the stocks cover the bottom of the frame/handle?

Are there any patent dates stamped on the top (or possibly the side) of the barrel? If so, what are the last two?

Is there a number stamped on the rear face of the cylinder and/or the bottom of the barrel toward the back? You will have to swing out the cylinder to see it if there is.

Having this information doesn't mean we can identify your revolver, but it will help narrow the possibilities.

And most important of all, is it a Smith and Wesson or only chambered in 32 S&W Long?

Which is why I posted the questions I did. Without a photograph they should give me a clue. Understandably new members find this forum's software is not friendly when it comes to posting images.
