    Need more information because S&W made several different .38 top-break revolvers.

    Does your revolver have an exposed hammer that can be cocked with the thumb, or is the hammer inclosed with a grip safety (bar) on the back of the handle?

    Is it a double-action or a single-action revolver that must be cocked before it can be fired?

    Does it have, or not have a trigger guard?
