    If your S&W was made after 1957, there is a short cut that will enable you to help yourself. Open the cylinder, on the crane or frame under the cylinder there will be a Model number, such as Mod 10/12 or what ever. If it was manufactured prior to 1957, yes, more information is definitely needed.
