Parris,

Are you sure about the numbers on the grip?

If it is 6 numbers after the S, it's a postwar .38 Military & Police, which is now known as the Model 10, and was probably made in 1948.

The K that you note could indicate that it's a K-frame, but I've never seen one so marked. The number after the K is the floor assembly number.

If it is only 5 numbers, then it's one of the .38 Spl. chambered N-frame revolvers, which is larger and heavier and would have been made about 20 years later.

The patent dates, though, are a strong indication that this is a .38 Military & Police.
