Colt New Army/Navy

I recently picked up a Colt New Army or New Navy .38 revolver. I believe this is a civilian model, but I'm not sure. I'm pretty sure it is chambered for the .38 Long Colt and not .38 special, but again I'm not sure. According to the S/N (2XX 4XX) it was made in 1904 (per a web search). After getting it home and cleaning up a bit; it dosen's look like it's ever been fired!

Should I keep it as is; or would it be OK to put a few rounds through it? Black Hills makes .38 Long Colt if it is indeed chambered for that round. Any advice?
