My father was a WWII vet that served in the Navy. I inherited his old 6 shot revolver. I took it to a gunsmith and asked him if he could tell me it's background or its worth and shootability. He was not helpful at all. His suggestion was to cut it up and throw it away. It has been in my family for a very long time. The only problem that I can see is that the cylinder does not lock correctly each time the trigger is pulled.
Any help would be helpful. Thanks
