Well, I don't know how old it is, but it's in pretty rough shape.
Trying to identify this revolver (model number). Seller told me it's a Model 48, but I don't quite trust him. No model number is visible on it, AFAIK. Here goes with the details...
3" barrel, wood grips (original). 6-chamber fluted cylinder. Adjustable front and rear sights. Inside the frame (behind the crane) is engraved "REG 4802." Barrel is marked "SMITH & WESSON .357 MAGNUM." Rebounding hammer. Appears to be based on K-frame.
I'll try to post a photo of it, if necessary.
