The mark Reg XXXXX strongly leads me to believe that you have a pre-war Smith and Wesson .357 Magnum. This revolver became the Model 27. These early Smiths made during the great depression were custom made to the customers specification and then registered to the owner with a certificate furnished. Such guns were marked on the frame where yours is markeg with REG and then a number. Smith and Wesson can give you a letter or origin and tell you when this handgun was made and who was the original owner. All for a price of course.
