I guess I don't have enough experience, but without more and better pictures or further information, I have no idea how anyone could tell the original caliber of that gun or whether it was made for the police, the British, the U.S. military, some other country, or for commercial sale.

Many surplus Victory and pre-Victory model revolvers were cut down after WWII by companies that bought them and resold them to the public, but that revolver could have been cut down by any gunsmith also.

In any case, it has little value except as a shooter; if it accepts .38 Special ammunition, it should be limited to standard velocity.
