could someone help with dating a 38 special ctg can't find a model number .the serial number on butt is k 98xxx
Quote:
what info do you need only other numbers on revolver are 9 above 44108 with 8 below its a 4inch barrel blued fixed blade front sight adjustable rear sight
Given the above info, we can narrow it down to one of 2 models, either a model 14 which was the 38 target masterpiece, or the model 15, which was the 38 combat masterpiece. The SN of K98XXX automatically makes it a K frame, 6 shot revolver, 5 screw (since K98XXX is approx 1950 or so production) with adj sights.

Does it say Smith & Wesson on it? Other makers had CTG as part of their caliber stampings on the barrel
Well given it has adjustable sights, K prefix SN on butt, I'd be very surprised if it was not a S&W.
