I see the same four assembly numbers on the frame, bottom of the barrel, cylinder release and crane. Are you still certain that it was rebarreled and given a new cylinder? If so, it would have gone through reblueing, right?
If so, is it now a .38 S&W Spec?
I'm trying to figure out if this has more value as a collector, or if I can use it as a shooter. (And how indebted I am to the gifter.)
