information about S&W Victory model SN V549xxx
Gentlemen, happy Independence day....I have a question about a Victory model S&W 38 cal SN # V 5495xx. It has the smooth brown walnut stocks which are also stamped 5495xx (I could not see the V as a prefix) on the right stock, and has the lanyard ring in place. The barrel is 5 in long and is stamped 38 cal. The last patent # is Dec 29 14. The revolver belongs to a friend and the frame has 5 screws where as my Victory model 38 S&W special ctg SN # SV 780xxx only has 4. Could someone explain the difference and tell of the manufacture date and destination? I have enclosed 1 photo of revolver. Thanks for your help.
