Thank you for helping me out with this Jim. It has answered much for me and has allowed me to grasp the importance of this part of my family's history along with the part of American and firearm history I am now responsible for.

Again, thank you.

Mike

Serial numbers ran from 25K0001 in 1978 to 56K9999 in 1979.
Production ran from 1955 to 1999. The -4 was the last engineering change to still have the pinned barrel and recessed cylinder, it was deleted with the -5 series.

1980.
Depending on condition, with or without original box and accessories, value ranges from $300 to $500+.

Grandad's .38 Special

I'm trying to find out any info on this old revolver. All we know about it, is my friend's grandfather won it in a poker game. I thought it was a "1905" but because of the V, I'm confused, as I seem to find mixed information. In the list of posted serials, I didn't see any V's other than the "victory" issues, but I'm just not sure.

The pistol is nickel plated, no adjustable rear sight, the rear sight has indentation that is painted green. Front sight is a ramp, has a section painted red. It has faux stag grips which I'm assuming are after market.

On the butt it's marked V 565740, inside the cylinder rim is marked P V and same serial. Serial is also under the barrel followed by a P. Behind the cylinder is stamped 23108 which I've learned from this thread is internal factory.

There is no model number stamped so I know it's before 1957, but I'm guessing the nickel job was done after the fact, I'd like to know the date of manufacture to determine was it pre-war, post-war, or indeed a "Victory" version.

Thanks in advance for your help, I know for a first post this was awfully damn wordy.

Serial numbers ran from V1 in 1942 to V811119 in 1945.
It basically is a 38 Military & Police 4th Change model of 1905 but during the war production shifted to the Military and given the "V" prefix for Victory. The ones shipped to the British will be chambered in 38 S&W vs 38 Special.

The nickel finish is not original.

Just got one of my grails a 52-2 SN A5237XX I'm guessing late 70s but would like to know. It's gut some honest wear but man is it a shooter.
