another s&w 38 special ctg

6 inch barrel, 4 screw right reciever plate, sn 621xxx, blued, checked wood grips with the sn on the inside of the left grip, large half moon blade front site. Like to know about when it was made,

I've shoot a few pistols in my life and that gun is about strawberry sweet. I wonder what my father-in-law will hold me up for when I buy it from him.

The serial number should be stamped on the underside of the frames grip butt. It would also appear on the back underside of the barrel and the back of the cylinder. Assuming the sn on the grips is the same as those on the gun then it was made early 1930's. And it would be a .38 Military & Police Model.

Did you not get the memo that CTG means "cartridge", it's a caliber, not a model?
