Help with info about an inherited gun

Hello everyone.

I confess I'm a noobie with my first post. While I've been in the USAF for more than 20 years, I know very little about the details of revolvers. I wonder if anyone can shed any light or speculation on my grandfather's pistol I now possess.

I don't shoot it and don't desire to. The ammo found with it looks ancient, and I wonder if its really the wrong kind and should be long colt. What's especially odd is while the gun says S&W on it, its barrel says Colt. I'd guess sometime decades ago the original barrel was damaged and a smith or just a person replaced it.

Thanks for any insight. I saw the thread about S&W serial numbers, but it seems to gap between the late twenties and WWII and I'm guessing this gun is from somewhere around that area.
