BOTH of your revolvers should have five screws -- the four that you can see in the side plate plus another on the underside of the gun just in front of the trigger guard.

ALL S&W K frame revolvers were 5 screw in this time period until sometime in the 1950s.

The fact that your friend's does not have the V prefix means that it was manufactured earlier, probably in 1940 to 1941 as the change to the V prefix was made at serial number 1,000,000 around 1942.
