I have a 38 S&W CTG. It was carried by my wife's grandfather before New Mexico was a state. The serial number on the butt of the revolver is 197276. No letter in front of the #.Can you give me any info on the gun?
lets see if i can help
can you tell me the model?
you can find this number on the frame, when you open the cylinder and look right under the barrel
Have trouble reading it but looks like B 127276
any other writing that could help?
according to the info you have provided and the serial number range, you have a Military & Police 1905 3rd Model, manufactured between 1909 and 1915, there was approx 94,803 made, serial ranging from 146,900 to 241,703, they came in blue and nickel finish with 4",5" or 6" barrels, values for these are as follows:
Exc. $1,400 - VG $1,050 - Good $775 - Fair $525 - Poor $250
add 50% for target model with original adjustable rear sights, add up to 20% pending condition and availability in your area
hope this helped i noticed that we have a problem with the connection, how ever you'll get this info in your email and you can get back on this post from your email.
please take a little time to rate my answer, it will be greatly appreciated
