I do not know the model. Only know what is stamped on the handgun. 38 SPECIAL CTG and the serial number on the underside of the barrel is B211849. Im sure my grandfather bought it used in 1949.

Ok, I see that you have requested a phone call. I need to get some additional info from you before I can call. Do you have a photo of the gun, and can you tell me everything that is written on the gun's barrel as far as patent date info?
