Definitely not a S&W. Originally, almost all gun makers stamped the top rib of the barrel with the company's name. It could be worn away or removed when the gun was refinished.

H&R, Iver Johnson, Forehand & Wadsworth, and Hopkins & Allen are a few of the makers of Double Action revolvers. Usually, the stocks will have initials or an image, making is easier to ID, but those stocks are handmade replacements.
