You have a postwar .38 Military & Police revolver. The S prefix guns only shipped from February, 1946, until the supply in the vault ran out sometime in the latter half of 1948. The last of them were assembled in March, 1948.

Guns bearing the S840xxx serial range were shipping in October, 1946, so there's a good chance yours left the factory during that period. Since they were not shipped in serial order, we cannot be sure of the ship date for yours, but that would be close.

I do maintain an extensive database of these revolvers. I would appreciate having the full serial number on yours so I can include it in the accumulated data (ownership is not tracked). If you don't wish to post it on the public forum, please send me a PM. Thanks.
