My only other question is what is the deal with the right side grip. I can't tell if it's just worn down that bad or it's some kind of replacement . . .
The 1st hammer block safety was installed in 1915 on M&P revolvers. Pull back the hammer, look in the slot to the right side and you will see a small tab. That is the hammer block safety.

Most likely that revolver was carried in a holster by a right handed law enforcement officer for a very long time or by a new-age cowboy who rode a horse to check the fence and round up the cattle.
