Default Very first Md-14 8 3/8th's ?

Could this be the very first Md 14 that shipped with an 8 3/8th's inch barrel? It shipped in Jan 1959 which is the first month and year of this barrel length. 3 T's to boot. SN is K-338319. Do you have an earlier one?

Very nice revolver. Maybe someday I'll get a 14. I never could warm up to the 8 3/8 barrels though

I had a K22 Magnum with the long barrel and it handled beautifully. Had no use for a 22Mag and sold it. Would love 22 LR or a 38 with the long barrel.

I bought this Full Target 8 3/8" K-38 from the original owner who bought it in 1959. I'll have to letter it. I have owned this one for about 11 years.
