I just received a Smith and Wesson that belonged to my Grandfather. I would like to know the age of the gun. I may have it reblued.
It has on the right side of the barrel: 38 S&W Special CTG
On the left side of the barrel: Smith & Wesson.
Right side of the body is the trademark.
Serial number has an S on it and then a series of 6 numbers.
I am not very knowledgable about guns but this is pretty cool.
It has some rust on it. If anyone can help direct me on finding out the year.
I assume it uses 38 special ammunition?
Is it worth getting it reblued?
I see not safety so I assume this older gun has no safety?
Thanks for any help.
