    So I probably have the Braendelin that isn't marked since I cant see any markings on this one...what a way to narrow it down :).

    Hey Jack404, how would u judge the condition of the revolver from the pics I linked to a few posts up from here?

    I should probably have a professional appraisal just to see if I need a rider on my homeowners to cover it..

    I also inherited a MUCH newer Smith & Wesson .38 Combat Masterpiece revolver that looks brand new (I even have the box it came in and i believe its from 1960's i could easily be wrong though) serial number starts as such K979xxx says 38 S&W. SPECIAL CTG. on barrel. My grandmother had purchased it for my grandfather years ago is all I know.

    i would ! my bet is its a commisioners pistol to good a condition from the pic's to be a work gun

    snr police officers and political guards got wembleys

    as it has no arrow on it it aint army issue so that means civil and here , they where restricted due to the big caliber and firepower ( until after ww1 when a lot came home )

    i'll wager it was issued to "someone" or "someones guard"

    so do get it checked and as for serials we have always had a firearms register for any civil issued or military issued weapons so i think if done right it should be able to be traced ..

    Ive enjoyed piecing the story of its history together, I think through having these guns passed down to me has sparked a new interest and hobby. Received some cool stuff from granddad and my dad. Remington 1100 12 Ga. a Winchester .308 from 1968, a 22 LR, that .38 S&W Combat Masterpiece, and the BIG BOY .577.

    Im hooked, just hope I can afford the hobby cause I like to do more than look at pictures online!

    For the right price I'd consider parting with mine. Just settling on a fair market price is very difficult because there are so few for sale to compare.
