My mother , who has the gun with her in Argentina, says it reads "Jostine" but I googled that and can't find anything.What is written in front of 38 special. It should be the model. I can't make it out. I cant fit the serial number into a known gun range. Is there a number on the bottom of the grip frame?
Thanks, if it is a Police Positive Special, would it say that on the barrel?I think it may be a Police Positive Special. The Special had a longer cylinder to handle the 38 special and 32-20. I think the Army or Official Police would have more metal around the cylinder bores? You could weigh it. The Police Positive Special will weigh about 24 ounces, and the Army, or Official Police would weigh about 34 ounces. I think?
