    My grandad used it when sheriff in Terra Haute Indiana, early in the century. He actually shot & killed one of two armed bandits trying to rob him, captured the other. I have old newspaper article and pictures.

    Just wanted to show and tell a bit. Anything special about this model?
    Thanks

    Not uncommon every Smith Collector has at least one :)

    I could look this up in my books and post it here but I need the exact caliber, barrel length and the serial number.

    I started to disagree. My 6 1/2" nickel K frame with the pearl grips and the acorn on the ejector rod is a 32/20, and I figger that'un to be 38 Special. So I was gonna say, "I ain't got one". Then I 'membered. I do have a pre-Model 10. But it's a 2". :p
