    I recently acquired 2 revolvers from my grandfather's estate. I am unable to determine the caliber of either pistol. I have provided all markings and the cylinder and barrel length in the hope that someone may be able to provide some info as to model and caliber and date of manufacturer.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I can look it up in the S&W Standard Catalog if you provide calibers and photos. BTW, it is not a good idea to give the entire serial number of a gun on the internet. The last two or three digits should be "xxx".
