Make: Smith & Wesson

Model: .38 Military & Police “Victory” Model

Serial Number: V370209

Year of Manufacture: 1942 - 1944

Caliber: .38 Special

Action Type: Single and Double Action Revolver with Swing-Out Cylinder

Markings: The top of the barrel is marked “SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD MASS. U.S.A / PATENTED FEB. 6. 06. SEPT. 14. 09. DEC. 29. 14”. The left side of the barrel is marked “SMITH & WESSON”, the right side of the barrel is marked “38 S. & W. SPECIAL CTG” and the barrel flat is marked “V370209”. The yoke cut is marked “F”, “28176” and the yoke is marked “28176”. The rear face of the cylinder is marked “V” and “370209”. The underside of the extractor star is marked “370209”. On the left side of the grip frame is an upside-down “A”, while the grip frame’s right side is marked “V370209”, “E5” and “8”. The right side of the frame is marked “MADE IN U.S.A.” The right sideplate had an S&W logo that has been almost completely buffed off.

Barrel Length: 4”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a fixed half round blade. The rear sight is a square notch milled into the top frame.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The Hand Ejector style grips are smooth walnut. Both grip panels have handling and compression marks, but no notable chips, cracks or scratches. The inside of the right grip panel has “370209” pressed into the wood. The grips rate in about Good to Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Nickel

Finish Originality: Originally Matte Blue or Black

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is almost sharp. There is no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 85% of its current metal finish. The revolver was buffed and then plated over the swirls and pitting. The markings on the right side of the barrel and the right sideplate have been at least partially buffed away. The plating has flaked away in scattered areas and surface pinprick erosion has replaced it. The hammer has been plated, but the trigger still has some case coloring visible. The screw heads are almost sharp, but show signs of a screwdriver. The markings run from clear to buffed-out. Overall, this handgun rates in about Good condition.

Mechanics: The single and double actions function correctly. This is a Square Butt, K Frame revolver with a pinned barrel, finely checkered service hammer and a serrated service trigger. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a WWII era “Victory” model .38 Special revolver, that if made today would be known as a Model 10. This Revolver is in solid mechanical shape, but lacks something cosmetically. If you need a revolver for your cabin, boat, tractor or truck this may be just what you’re looking for. It still does everything a .38 Special double action revolver is supposed to do, the nickel plating will help in protecting it from rust and you’re not paying for a fancy finish that is only going to get dinged or beat up rattling around in your tool or tackle box .

This handgun CAN be sold as a Private Party Transfer (PPT) at our Simi Valley shop. All cartridge firing handguns (even C&R's and antiques) sold to a California resident must be DROS'd.
