was gifted a S&W "Victory" model today!

Dad decided to give me some of his guns this morning instead of watching them sit around un-used.
Among them is a V-model S&W (pre-#10) .38 spl.
the serial # gives a delivery date of early 1944 for possibly Coast Guard or state-side reserve use.....i'll delve deeper into the serial # history of this particular revolver later, but it's def. not a re-bore....all the stampings are U.S. & .38 spl.
it's always been a damned accurate gun and a natural "point-shooter".

Photobucket is down for maintenance, but pics will come later
