This pistol was "acquired" while stationed in Korea in the early 70's. There is lots of corrosion, probably from being lost in the Korean war, and later picked up by a local. Any help would be appreciated so that its history would be complete.

Is the model number stamped on the frame behind the cylinder crane? I also think it looks like a 1905 or possibly an early model 10.

Yes, it is a .38 S&W special cal. I didn't seen anything like a model number stamped on it anywhere.

I have this posted on several different websites, and so far, I haven't had two people completely agree on what model it is.

Its a 1902 1st change, made about 1905. :wink: The knurled ejector rod is thew give-away... or so say the experts on the S&W forum. :D

Its even older than I thought. I just assumed that since it was "acquired" in Korea in the early 70's, it was a left over from the war.
