.38 SMITH & WESSON SPECIAL CTG
I know looking through some of the old postings that this has been covered however the pistol in question was my grandfathers and it is very special to me, I am not looking for a "worth" of it even though that would be nice so I can insure it! I really need to know more about it as far as model number and year it was made (My Grandfather developed altzheimers) and decided to take the grips off and lost the retaining screw for the grips Ill need to find this screw so I can put this pistol back together. It has all the patentent dates that the others had but is I belive an earlyer build then the others I have read about any help anyone could provide would be greatly appriciated! serial #297078 297070 patent dates are oct.09.01 dec.17.01 feb.6.06 sept.14.09 dec.29.14. some what id call arsenal stamps near all markings and the common ".38 smith&wesson special ctg" on the rh side of the barrel.
