If it doesn't have a serial number, the chances are it was removed. It might have been a case of an overzealous refinish or a purposeful obliteration. I would suggest a very close examination of the butt and crane area to see if perhaps the sn is there, but, struck weakly. There is the chance that it was made that way, but, very remote. You need to contact a lawyer who specializes in fireams.
it shoots bullets
Yes, but please use the correct term- cartridges. Not bullets. A .38 Special is basically a .357 Short, and you can safely shoot .38 Special in a .357 magnum. The opposite is NOT true.
A bullet that has left the barrel has marks left from its travel down the barrel.
For a Smith and Wesson revolver in stainless steel that shoots short bullets, you might need a 380 caliber pistol or a S&W 32 caliber revolver.
A revolver has a rotating chamber that houses the bullets a pistol has a "clip" or "magazine"
The revolver holds five.
No. <><><> Above is correct- however, ,38 Special CARTRIDGES can be used in a .357 magnum revolver. The .38 Special is actually not .38 caliber, but .357 caliber. .38 caliber bullets, such as used in the .38 S&W catridge, cannot be used.
Typically, it holds six rounds.
Probabably 22LR. Have it checked by a gunsmith.
as many as it accepts A typical "defensive" revolver holds 5-6 cartridges, but you can get revolvers that hold as many as 11.
No! They will not even fit in the chamber.
It will depend on the firearm and the exact markings on the barrel.
oneWell there is only one barrel on the gun, but it can hold 6 bullets in the standard revolver. There are variations of the gun that hold 5, 7 and 8 bullets, but those are very rare, particularly for the 7
The parts of the 38 revolver include a replaceable cylinder, ammunition, a speed loader a moon clip. The 38 revolver is basically used to fire bullets to specific targets.
Pull the triangle pin out from under the barrel and then slide the revolver out to remove bullets
It's a .38 Special revolver. +P applies to the cartridge, and indicates a more powerful load than a standard round of the calibre. In this case, it would be a .38 S&W Special with a +P loading, hence .38 Special +P. You can fire regular .38 S&W Special cartridges through it. Whether or not it can fire +P or +P+ ammo, you need to read the instruction manual and find the manufacturer's information on this.
== == The part that holds the bullets in a revolver type pistol is called the "cylinder". In an automatic type pistol it's called a "magazine".
A cowboy gun is normally a revolver, which has six holes for the bullets to go in. But the cowboy would only put five bullets in for safety reasons. It was to stop the gun firing whilst it is in his pocket.
Perhaps because the Colt revolver contained six bullets wheras the the S&W at the time only contained five bullets. also, prior to the colt revolver there was only a single shot percussion pistol. The colt gave a man 6 shots instead of a single shot. This made a big difference fighting indians.
The model 1873 Colt Army .45 revolver was about $17.00.
usually six, but if only 5 chambers then 5 rounds
He used a revolver with bullets in it NOT DAISIES!
