How do you break the hammerless revolver?

We need some more information to answer your question- starting with the word "break". Many of the early hammerless revolvers were a "break action", when the revolver was loaded/ unloaded by lifting a latch at the top rear of the frame. This permitted the action to be pivoted open (or broken), and the fired cartridges ejected, and new cartridges inserted. If you mean "break" as in destroy, that is too broad to answwer here. Please feel free to leave a message on my message board, and we will try to get you a good answer.

What is the name of vash the stampede's gun from trigun?

Vash's gun is supposedly custom made but when it's not in "angel arm" form, it mostly resembles a combination between the Mateba Autorevolver (for its barrel is aligned with the bottom of the cylinder instead of the top) and the Schofield Revolver (for its break action style for a revolver). When it is in Angel-Arm Form, it is simply known as the "Angel Gun" or "Angel Arm" Check out the Chiappa Rhino revolver. It does not break like Vash's gun but the barrel and cylinder are located towards the bottom of the revolver.

38 smith and Wesson stamped on side of barrel 38hammerless with warner arms corp norwich conn stamped on top of barrel any info would help?

The Warner Arms Corp was established in 1912 and marketed revolvers, rifles, semi-automatic pistols, and shotguns made for them by other companies including N.R. Davis & Sons, Ithaca Gun Company, and so forth. In 1917, the company was purchased by N.R. Davis & Company. Under Warner, the .38 caliber revolver is only described as a double action or a double action hammerless. You state that the gun is marked ".38 Smith & Wesson", which is a black powder round first introduced in 1880 by Smith & Wesson and was most often seen in break top revolvers. The round is relatively low power and the break top action is inherently weak, so the two went well together. During that time frame, the break top was very popular. Under Davis-Warner, only a .32 revolver is discussed and it is a swing out cylinder meaning that it is a solid frame revolver. You have an old gun which, if in good condition or better, is worth less than $100 to a collector. If the condition is VG or Exc, the value is somewhat higher, but not astronomical. This is a collector gun, not a shooter. It may be able to be shot, but it's best if it isn't.
