    .38 special Smith & Wesson Model 10 Victory. Made sometime during WWII, made for the US market (not a british lend lease) . 620*** serial number. 95% excellent condition considering it almost being 70 years old. Looking for $400 or shoot me other offers on a trade, worst i can say is no. **added 2 H.K.S speed loaders

    Does it have a V in front of the serial number?

    Do you happen to have the lanyard loop for it?

    Nope, not sure if there ever was one. There are no threads or broken pieces in the small hole on the bottom.

    FYI, because it hasn't apparently been addressed:

    As he said, it's "V" prefix for sure
    It had a butt swivel "lanyard loop" originally, since removed.
    It has 0% of the original war-time parkerized-type finish, but about 98% or more of a later yet apparently quality re-blue.
    the gun was beyond question NOT a late-war Victory as stated. It was "early" or "mid" at the best.

    I have bit my tongue for a few days but just want to help buyers/sellers get on the same page. If you are a buyer of a real WWII Victory and a lack of true finish does not freak you out, this is a good looking gun. The important part is this is a real US .38 special, vs. the much more prolific 5" .38 S&W guns the british bought, then sold back commercially and confused the issue. This is, at least, a real US gun, not a Brit lend/lease later with faked caliber.

    Sorry to interject; just hope I can help.
