It is that simple,

but you place more value in the DW revovlers than the market does-
that's a good thing for you as a buyer.

Congrats.

I think I do indeed have an oddball so to speak. It is a model 14, called the 14 service. Intended to be a cops revolver and probably issued to a cop back when new. They were available in both blued and flat finish, and the blued versions were much more rare. Called the Service because for cops it had fixed sights. It is a "fusion" as well it appears because it has the newer recessed style barrel nut like the later model 15, but the older style fixed sights. I did also find out theu happenchance that all the newer 15 style barrels will fit but will have a slightly taller sight with an insert. So.....now I have to try find a few more barrels!

An inmate who know way more than me helped clean it up and will get a chance to do some practice range stuff with it next month

I think based on the history it is the first series of the .38 special up to '72 production run.

too much pressure right? I read something about that somewhere, while trying to figure out the age of the piece etc.

I'd say it's circa 1964.

A good round would be any standard 140 grain + ball or wadcutter ammo.

I agree with The Commander on this one, try to find the cheapest .38spl in around the 140gr in either SWC or full metal jacket or even some thing cheap in JHP and soot it, it should be comfortable to shoot especially if you can find some SWC match grade stuff for it in bulk.

Ain't that just the cutest wee thing.

Learn to shoot left handed so you can "bust a cap" on your ride into work.

So way back when I posted my guns I had a single Sig P6 for a pistol. Well I used it a lot over the last two years and decided that I liked it so much and needed a good reliable pistol for carrying around at work and in the woods that I decided to buy another one for a beater sidearm. It was more money than my first one but it's beat up already and I won't feel bad about beating it up some more. The price on these things has gone up since they stopped importing them into the country.
