sounds like a good idea. I have the few of these old revolvers and a lot of fun to shoot.Timing good has the Smith positive cylinder lockup, you know the little cutout on the back. Got's me 38 S&W ammo. Got a little 2 shot derringer that takes it and that thing is fun to shoot. Also have a 38 Spl derringer and a 22.
But out of all 3 the S&W is less recoil then the Spl and not as annoying as the 22lr. Those tend to expand more and you end up helping the manual extractor out with a little manual leverage.
Might clean it up and have it Cerakoted.
