Hello,
I was unable to locate a replacement base for the magazine, but used to when mag wells were added to 1911s, we would glue a piece of hard rubber or plastic to the base. You may have to shape it to match up. Easy fix if you have the materials.

Suspicious!!!! A chief of police not knowing it as a 9mm or stating manufacture? Just a bit odd.that you are asking very fundimental question when if you were a trained law enforcement officer you would have the answer and if you really had a problem your department armor would be your source for answers

A quick check at Winchester Museum seems it was made late in 1918, There are places online that can get you down to who proof fired it. I just wanted to see if I could quickly locate records.
Hope this helps. Be Well Stay Safe

Tip

Fire Arms Safety on line


Be cautious about posting serial numbers pictures and personal data online, there are far to many out there who want to take advantage of you. A serial number with a picture can result in a claim against your ownership. Don't do it!

If you need information on dates, values ect Start with free online blue book values, GunDigest, and other repudible sites. For parts Start with Gunpartscorps.com, most parts requests do not need a complete serial number.

The Model 36 was introduced in 1936 by Marlin Firearms as an improved version of the Model 1893. Around the time of the First World War, Marlin dropped the "18" and started calling the Model 1893, the Model 93. But no significant change in the gun's design took place. In the period between the wars, metalurgy was changing, as were manufacturing techniques. So Marlin upgraded the Model 93 and re-designated it the Model 1936. This moniker lasted only one year, and in 1937 it became the Model 36.
Model 36s were made until the Second World War. In 1948, the Model 36 was redesigned and modernized again and was given a round bolt to replace the square . The model number was again changed to Model 336. Lots of versions and lots of small changes have been made since, but variations of the Model 336 are still in production.

Decoding H&R serial numbers is not easy and it takes up quite a bit of the H&R book as different models usually have seperate serial number series. gererally speaking there were three types of serial number series.
Pre 1905 (1904 and before) which were more like batch numbers and usually ran from 1 to 99,999. on some models there was a different series every year.
Post 1904 (1905 to 1939) one single series starting at 1 and going into the middle 6 digits (some third model auto-ejecting revolvers have been observed with number in the 800,000 range.
Ift here does not look like there are any markings on the left side of the barrel other than the caliber this would be the premier model fitted with extra cost oversize grips and 6 inch barrel. during the same time (1925-1934)frame H&R offered this revolver as the H&R TARGET (aka model 766) the only difference was H&R Target was marked on the barrel. by the time the premier model was fitted with a longer barrel and oversize grips the cost was about the same for the two models. the offering of the H&R Target model was just another way to try to sell more revolver. factory serial numbers are not available for this model so i believe this revolver was manufactured before the H&R Target was introduced in 1924 (most likely 1920 to 1923)
below is information of both models.

H&R PREMER SECOND MODEL SMALL FRAME TOP BREAK R.F. & C.F. ----------1905-1941
Small fame double action top break revolver with double top post barrel latch; calibers and cylinder capacity, 22 rimfire-7 rounds, 32 S&W, 5 rounds; automatic cylinder stop; standard finish Nickel with case harden hammer and barrel latch; standard barrel length 3 inches, with 2, 4, 5 and 6 inches available as optional; HAS CALIBER MARKINGS ON LEFT SIDE OF BARREL WAS MANUFACTURED FOR SMOKELESS POWDER CARTRIDGE PRESSURES.
There has not been enough data gathered on serial number to try to come up with a serial number range for the different variations.
First Variation, model name & caliber marked on left side of barrel, patent dates 5-14-89, 4-2-95, 4-7-96---------------1905-Only
Second Variation, model name & caliber marked on left side of barrel, patent dates 4-2-95, 4-7-96-------------------1906-1908
Third Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel, patent date 10-8-95-------1909-1913
Fourth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel, no patent date, state not spelled out in address (MASS)---------1914-1915
Fifth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel same as 4th except different font used in barrel markings----------1914-1915
Sixth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel. State name in barrel marking spelled out (MASSACHUSETTS)-----1916-1924
Seventh Variation, new grip frame, there is no step down for the grip panels to fit into-----1925-1942
After 1930 listed in catalogs as; PREMIER No. 30 .22 Rimfire 7 shot & PREMIER No. 35.32 S&W 5 shot
VALUE: 100%=$265 60%=$75 Add 10% premium for blue finish; 20% premium 4", 5" or 6" barrel; 20% premium for 22 rimfire caliber; 10% premium for 7th variation
If this is a top break it is a H&R Premier model manufactured in the 1924 to 1930 era or one of its variations. if it is a solid frame model it is a model 1906 or one of its variations manufactured in the 1932 to 1937 era. without a picture or knowning the exact markings i can't give you an exact model.
1940 and after letter codes used to denote year of manufacture. starting with A in 1940 and going to BC in 1986.
Caliber markings on the side of the barrel ALWAYS indicate 1905 or after manufacture. when H&R made the switch to smokeless powder in 1905 they started marking the caliber on the left side of the barrel of all their handguns. no caliber markings = black powder, caliber markings = smokeless powder.
Please keep in mind that H&R did not always obey their own rules and there are exception to every rule. during 1890 though 1904 H&R was manufacturing so many top break revolvers they starting using a letter code after 100,000 had been reached. these letter code were stamped along with the serial number on the bottom of the top strap (the cylinder had to be removed to see this location).
Hammerless Bicycle models (1899-1920). the caliber markings and 6 digit serial number indicate it is a second model and if in good condition it should be safe with modern ammo. the bicycle hammerless (small frame, 2 inch barrel) is serial numbered in the same series as the regular small frame hammerless model.

T C1 to C223998 as 1948 to 1951.
The K frame 38 was S&Ws bread and butter gun, it was in production starting in 1899 as the M&P.
