    Honestly, it is going to be very difficult for anyone here to give you a true answer to this.

    If the caliber isn't stamped on the gun (usually down the side of the barrel), guessing is nearly impossible. Your best bet is to contact S&W directly, provide them with the serial number, and they may be able to tell you all of that.

    Edit- When you say "breakdown" do you mean break open? Does the barrel and cylinder break open and swing down away from the grip while still remaining attached?

    My husband is a master gunsmith, I will ask him. But I have to know if this is a revolver or a long rifle.
