I believe what you have there is an old Taurus Model 88 in 38 Special. Do you have the side cover and screws for it?

If it is like other revolvers I've been into, that sideplate is a custom fit. Screws can be replaced but that side plate is vital.

If I were missing parts I'd send it back to Taurus to see if they could rework it. I doubt they'd do it for free.

From that pic, it looks like you are missing the hand, transfer bar/hammer block, and perhaps the firing pin spring since the firing pin retaining pin is sticking out while the firing pin looks to be in place. Of course, the sideplate and its screws are missing like bre said.

You won't be finding any info from Taurus about that gun, it's a pre-1984 model which was imported by the former owners of Taurus. Worst part is that you have no warranty with any guns before that period either. The silver bulls head that looks as happy as a Hindu cow is a dead giveaway on it's age, and considering that you have a 1973 date inside the grip helps ID it a bit. If you look around hard enough, you may be able to piece it back into working order.

I don't know about that old of a gun but my 1985 689 had the mod# stamped on the frame and you can only see it when the cylinder is open.
