The model number will be on the gun frame where the cylinder yoke closes against. The serial number should be on the bottom of the grip frame which in your case is probably covered by the rubber grip.
I am checking about the "R" as some cases it can mean the gun was refinished by S&W depending where the "R" is located on the gun. The S&W crowd said if it had been refinished by S&W the "R" would be on the grip frame and probably be an R-B for blued or R-S for stainless refinish.
