I have one, bought used in the late 1990s. The Book doesn't have a clear date for this specific variant. The -7 suffix means its stainless steel. Since it was one of the 60 models still made in .38 Spl, it may have been part of a batch manufactured for an export contract, in the early 90s, or even earlier.
