I'm pretty sure they weren't for civilian because I bought them from a dealer that sells surplus stuff (he had a lot of these and still has other for sale). I was thinking about getting a letter for one because I'm sure the second would have went to the same place, right?

Makes sense to me. They could be just later date of mfg then the ones "The Book" shows, but I kind of think the book just may not be total right about the Ser# range.

One thing about the US C guns is they will be stamped, do these guns appear to have the stamps buffed out?

How much did you have to pay for those two beauties? They should make nice CCW pieces, little large and heavy for pants pocket carry, but IWB and coat pockets should be excellent. I would not shoot a lot of hot 357 Mag in the K frame, but use 38 spl for target work or if reloading light load your target ammo. By a lot I mean compatition or or several hundred rounds weekly, as the K from will shake loose and need to be sent back to S&W for repair. However with average of couple hundred rounds per year of standard factory or even warm handloads that 357 should out last you.

I would love to have one myself.

I recently inherited this old S&W .38 spc 6 shot revolver from an old co worker. I'd love to know how old it might be, or anything else its serial reveals about it.

Ratsnest, Mod 36 - 62-64. You'll have to call S&W to narrow down further.
96dcmss, Mod 686 - 2000
Taykaim, Mid to late 60's. You'll have to call S&W to narrow it down further.

Hey guys, I have a 686 but can't remember when I bought it. I think the mid 80's. Anyway the SN is AVC-XXX then below that is 686-1. Now inbtween the SN and model there is an M stamped there.

Thanks in advance for any information that can be found.

I've just recently acquired a 3rd Generation 4566TSW and was curious if anyone could give a ball park figure on when it may have been manufactured. The serial number is BDX1752. I'm thinking maybe around 2000-2002 but just guessing.

Model 29-3

Just bought a flawless...
S & W / MODEL 29-3 / Ser. # AJF 8xxx

My buddy had it for years, but only shot 6 rounds through it. It had been in his safe, for all these years, so he offered to sell it & said he'd take $300.
(was gonna buy an LCP for one of his kids)

The finish is flawless, even all the lettering is still "golden".
Though I dislike the Pachmayr grips which are on it, this is the prettiest blue steel I've seen.
It's surely worth more, than I paid, but have no clue as to how much.

Any idea of manuf. date And/Or appx value?

*This pic doesn't do it justice...as the finish is flawless, doesn't even seem to have been holstered, just kept in a case*

I will now post a link here of another forum, because I don't think I'm allowed to reproduce its content in this forum. Many asking for dates will find their answer here:

Late 1960's, quite possibly 1968 is the best I can tell you.

how far do the numbers go?

I haven't bought a S&W in a long long time....
but I was fondling a 5906 today that I was really really growing partial too

TEA***, but the box and papers aren't with it....

around a 1994 model? I had a 2nd Edition of the S&W catalog, but since moving I haven't been able to find the box it is in
