Not sure if it makes a difference, but instead of a 36, if you don't mind, look it up as a 37.

Thanks for the super FAST help!
Steve

S&W Model 57

Anyone have an idea of the approximate date this revolver was manufactured? It is a Model 57 with the hammer attached firing pin (not a transfer bar) and there is no "dash" after the Model number. The serial # is N6916xx.

Thank you

Late 79 to early 80 is best I can do with "the book".

Made partial year 1988, so not a lot of them floating around.

If you have a heavy barrel, with bobbed hammer and it is a 65-3 3" barrel it was made for US Customs. But the serial # you list does not match with my Standard Catalog of S&W. Are you sure of model & ser numbers?

Thanks. The hammers are not bobbed, but they are 65-3's.

I'm thinking you need to send pictures and ser# to Roy at S&W and find out what you have number wise. I am sure not all 65-3 went to US Customs and those would possibly be of your ser # range, however it just may have been a very small number for civilian use.

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.
