    Hello I am new to glock talk and I guess this is where I should ask this type of question. I build my own open class Glock raceguns but I decided to send my 627pc off to BC Armory for work. Anyone have any experience with Bruce Warren @ BC Armory?

    Best way to find out when shipped is to call S&W.

    Mod 37 ADB @ 1983

    686-3 BEW @ 1989

    Late 1972 early 1973. You´re good to go with any 38 sp +P ammo from a reputable manufacturer. All K frames are. +P+ is not a SAAMI spec and thus of unknown values, specially from dubious manufacturers. You might also find this article by Saxonpig in the Smith and Wesson forum quite informative on the subject.
