Serial Numbers for dating

View Full Version: Smith and Wesson serial number search. Roy doesnt charge me, so I hate bothering him: A friend asked me to check on a gun his mother has inherited. It is a K, 6inch barrel, original grips. I think it is post-WWII The serial number is K xx. Thanks very much. Not very long ago, I was curious as to what year a revolver was made. He asked me what the serial number was, I told him. He said "let me look it up".

In less than 30 seconds he said it was made in I was planning on being sold a book or something. I'm not sure if I just lucked out and got the right person or what. Nonetheless, it was very reassuring that with all the calls they probably get a day he would politely take the time to lookup the information for me. Before ending the call I told him thank you very much and he replied "no problem, call us back if you need anything else".

You probably spoke to Roy. Can someone help me with identifying the model and age of a revolver i recently inherited? You can confirm that by swinging the cylinder out and looking at what's stamped on the frame inside the yoke cutout. Interesting - second K we've had in the last few days. In the unlikely event that either you or Elkins45 is interested in selling, I'd be prepared to make you a very handsome offer on the gun the production year is the same as mine, and I'd really like to have at least one revolver from that year.

You can confirm that by swinging the cylinder out and looking at what's stamped on the frame inside the yoke cutout" Looks as if it's a Model Can anyone please help me with the date on a Model with the serial number starting 17d8xxx?? Thanks for any help. Looks as if it's a Model Yes, that makes sense. Sorry, that was my oversight - I forgot the Model 13 is also included in that serial number sequence. The 13 and the 65 are basically the same gun, just blued and stainless, respectively.

Would be very near the end of - the last SN that year was 17D Would be very near the end of - the last SN that year was 17D Thanks. I recently inherited a revolver from my grandfather. It is a. I'm not sure what model it is. Any info would be great. Your gun is known as a "5-screw" because there are 4 screws holding on the side plate one hidden under the left-hand grip and an additional screw in front of the trigger guard.

Model 27s and especially the pre-model. Would be very near the end of - the last SN that year was 17D Out of curiousity, any idea how many were produced in ?? The serial is close enough to that I'd bet it were made in December, and I was born in December of that year. I'd like to figure out how many were produced during the year so I could get a per day average and see how close it is to my birthday. I am new to this forum and new to hand guns in general.

It was given to him years ago by the wife of an ex police officer. She had it several years after his death and then passed it on to dad. I was trying to date it and find out what I could. Left side of the barrel Out of curiousity, any idea how many were produced in ?? Serial numbers that year ran from 9D to 17D - I have no idea if each sequence was fully used, i. Further complicating the issue is that the same serial number sequence was being used simultaneously for about 7 different revolver models.

However, I think your logic is pretty sound, so if it were me I'd say the revolver was made in the same month I was born - i. I do not believe that the factory letter will give you an actual production date. It may give the exact date that the gun was shipped, but that's obviously not the same thing. Almost certainly a Model 10, also known as the. The gun dates from , and will have the model number stamped on the part of the frame that's exposed the "yoke cutout" when you swing the cylinder out.

I think you'll find that it's a Model 10 or same gun with tapered barrel or heavy barrel, respectively. There is an additional "S" after the SN where it is stamped under the barrel. The number ends too close to the edge of the bottom of the grip to be included there. My father was a perfectionist and cherished his firearms so it's in mint condition. Inside of the barrel is like new. Also was given all of his boxes of shells.

Remington KleanBore gr. He taped the boxes, I am guessing to keep moisture from degrading them? Only he knows. One box of flat head lead. How long to shells keep until they become unsafe? Thank you. Could anyone date a Model 17 for me? I am too far away to get the book soon! Thanks in advance! You have a postwar. Note that "38 Special CTG" is the cartridge the gun is chambered for. CAW thanks.

Smith dates, model numbers and SNs.

View Full Version: Ms B just got one of her Dad's spare service revolvers from his estate. This Model 60 is a SS snub nose. Wiki says it's the first regular production SS revolver and the reviews call the early ones 'classic' and all gave it very high marks. Question is, what exactly is it?

SW model 60, is it +P

G33 Feb 15, There is quite some give or tolerance in all these numbers. That will give you the ship date, to where, the configuration as it left the factory and some other stuff. For those of us where rough time is OK: Smith has routinely used left over parts to build transitional models, short run orders and what-not. SNs are issued in order sometimes. They have been known to go back and use fill numbers not used many years ago. Mod numbers M etc. I was so excited once when I called Mr.

A Look Back at the Smith & Wesson J-Frames

Предмет в руке Стратмора излучал зеленоватый свет. - Черт возьми, - тихо выругался Стратмор, - мой новый пейджер, - и с отвращением посмотрел на коробочку, лежащую у него на ладони. Он забыл нажать кнопку, которая отключила звук. Этот прибор он купил в магазине электроники, оплатив покупку наличными, чтобы сохранить анонимность. Никто лучше его не знал, как тщательно следило агентство за своими сотрудниками, поэтому сообщения, приходящие на этот пейджер, как и отправляемые с него, Стратмор старательно оберегал от чужих глаз.

Сьюзан опасливо огляделась.

- Не выпускай ее из приемной. Бринкерхофф кивнул и двинулся следом за Мидж. Фонтейн вздохнул и обхватил голову руками. Взгляд его черных глаз стал тяжелым и неподвижным. Возвращение домой оказалось долгим и слишком утомительным.

Телефонистка, державшая трубку у уха, мгновенно поднялась и поклонилась, увидев босса. - Садитесь! - рявкнул Нуматака. Она опустилась на стул. - В четыре сорок пять ко мне на личный телефон поступил звонок. Вы можете сказать, откуда звонили? - Он проклинал себя за то, что не выяснил этого раньше. Телефонистка нервно проглотила слюну.

Когда Ролдан заговорил, голос его звучал уже не так любезно, как прежде: - Сэр, это Агентство услуг сопровождения Белен. Могу я поинтересоваться, кто со мной говорит. - А-а… Зигмунд Шмидт, - с трудом нашелся Беккер. - Кто вам дал наш номер. - La Guia Telefonica - желтые страницы. - Да, сэр, мы внесены туда как агентство сопровождения.  - Да-да, я и ищу спутницу.
