Frank,

Serial Nr. 30K83XX dates to 1978

All model 15's should have a "K" serial number prefix, which means the other two serial numbers you indicate probably are not Model 15's.

S9707XX -- This is most likely be a post-war model 10 (fixed sights).

6312XX -- Without a letter prefix, this should be a pre-war or WW-II production revolver. Without more detail, exactly which gun is hard to say.

Bill,
Your K-22 would have been shipped in 1955.
