Unfortunantly the SCSW does not cover SN's for semiautos beyond 1998 and is very incomplete after 1994. That said, both the standard 3913 and 5906 were made from 1989 to 1999 with the "V" prefix SN starting in 94.
To get the exact year you can call S&W's customer service and they will give you the DOB over the phone for free.

Thank you very much.
After calling Smith&Wesson I have found it to be manufactured July of 96. Thank you again for your help. By the way the lady that answered the phone was very friendly, great customer service.
