The 10-5 was produced from 1962 through 1977. 1977 was the change to the model 10-7. S&W forums may have the info you want or you can pony up some cash and get a letter from Mr. Roy Jinks the historian/research person at S&W

Not even close.

Rawhide,

Your serial number of 2D0xxxx dates the gun to 1977.

CDCxxxx would be early 1999.

Hello,

What would the info (date/model) concerning a S&W-like revolver with s/n 1108XX be? (no letter in front of the s/n)

The s/n is engraved on the bottom side of the handle

Unfortunately it has NO other stamps/marks etc.
This is what leads me to the idea that it could be a "clone" manufactured under license (like the ones produced in Spain or France)

From photos I have seen sent to me by the collector it is identical to the pre WWI M&P model. (maybe a 2nd change mod. 1905?)
Here are some pics.

Thanks,

KframeSW38,

The complete lack of markings does make it suspect. Although, I suppose they could have been polished off during a refinish. Hard to tell from the pics. There were no licensed clones.
Assuming it is a S&W and chambered in 38 Special, the serial number would make it a .38 Military & Police model of 1905, 2nd Change. SN's ran from 73251 in 1906 to 146899 in 1909.
If it's not a S&W then all this means nothing.

Thanks for the reply!

It IS indeed a S&W as I managed to trace what is left grom the logo engraved, after blueing the gun.

Is there any possibility to know the caliber from the s/n?

There is nothing else (left) engraved on the revolver.

I am not sure if it is a .38 or a .32-20.........................

No. Both models used the same serial numbers concurrently.
If it's a 32/20 it would be a .32 Hand Ejector model of 1903, 5th Change. Serial numbers ran from 102501 in 1910 to 263000 in 1917.
BTW, a 32/20 would have a substantially larger hole at the back of the cylinder vs. the front.

Lew Horton 66-3

I have a lew horton 66-3. The serial number starts with PCP. Any clues on it's age, and value? It's 8/10 with aftermarket walnut grips.
Thanks!

1993. I don't know on the value but would guess about $1K or more depending if you have original packaging and it's actual condition.

Thanks Jim

That's about what I figured on the price. Wasn't sure on the year, but knew it was somewhere in there.

The gun is in real good condition, especially considering it's age. It was used, but not much. No papers or box, unfortunately.
