Interesting. According to SCSW, only the models I listed were produced with SNs starting with a "D". Looks like another instance where the book might not have the whole story (or maybe I don't).

prehaps I am mistaken. I purchased it from Summit Gun Broker.

Side of the barrel is stamped 38 s&w special otg


EDIT
I'm assuming +p is a no no out of a non +p pistol such as this?

Look inside the area of the frame that's exposed when you swing the cylinder out - the model number will be stamped there. The M64 is a stainless version of the [blued steel] M10 - the basic, fixed-sight, .38 Special, Smith revolver.

The 1974 date that the SN corresponds to is consistent with the time that the -1 variation of the M64 was in production, so it appears that SCSW just fails to mention that the "D" SN prefix was also used for M64s.

Interestingly, the book also notes that some of the 64-1s were chambered for .357 Magnum as a special production run for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and that variation was the prototype for the Model 65 (even though in the discussion of the M65, they say it was introduced earlier than the .357 Model 64 - go figure).

I can't find an answer to your question about whether a 64-1 is OK with +p, but Jim or someone else will likely be along to help with that.

And you got it for a good price. The used ones around here have been running $550+.

I have a 642-1 that I bought used. The serial number is CDP-4XXX. If anyone could tell me the approximate date of manufacture I'd really appreciate it. I know it's not very old, but I just would like to know when the gun was made approximately.

Can someone please date my gun

I've recently inherited a smith and wesson model 10 revolver with a case that is dated 1899, which turns out to be the first year the revolver was produced. the serial number is only 5 digits and they are 451XX. I left the last 2 numbers off for privacy (I'm not sure if privacy should be a concern or not). If someone can give me the DOB based off of this info, it would be greatly appreciated!

A 38 Military & Police (which became the Model 10 around 1957) with a serial number of 451XX would date to 1903/04 and would be a Model of 1902, 1st Change.
However, it would not be stamped as a model 10.

Also, are you saying you have the original box?

S&W model and year??

I just recieved an old revolver from my grandfather along with an old single shot 20ga. I am having a little trouble figuring out what model it is and I would also like to know what year it is.

Its a S&W .38 special, six-shot with 5 inch barrel. It has fluted cylinder, fixed sights, and checkered walnut grips. I believe its a M&P. Serial number is 4-digits starting with 40xx. Mine is identical to this one (see attached photo) except mine has 5" barrel, this appears to be 6". Mine also has a smaller/shorter hammer. I would really appreciate it if someone could let me know what model it is, what year it is, and if possible what it may be worth. I would never sell it, but I'm curious.

Thank you
