Any info on a S&W Mod 64-6, serial number CER57XX
2000/01.

Quote:
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.
SN 40XX would be a first year production (1899) .38 Military & Police 1st Model.
Not sure about the hammer, a picture would be nice!
Value depends on condition, running $1K+ in excellent.

Quote:
S&W Model 25 in 38 Spcl. SN K3994XX
Model 25's are 45 caliber. Your serial number dates it to 1960 and is likely a model 14 or 15.

Quote:
S&W, Model 29 N310XXX
~1975.

Thanks Jim, I appreciate the info. I have been on a bunch of websites saying it was from 1899, but I couldn't believe it. Condition is great and i'll get a picture of the hammer on here soon. I can't find anything similar to compare it to, but it is just shorter. It is actual hard to cock without some slight trigger pull for assistance.

Thanks again, and i'll get a picture on here in the next few days

yet another S&W serial, number question.

Would someone please look this one up?
It's a .38 special, 4 in. tapered barrel, adjustable rear sight. Stock looking wood grip and is if very good condition.
SN. K724***
Under the cylinder hindge reads the following..R724*** MOD. 16-2
I'd like to know the year, any interesting info (I can find a model 16 .32, but not a .38) and if +P ammunition will be safe with this revolver.

Thanks in advance.

Serial number dates it to 1967.
Model 16's are only chambered in .32 caliber.
Yours with a 4" tapered barrel in 38 would likely be a model 15.
Yes, you can use +P.

I vowed not to be coming on here asking somebody else to figure this out for me, but then I thought, why not? Isn't that what this forum is for?

So, how about a S&W 67-1 with serial number AEP02xx?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, your gun falls into that wide range that SCSW lists for the M&Ps: from 1915 (SN 241704) to 1942 (SN 700000). That's about 458,000 guns over 27 years - or about 17,000 per year, so interpolating would place yours around 1931, but that's only a rough approximation.

Thanks, Flyfish.

The numbers were kind of confusing when I tried to look it up. Do you know when the knurled knob on the end of the ejector rod changed to a plain tip? Mine has the knob, as well as the charcoal blue finish, and checkered walnut stocks with no medallions.

Murdock - The book doesn't mention when the ejector rod was changed - indeed, doesn't mention any similar types of small changes over the 1915 to 1942 period, except for serrated front and rear tangs being introduced on the target models around 1923.

The section on grips says the walnut grips with no medallions were used on square butt models only from about 1920 to 1929, so the latter part of that period is certainly consistent with the approximate date based on your serial number.

You might try asking over at the S&W Forum where many of the real experts hang out.

I can't get on the S&W forum to join or ask questions. Something about my e-mail address prevents my registration from being accepted. Apparently those with gmail and hotmail, among others, aren't honored there for some arcane reason.

Murdock - I posted the details on your gun over on the S&W Forum and will let you know if anyone responds.

Murdock - two responses so far, both say 1925-26, probably early 1926.

Thanks. Looks like your guess was pretty close.

That rule was instituted due to a few individuals who were banned. They would continue to re-register using different free email accounts and cause trouble.
