I have a Smith and wesson .32 long Pistol CTG

It has patent dates of febuary 6 1906, September 14 1909, and December 29 1914, on the barrel. It also has a patent June 5 1914 on the bottom of the wood handle.

Serial number is 446122. Its on the frame by the handle. And also under the ejector arm on the barrel.

Can you help me on the value and the year it was made. Its in good shape. Thanks

It's a .32 Hand Ejector Third Model.
Serial numbers ran from 263001 in 1917 to 536684 in 1942.
Values range from around $300 in good to >$700 as new in box.

Today I bought a used 642-2 that looks almost brand new. The serial # is CME1861. I also have a Model 60-14 serial # DTE2214 that I also don't know the production year for. They both have locks so I'm assuming they are 2002 or later. Any help finding the year of manufacture is much appreciated. Thanks!

They're later than mid 2004, the last year the SCSW covers.
You'll have to get the DOB from S&W customer service which is free over the phone.

Model 686-3 6 inch

I need help and this seems to be the place to turn to. I've got a friend that wants to sell me his S&W .357 w/6 inch barrel and I am trying to find out when it was made and whether the $400 that he has offered it to me for is a good deal. Can anyone help me?

Model 686-3

And yes, $400 is a good price. I usually see them sell around the $500 range in this area.

I have an old Smith $ Wesson revolver that was passed down from my great grandfather.

I believe it is one of the M&P 38's

The left side of the barrel is marked 38 S&W Special & U.S. Service CTG's

The patent dates on the right side begin with April 9, 89 and end with July 7, 03

The serial number under the barrel by the ejector rod is 125xxx.

The revolver is nickel plated with a 4" barrel.

Any information would be appreciated.

johnsb:
You have a .38 Military & Police Model of 1905 1st change manufactured between 1906 & 1909 in the serial range 73251 to146899.
the US Service CTG markings refer to the .38 Long Colt cartridge, which was the standard US army round at the time and can also be chambered in .38 special guns.
Your gun predates heat treatment of cylinders, so avoid use of PlusP, +P+ or jacketed ammunition. Stick to standard velocity lead rounds and you should be fine.
Your gun also predates the modern internal hammer block safety introduced in 1944. It would be prudent to leave the chamber under the hammer empty if you are keping the gun loaded.
Nickel was a factory option, if the hammer and trigger are color case hardened (straw colored) then it may be the original finish.
Value is not high as several million Military & Police revolvers were manufactured. in 2006 the Standard Catalog of S&W gave a value of $385 in excellent condition.

jdawg:
As a general rule of thumb, factory letters will add to the value of a rare specimen or if it shows it was shipped to a person of historical interest. getting a factory letter ofr a 686 will probably not add anything to the value.

S&W K frame

I have a S&W K frame in 38 special but I don't have it here unfortunately but I do know the serial number it's 520xxx and would like to know when it was made.

Hope this is enough info if not I'll get back later this month when I bring it back from the midwest.

IF the whole SN is 520XXX and it does not have a letter prefix (K,D,V or C),
then it's a 38 Military & Police 4th Change made around 1930, give or take a few years.
