The serial number dates it to 1988 and a semi auto but does not identify the model of gun.
S&W customer service might be able to give you that information from the serial number over the phone.
Otherwise, the current owner should be able the look at the model number stamped on the side of the frame.

Since it is a .32 Winchester (also known as .32-20 Winchester) it is most likely a .32-20 Hand Ejector Model 1902, Second Model, First Change. Serial number range for this model is 9812 to 18125, with 8,313 revolvers manufactured. Made from 1903-1905.

Built on the S&W K-frame, most often found with fixed sights (rear sight is a groove in the topstrap). Certainly a collectible revolver, value varies widely depending on condition and features. Examples with factory original adjustable target sights will bring a substantial premium.

Good guess. Serial numbers ran from N500000 in 1979 to N599999 in 1980.
A true unfired "new in box" would go for at least $650 retail.

Serial #: 23,XXX
44 Special CTG
Appears to be a .44 Hand Ejector Second Model. Introduced in 1915 at s/n 15376, built on the N-frame, without the encased ejector rod and third lock features of the First Model (the famed Triple Lock).

Remained in production until 1940, though manufacture of this model was temporarily suspended (from Oct 22, 1917 to Dec 6, 1920) as a result of changeovers in production to meet wartime demand, and after the war, return to commercial production.

Most likely made in the early-mid 1920s, sorry I can't provide an exact year. Total production of this model was 17,510 revolvers. This example is the most commonly seen model: .44 Special with 6 1/2" barrel, fixed sights, blue finish and lanyard loop.

Certainly it is of interest to collectors though I won't take a guess as to value. Examples of this model chambered for other cartridges (.38-40, .44-40, or .45 Colt), or those with different barrel lengths, nickel finish, and target models with adjustable sights, carry value premiums to collectors.

I appreciate your efforts, thank you. Would you mind looking again? I happen to know the original owner died circa 1950. That's an S&W K22 (outdoorsman) 634xxx.

Thank you for the input. So I will advertise it as made in the early '30s.

JimPage, my apologies for the incorrect information. I assumed you had left off the "K" prefix, as people sometimes do.

I should have known better especially as I have the same model revolver in my collection, mine was most likely made around the mid-1930s. I made a nostalgic video about it, am posting the link here in case you are interested.

S&W .38 breakdown info needed

Greetings;

New to the forum....(by the way, great forum!)

I'm trying to find out the model and year of a breakdown hammer action .38......Serial# 185xxx

A couple pics are posted here... http://newview10.tripod.com

Also...should I leave it in it's original condition, (keep the patina, etc) or should I clean it up? I'm thinking of finding out a value & selling it.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
