Ranges from around $250 in very good to close to 1K in "as new".

Values run a little higher than your other one.

Not to question your expertise, but are you sure the second one is a .38 cal?

Well, no... but since you said you had another I assumed it was the same caliber.

So, what cal is it?

There are two versions of the .32 single action that fall in that serial number range:
A top-break in 32 centerfire and a tip-up in .32 rimfire. Which do you have?

Then it would be a .32 Single Action (Model One and a Half Centerfire).
Serial nunbers ran from 1 in 1878 to 97574 in 1892.

Value ranges from around $250 in very good to over 1.2K in "as new".

10-5 would be correct and should be stamped on the side on the frame (just forward of the cylinder) that's only visable when the cylinder is open.

Good evening - I inherited a S&W 357 Magnum and would like to have an idea of its age. SN K58xxx Looks like there could possibly be a 4 or a triangle before the sn. Any info would be appreciated! (age, approx value)

K58xxx dates it to before a K frame in 357 was offered.
The number preceding the K58xxx is important. If it's a 4 then 4K58xxx = 1974.

Smith & wesson

I have a Smith & Wesson revolver 6 shot, 4" barrell and the only numbers on it are on the butt of the grip. The numbers are 5675 and I can not find the value or any information about it on the WEB. Does anyone know where I can find out how old it is or its value?

Got to figure out what model it is first. Caliber? (chambering should be stamped on the side of the barrel) Any letters near those numbers? Any patent dates on the top of the barrel? Modern swing out cylinder or old style top break?

EDIT: see post further down.

1981.
SN's ran from 7D10001 to 9D44500 that year.

Frank Ray Hunt,

I see in another thread you listed the caliber as 22LR.
That would make it a .22/32 Kit Gun Model of 1953 (Model 34).
Serial numbers ran from 101 in 1953 to 135465 in 1969.
The model 34 featured 2" or 4" barrels and the model 35 was 6".

Value ranges from around $300 in good to $750+ in "as new"

I think it is a model 10

I have a revolver that looks like a model 10 but has no 10- in the frame. 6 shot it also has the serial number stamped on the back of the cylinder. I have never seen that before. It has the large S&W logo on the right side of the frame. .38 S&W special. serial number is c223xxx
Can I find out if it is a model 10 and the DOB approx value in good cond.
Thank you in advance
ED

I have a S&W Model 60 with a serial number R169XXX. Can someone look up the year and type? Can this handle +P ammo?

SN's ran from C1 in 1948 to C223998 in 1951.
So, unless you have C223999 it was made in 1951.
Around $300

SN's ran from R100000 in 1974 to R190000 in 1977.
Yes on +P.
