S&W 17-3 Age, Value

I have a S&W 17-3 SN 741XX and wonder about it's age.
Also, there is a 1"X3/16" patch of light rust on the barrel- a piece of paper in the case attracted moisture. It has light rust under the wooden grips as they also collected moisture. I would like to know how much the rust will detract from it's value.
Thanks for any help.

S & W mosdel 36 DOB

Went out to eat after church and my wife asked me what revolvers were on my bucket list. I told her I had a long list but realy wanted a Model 36 to replace the one I sold 40+ years ago. Stopped in gun shop and there in the case was a model 36-2. It was like new just a faint turn ring so it came home with me. I have been told Christmas is coming so I can not purchase the SMITH 8 WESSON BOOK. I can't wait ,so here is the sn BDU54xx. Thank you J

S198XXX
Serial numbers ran from S194500 in 1959 to S206999 in 1960.
Value depends on condition and can range from around $500 to well over 1K in mint.

S&W 17-3 SN 741XX
Take the serial number from the underside of the frames grip butt. You may have to remove the grips to see it. There will be a "K" in the serial number.

That said, 17-3's were made from 1967 to 1977.

As far as the rust, it will detract from the value. As far as how much, it depends on how much it bothers a potential buyer.

AYDxxxx = 1987.
ABYxxx = 1983.

CCS is 1998 and the special order number dates it to boxed/shipped on the 124 day of 1998.

S&W 586-4 rare 3-inch - Info requested

Today I saw what I'm told is an extremely rare 3-inch 586-4. It has a special order #4214 on the box. It has rubber grips that were said to be original.

Looking for a D.O.B. on serial #BRU4nn. Any other information you have on production numbers, story behind the special order, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Wade

Sorry, I missed that one. BHN = 1992.

Is the chambering on the barrel just .38 S&W or .38 Special / .38 S&W Special?
Is there a "V" prefix near the serial number, it may be 1/2" or so from the number.

1994. The special order number 4214 dates it to the 214th day of 1994.

There should be a 6 digit product code number on the box also. That number would help me to identify it better since there were 3 different releases with the 3" barrel.

jimmersback,

SN 7499xx would date to around 1940.
It's a S&W model K-200. They were sold to England as the .38/200 British Service Revolver chambered in 38 S&W (not to be confused with 38 special).
Allot of these found their way back to the USA thru such companies as Parker Hale in England.

1968.
SN's ran from D1 to D90000 that year.

.
That was a special run of 3" 586's made for RSR distributors in the mid 90's.
The SCSW does not break it out any further.
The guys over on the S&W forum might be able to give you more information about it.

jimmersback,

Hard to say but I'd guess about $500.

The SCSW only covers up to 2004. Your SN is post 2004.
You can call S&W's customer service and they will give you the DOB over the phone for free.

1-800-331-0852 (USA)
Mon-Fri 8:00AM-8:00PM Eastern Time

1997.
That is a really good price for that gun. A 686-4 with the 2.5" barrel would sale for around $650 here in the US.
It is one of the best made 357 revolvers.
