I was wondering about my 48-4, 75K6781, and this older MP 38 Spl, two inch, square butt: 80188
75K6781 = 1980.
80188 = Assuming it's a 6 shot, SN's ran from 73251 in 1906 to 146899 in 1909. But, they were not offered with a 2" barrel.
There would be a matching serial number on the rear underside of the barrel if it's original to the gun.

It never had a model name. Production started in 1954 with it simply called the S&W 9mm pistol as it was the only 9mm S&W made. In 1957 when S&W began assigning model numbers it became the model 39.
Yours dates to ~1969.

Serial numbers ran from C622700 in 1963 to C810532 in 1965.
If all steel then it's a model 10, if alumnium frame then a model 12.

They are excellent guns. Yours was made in the early to mid 1920's.

I have a few S&Ws I'd like to know their age. Thanks in advance for your help.

First is a nickel 6 shot with 32 Long CT stamped on the pencil barrel. The cylander opens out the side. It has pearl SW grips around the size of a J frame grip. 4 inch pencil type barrel. Serial number is 1772XX. Inside the crane is stamped 4338. Other than that no markings.

S&W Model 49 2 in barrel. Wooden diamond J frame grips. Serial number 4941XX

S&W Model 15-2 I believe Stainless steel Square wooden grips. 4 inch barrel. Serial number K5838XX.
Thanks alot!

Jonathan

Odd S&W ser. #

Hi,
I have recently come upon a mod 36 Chief's special with a ser. # AWCXXXX.
I have the Supica and Jinks books and don't find that prefix anywhere. The gun is marked Mod 36, no dash number following. Any help is appreciated.

Bill

Need to figure out what model it is first. Is it a modern swing out cylinder? 5 shot or 6?

AWC would fall between AVB in Jul 87 and AWW also in Jul 87.
