what about a model 10-6 ? "C6585xx" on the butt & "D039xx" in front of the cylinder - just noticed that tonight. are non matching numbers unusual?
C6585XX = 1963/64.
When you say D039XX is in front of the cylinder are you refering to it's stamped on the frame or on the actual cylinder?

thank you very much - '63 or '64 sounds like good years for +P ammo

That's an assembly number. And +P is okay.

You have a 38 Military and Police Model of 1905, 4th Change.
They were made from 1915 at SN 241704 thru 1942 at SN 1000000.
With your SN of 582XXX I'm guessing 1920's.

295000 started 1962 till 786544 at 1969, so about 1965ish.
Because it's a alloy frame it is not recommended for +P. However, many folks have used +p with no ill effects.

1979/80. The model number should be stamped on the frame just forward of the cylinder. You'll have to open the cylinder to see it.

38 M&P model of 1905, 1st change. Made from 1906 to 1909. Value depends on condition.

Thanks. That's in line with what I was guessing. Unfortunately, granddad didn't leave much in the way of notes, so all I know is that he was pretty accurate with it, and it still shoots great. I keep it on a diet of relatively light loads, and clean it well after each range trip, as I suspect he did, (I sometimes think he shot mostly to have an excuse to clean and oil the guns again) so the finish still looks good.

"K" 279XXX would be 1956. Known as the "K22 Masterpiece" they went on to become the Model 17 when S&W started assigning model numbers in 1958.

Unfortunantly, the "book" only covers their auto pistols up to 1998. A call to S&W customer service will get you a DOB over the phone for free.
