[QUOTE][/Hmmm, the SN puts it at 1974/75 but, the SCSW shows the -2's didn't start till 1977.

The gun was purchased from an old Smith employee that was somesort of Rep./ Training person for LE. maybe it was a trial to see if there was a market for a 6shot snubby.

Thanks so much for the info.

my tyrn now?

Let's see if I can do this right first time.
Model is a blue 10-7. 4 inch thin barrel. SN 4D49700.
The finish is horrible and there are many dings, but the mechanics are as good as they can be. Rock solid lock up, excellent accuracy and shoots to POA with factory equivalent 158gr TC slugs.

1961 and -1's are scarce and worth a premium.

Thanks Jim. I think I'll buy her tomorrow. Condition is very, very good. The checkering on the hammer spur is still very crisp and sharp. Grips appear original. Checkering on top of revolver is also in very good shape. Finish is probably a solid 96-97%. Based upon what limited info you have here, would you think $550 - $600 range is reasonable?

A friend has a 5 shot .38 special revolver, looks a bit old, says 'Airweight' on the barrel (about 3.5"), and is marked 'Mod-37'. It's serial number 604xxx. Can anyone tell me the age of this one?

Serial number puts it in 2004. Your description leaves 3 possibles I know of, Models 637, 638, or 642. All sale for about $600 new and about $450 used.

New old gun

I just bought a S&W 357 model 586 Nickel plated as it has a letter N stamped in the cylinder. ( And the SS was called 686) Could you help me with the year for this gun? The serial is ADN29XX.( no dash) The Cylinder also has a set of numbers 311xx and the C5 stamped on it. Any ideas about this mark?
I appreciate any assistance. Many thanks in advance.

1983. I think the letter N on the cylinder is for Nickel. The other numbers are factory assembly numbers.

Dazed and Confused (situation Normal)

I purchased this S&W several years ago. I used to carry it in my business. I'd like to know the model and any other info on the weapon. It's a short barrel. stainless steel, small frame with S&W .357 MAGNUM on the right side of barrel and SMITH & WESSON on the left side. Serial number is AER 81**. Is it a J frame? Barrel length is about 2"

The SN dates it to 1984. Since S&W didn't make J frame 357's in 1984 yours must be a K frame. The model number is stamped on the frame forward of the cylinder. You have to open the cylinder to see it.

Jim

The one in this pic is a 629-1.
