Snagged a S&W 10-7 Nickel Snubby Today!!!

I ran down a decent, if not spectacular, 10-7 Snub for the collection today.

There are a few corrosion spots here and there but I think she'll clean up fine.

The serial is ABS030X

Can anyone tell me when she was born?

Sorry for the crappy camera work.

My guess is 1982, someone will likely come along and correct me.

The Model 10-7 started production in 1977, logo was moved from the side plate to left side frame in 1981, 1982 pinned barrel removed and started using the 3 letter prefix, 1988 non heavy barrel model number changed to 10-9(10-8 was the same change as the 10-7 but for the heavy barreled model 10's)
My lists do not give me much info on the 3 letter 4 number serial #'s but by looking at the picture I think you are looking at some where 1982-1988.
Hope that helps till somebody chimes in with a more modern serial # list.

I'm going to say 1983.

The Standard Catalog shows ABL4000 as January, 1983, and ADE6700 as October, 1983. However, S&W control of serial numbers in that error was sometimes erratic. The Catalog does not call out the ABS series specifically.
