OxyGuy, in your opinion was the written made in S&W factory or later?
I would say later (I see you asked oxyguy). Usually such markings are applied by the institution or group who bought the gun(s), not the factory. Judging by the pic, it does not appear to be something S&W would do, although its possible they could have.

Normally, where is located in the gun the mark "CS-3"?
The "CS-3" will not be marked since the gun is a model 686. Any such model markings will be located in the yoke area, after you swing out the cylinder. It is the revealed portion in the frame underneath the rear portion of the barrel. I would guess it to be marked "MOD 686-5" or something to that effect, with the SN underneath of that. Thats how they marked usually.
