And you would be correct. 1960 to be exact.
SN's ran from C429741 to C474148 that year.

S&W Hand Ejector

Howdy folks!

I recently bought two S&W revolvers (I have never owned any revolvers before).
I was hoping if someone can help me with some info on the revolvers like manu date/exact model. Will load up some pictures later.

The previous owner stated that these two revolvers were S&W Hand ejectors one 38-40 and the other was a 38.

Both guns are of a 5 screw version s/n are engraved on the bottom of their handles and cylinder. There is no letting in the s/n, on the barrel there's an engraving of "32 Winchester CTG"

1st gun s/n = 197xx
2nd gun s/n = 252xx

If one is a 32 Win. then what is the chambering of the other? It should also be stamped on the side of the barrel. I assume both are 6 shot. Will need to know which gun has which serial number as S&W used the same serial numbers on different models.

It's puzzling that the previous owner thought one was a .38-40 and the other was a .38 since they are clearly both .32-20 M&P (fixed sight) revolvers.

I removed some of the data from my post. I think I was looking at the wrong info. The more I looked at it, the more I think they might both be Model of 1905 revolvers.

Someone with the Standard Catalog (Supica & Nahas) reference will soon be along.

1st gun is a .32-20 Hand Ejector model of 1905. Serial numbers ran from 18126 in 1905 to 22426 in 1906.
2nd gun is same model but a "1st Change". Serial numbers ran from 22427 in 1906 to 33500 in 1909.

Thanks much Jim, the 2J one was a scratcher more so than the other.

The N2xxxxx numbers ran from 1974 to 1977. Your's would likely be 1974.

Jim, On the 2991xx, the 36 (model) is stamped on the fore strap. What's interesting is you can see the 6 has been stamped over a 2 and to the right of that you can see a - something was ground off. Would it be a good assumption considering the change from the model 32 I frame (improved) to the 36 that there was an overlap and some 32's were re-stamped 36?

The serial number is too high for a model 32. Could you post or email some pictures?

Jim, Here's about the best picture I can come up with. It's hard to see with just a picture, but it clearly is a 6 restamped over a 2. To the right of that you can see the remains of a dash something that was ground off. I think this was a case of either a miss stamp or a left over 32 frame restamped. Just an oddity, and I have no doubt it was done at Smith & Wesson vs later...



Here's what it looks like with the 2 drawn in.

Hello! I have a minty 15-4 Masterpiece SN K3994xx. Any idea of the year of making? Also I know you don't usually but is this generally worth $500, $1000 etc. Highest Regards and thanks.

I believe you are looking at a 1960 birthdate with that serial number. Value wise I would look at Gunbroker and see what they are going for there. It's usually a good indication and don't just look at asking, look or monitor a few to see what they eventually sell for. I'd say your looking more at the $500 end than the $1000.
