Gentlemen, I have one that does not seem to show up like it should. It is a 4 screw N frame marked "MADE IN U.S.A." on the right side below the barrel boss, S&W logo on the left below the Cyl Release, with a serial on the butt of 1902XX and a 23947 visible when the crane is open, no model indication. The butt is drilled for a lanyard ring. It is a frame (one of 5) I bought years ago and I have made it a shooter.

.45 Hand Ejector Model of 1917. 25000 of them falling within the serial number range of 181983 to 207043 were shipped to Brazil in 1938 with many of them imported back to the U.S. in 1990.

Okay, so I have a 357 magnum it says it's at 65-3 but it has a 4 inch barrel on it. So would that make it 65 4? Or what? It was handed down to me so just trying to get some information. Thanks

The dash number refers to engineering changes, not barrel lengths.
In the case of the model 65 the -3 was the elimination of the pinned barrel and counterbored chambers.
The 65-3 ran from 1982 to 1988.

A 629 1 is a -1. The serial number dates it to mid 1980's which would also make it a -1. A no dash would have a pinned barrel and/or recessed chambers and a "N" prefix serial number.
Value for gun alone in excellent condition would be in the $600 and up range depending on location and barrel length.

help identify gun

This was a gun my father inherited and then I inherited. It is a Smith and Wesson with #'s on the butt and bottom of barrel B5209XX. The crane area has markings 73215. The caliber listed on the side is 38 special and has a 6" barrel.

Looking for info on its age, since I am in California, and is this a desirable or collectable gun or just a gun to use.

I have several newer 38 specials that he used for competition that I now use to shoot regularly, so this is just an extra to me and holds no sentimental value.

It is what I would say is average shape. Value?

Thanks

I'm assuming the number on the butt is 5209xx and does not have a prefix and that it is a 6 shot.
That said, it would be a .38 Military & Police made in the late 1920's.
S&W made over a million of them so value is not high unless in very high condition or if it is a target model (adjustable sights). Figure about $400 or so.

I just picked up a 686-5 Plus, serial CDP6xxx. I think it would be mid 90's.

Thanks!
