Best bet is to google Smith & Wesson. Give them the serial number over the phone. They give it to you right then and there. Most gun manufacturers do.

SIG 1911 XO - Custom SA Mil-Spec 1911 - Colt Golf Cup Trophy 1911 - Colt Series 70 1911 - SIG P226 e2 - BHP Stainless - BHP Blue - W. PPQ - Glock 17,34,19,21,22 - S&W M19-4 - Hk USP 40

The "book" is not at all clear on semi-autos (revolvers, yes). I don't have a copy....but I checked one closely in a local bookstore about a week ago (concerning a 3rd gen. Smith semi-auto I have)....and came up short. The book does show general years of production for all of the semi-auto models, but very little about specific serial # range/ production dates. The 5906 may be an exception on this, I don't know, but I wouldn't hold my breath....

I would just contact S&W directly. That is what I did.

the standard catalog lists the numbers THA1016 through TVC7046 were made in 1991.
