Serial Number lookup

I have had a S&W passed down to me from my wife's grandfather. The serial number from the best I can tell is 222992. Any help on age of this pistol? Thanks.

Need more information (caliber, finish, type[break top, hand eject, ect.] or some pictures. S&W can have the same number on several different models and different dates of manufacture.

Your 520 is one of the later mfg. with only 147 left on the run.

Guy's there's a thread stickied at the top of this forum for that very purpose.
