Also, does it need the gold box and what tools if I run across a set? Can you tell me approximately what year it was manufactured? Right now, I can't take pictures.

Any help will be appreciated.


S&W began phasing out the gold boxes in the mid to late 1950's but they were used until around 1965. Keep checking the sale areas on this forum and also gunbroker and gunsinternational.

I picked up a very nice gold box for my 1955 .38/44 Heavy duty from this forum last year.
