Default New guy from Utah

New guy to the forum. I own about a dozen guns, most of which belonged to my father. Several Winchester model 12's, a model 70 with peep sights, a few hand guns, and a model 12-2 S&W 38, and a S&W Model 1000 20ga shotgun (never fired).

I am trying to find information on the age of the 12-2, and read some posts that there is no S&W Serial # database. Here is the serial number, D766832 which is printed on the box. This gun was given to my father by an old friend. I assume it has been fired, but it has been stored for a very, very long time. Would appreciate it if someone could tell me when this gun was manufactured. It is a 6 shot.

Welcome from Wisconsin!

According to Wikipedia it seems the Model 12 Airweight was produced in 1957 & the 12-2 was the 1962 updated version with the front sight changed from 1/10" to 1/8".

The Air Force M13 version had an aluminum cylinder & a 2" barrel but was withdrawn from service after many failures.
