Default serial number lookup

I am considering buying a model 66-1. I know by model number it was made between 1977 and 1982. Serial number is 52K5322. Would like to know exact year. Thanks, Jesse

Default serial number lookup

Thanks for your quick reply. This is an excellent condition revolver and the price is right. I have been researching revolvers online for a couple of months. Was considering buying a Taurus or Ruger, but this one just fell in my lap. I mentioned to a friend at church that I was looking for a .357 and he said he had just gotten this one in trade for services rendered. He is asking $450 and from what I've seen on the internet this is an excellent price for this revolver.

Welcome! It likely shipped in 1962 or '63. The barrel and cylinder are steel and the frame is anodized aluminum alloy; the latter finish is not as durable as standard bluing so care with abrasion (like holstering) should be taken. Hope this is helpful.

I have also been looking for m66's the past 6 months, primarily on GB. I have been looking for a piece in the 90-95% range and first found a nice M66-3 4" for $500. and ended up selling it after I found a m66 no dash 4" for $480. I found both on GB so the prices don't include the usual $50-$60 associated cost which you won't have. So bottom line, you have a GREAT DEAL! On top of that one of the smoothest double action .357's out there. Here are the two I mentioned , the second being the m66 no dash all cleaned, polished and ready to shoot." BUY IT NOW "
