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 "

Amanda106 and firebug085: At the top of every subsection under Smith and Wesson Revolvers on the home page is a section is a sticky entitled "To IDENTIFY Your Gun." This will explain the information we need to help you with your questions. Pictures are always of great value in the process. Also, you should start your own thread in the appropriate subforum with a title like Help with Grandpa's old Revolver, or "Mfg date of Model 60"

Oh, welcome to the forum. It's a great place with very knowledgable participants.

firebug085, The serial number range that contains your model 60 is 1974 to 1977: R100000 to R190000. I can extrapolate to guess that yours was late 1974 to early 1975, but that's a WAG. Others may have better information.
