well, looks like it came out of early 73' the production of serial numbers started with j100000 in 73', and ended with j250000 in 74'. should have the smaller barrel, s&w didn't produce the heavy barrel until 75'...... hope this helps.

yes apologies, Mr. Diamondback68 is correct I was looking at the wrong info, as usual. 69'-70 numbers started with J1, ending in J99999.
