Default Info on a Model 67

Wondering if there is anything special about the revolver I acquired today and the date of manufacture. Assume it is a 95% gun and give me a price estimate. I am a newbie here. If this is not the way or place to ask educate me on the proper method and place. Thanks in advance.

Model 67 (stainless) no dash or number following the model number.
Serial # 5K2XXX
4 inch barrel
adjustable rear sight
38 Special
3 screws
pinned barrel
cylinder is not recessed

Sorry this was posted twice. I got in into the wrong area on my first try.

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Tennessean you have come to the right place if you have pictures on your phone if you click on the Go Advanced button you can upload pictures to your reply by clicking on the paperclip looking button. As to the value on your model 67 if in good condition maybe $500-600 as a guess.

Yes. It is a .38 Combat Masterpiece Stainless. Revolvers chambered for the .38 Special never had counterbored cylinders. In other words, pinned but not recessed.

I'm no expert, but I do have a model 67 no dash, so I know a little bit
about them. 67 is the stainless steel version of model 15. So it too, is
a Combat Masterpiece. Introduced in 1972. For the first 5 years of
production they would all be no dash. The first dash 1 was 1977.
Mine was quite scratched up and pitted when I got it, so I had a local
smith bead blast it. I like the finish. He also put the red insert in the
front sight, so I don't think that is standard. The model 67 came with
magna style stocks with S&W medallians. I prefer the Craig Spegel
designed Uncle Mike combat stocks shown.

Thanks. The issue is on my end. My laptop for some reason will not let me select a picture from my harddrive.

Your 67 may indeed be special if it has stainless steel sights, trigger and hammer. Only the early ones had that. It was likely made in 1972 which was the first year available. I have one just a little earlier that is LNIB with the manual and tool kit.

It does have stainless sights, trigger and hammer. At least they are not blued. They have a slightly duller finish than the rest of the gun. They look stainless to me. Do I have something special? Just how special? I have 4.5 Ben Franklins in it.

Mine looks like that except for the stocks. Thanks

tjay53,

If you just bought it you made a great purchase. I'm not sure what year to write but that was a good price well before this year's buying panic.

That assumes original finish and parts and little wear. If that does not describe it than it's not 95%. It left S&W with a finish that looked like it was done with fine sand paper. If it really does look bead blasted like crazyphil's then its value would be lower.

This is a minor point but they never had stainless hammers and triggers. In your 67 those parts are carbon steel with a very thin hard chrome plating. However, in 1972 the rear and front sights were all stainless steel. To make them more visible it was common to replace the rear blade with a blued one and add a plastic insert in the front ramp. That was practical but not what collectors want to see now.

I overstated when I said "just like". I should had said same model. Thanks for the info. My finish is as you describe the factory finish.

The 67 no dash is the most collectible Model 67 and $450 is a great price whether you are collecting, plinking or protecting your family. My wife stole mine years ago and keeps it in the nightstand in case she can't wake me up.

Then you are doing well. I carry one daily. The .38 special K frames are hard to beat IMO.
