Oh, think I may have started a thread when I didn't need to.
586-4 6" barrel
Serial number CAA6854
Would that be 1993?

Would someone please look up my serial numbers for dates and any accompanying info?
27-3 .357 6" blued w/wooden grip, adj rear sights N9314**

66-2 .357 3" silver w/ wooden grip adj rear sights AFK91**

Both have numbers stamped on the chamber side that I don't know what they mean.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Zac

BTW, what is the concern about posting the complete SN?

Welcome to the Forum,
"BTW, what is the concern about posting the complete SN?"
It's mostly internet based fright on posting a serial# that someone else can say was their firearm and was stolen. If the gun is properly registered in your name, you have no real worries IMHO.

Model 66-2 (it's stainless steel-not silver)= 1984
Model 27-3 = 1983

The numbers stamped on the frame and yoke are internal factory control numbers and mean nothing once the firearm leaves the factory. The only stamped number on the frame that means anything is the serial#.

Hi, all. I posted an earlier thread titled "Collectability of Model 15-4" in which I stated a thought the serial number on this gun corresponded to a 1982 ship date, but I wasn't sure. The serial number is 265KXXX. Can someone please verify if this is correct? Below are pictures of the gun, serial number, and box label.

Thanks in advance.

Default 617-1

Hi -
I'm about to procure an excellent 617-1 with a lovely wooden grip. So far I only know that the serial no. is BRE3838. The first owner passed away, and now his daughter is passing it on after 10 years. She doesn't have any papers indicating the manufacturing date or year, so therefore I proceed to ask here. I am sorry to be a bother, but I cannot find anywhere on the internet where I am able to find out for myself.

Very grateful for any help in this matter!
