I have a 617-1 with a 4" barrel, serial # BSY-2720. Any info would be most helpful since I bought it from a friend who has since passed on 10 years ago or so. It has been a "safe queen" for me until recently.

The product code for the 4-inch M617 was 100564. That's a searchable term.

By 1995 the rubber Hogue grips were standard factory issue.

Gentlemen,
I just got into a S&W M18-4. I intend to purchase the book next month in Tulsa. However, until then could someone give me a time period for this? The serial # is 78K2XXX. (An '80's gun?) Thank you!

Thanks for the help. Here is a picture with the original box and papers, which I didn't know my friend had stuffed behind the foam rubber!

On the case label there's a 4-digit number, the Spec. Ord. Number.

The s/n prefix BBU makes sense. Assuming that's it, your Model 60 shipped in......
January - February 1989.
The s//n is inscribed very clearly on the bottom of the grip frame. You may have to remove the stocks to see it. If the prefix is not BBU, let me know.

Default K-22 masterclass?

I have a k-22 masterpiece that I believe is a 1952 built.
The serial number is k 147507. But I was wondering if you could tell me if its a model one or what not. I know the grips aren't the original. But I want to know exactly what it is.

Give or take a month or so. You can call Lew Horton. They will tell you if it theirs, and send you a free history letter on their letterhead.

It's a standard production Smith, and LH is just the distributor. LH doesn't open up the guns and sprinkle any foo-foo dust in them.

Of course, you always pay less if you can, but that is not an unreasonable price range for that gun in excellent condition.

You have a K-22 Masterpiece. You are correct with the approximate shipping year (1952). Collectors call your revolver a "pre model 17" because Smith & Wesson started using Model #s in about 1957 and post 1957 versions of yours was called the Model 17.
