If you had the original factory box I could nail it down more precisely.

I've seen the AWY prefix used on commemorative guns. Are there any special markings on your M67-1? If not, it probably just a standard production K-frame.

Thank you.
You have too many digits if that's the serial#. It's also missing the letter K which if the revolver is a Model 19-2, the K will be in front of the 6 digit #, and is part of the serial#. The official serial# is located on the bottom of the grip frame and you may have to remove the grips to see it.

Welcome to the Forum,
Spend a couple of minutes reading this sticky. Sounds like you have a mid 50's era Chiefs Special Airweight.
If the number you posted is the serial# taken from the bottom of the grip frame, it dates to about 1956.

Based on s/n extrapolation it likely left the factory in......
August - October 2011.
If you have the box I would like you to check for two numbers.

The product code (SKU) a 6-digit number beginning with "1".

Spec. Ord. number a 4-digit number also beginning with "1". (Possibly a 2 or 3).

Pre 1970 S&W Auto serial#s are difficult to track. S&W did not ship firearms in serial# order. Serial#s were shared with all models. By 1970 they had reached #115001. If I was to make an educated guess I would say #84936 dates to about 1968.

Default S&W 586 .357

Picked this up about 13/14 years back, paid $250 for it then. From what I was told by the guy I bought it from, it belonged to his brother, and had only been used 2-3 times.

Model 586, 6in barrel, wood grips (appear to be factory) with a blued finish. AEA5904 is the number I see when I open the cylinder and look at the yoke.

Looking for a date of manufacture if anyone can provide it, that would be great! Maybe a possible value too (no plans on selling it, just curious what it's worth or what it sold for originally - hopefully my photos uploaded)

Thanks!

Would of left the factory in.....

March - August 1984.

They sold for $350 (plus/minus) when new. S&W doesn't sell direct to consumers. Distributors and local gun shops set prices.

Today that gun would likely trade hands in the $450 to $650 range. Condition, location, and the presence of a factory box and paperwork all effect price.

Your gun has the factory Patridge front sight, which is a less common variation.

Would of most likely left the factory in.....

July - October of 1988.

There were several product codes used for standard 4-inch guns, depending on minor details, 100705 was a common one.

Welcome to the Forum,
Your post brought a smile to my face. Hopefully we can nail down exactly what snobby you have
Seriously,
Please read the attached link and provide some more detailed information. Many models shared serial# ranges so we have to identify what you have first. Make sure you are reading the serial# off the bottom of the grip frame. You may or may not have to remove the grips to see the serial#-see the pic's in the link. If you some pic's of the subject revolver please post them.

To IDENTIFY your Gun >

It's probably a product code 103610, which was in production at that time. Post pictures in the main revolver forum if you want a discussion. This is the "when was it made" thread.

The catalog name for this revolver was the Combat Magnum Stainless. It would be referred to as a "dash three", as in Model 66-3.

Prices can be all over the place depending on details. Like barrel length, box, papers, being Performance Center made (it would be marked as such), a hundred things. Guessing without pictures.

$600 would be an excellent price on a standard production 3-inch gun (the least common). About right, to high, for a 6-inch gun. Add $100 for a PC gun.

There were several product codes used for standard 4-inch guns, depending on minor details, 100705 was a common one.
Thank you very much, sir!

Default Need help IDing my pistol

Hello there, I am obviously new to the forums. I did as much solo research as I could before I headed over here for help identifying a pistol my father passed down to me. Can anyone tell me, roughly, the year my pistol was made based off the below information? (or any other relevant information)

S&W .357 Magnum
Model 19-5
Serial no. AAS864x
4" barrel
2 visible screws

Default New to group....wondering about ship date on a 460

Serial number is DDN9732. I know it is a pretty new one, but just wondering if it was a NOS one that had been on shelf for a while or not....

Will have another one to check here in a few days too.

Thanks in advance!

Jason

Welcome to the Forum,
If you have the box, there will more than likely be a date code on the end label that will look like this 170418 (todays date).

The catalog name was the Combat Magnum. It was a popular model with a lot of variations based on small details (sights, trigger, hammer, grips, etc.).

Your gun looks to have a "trigger shoe" which is an aftermarket item. It can be an aid in target shooting, but due to safety concerns is not ideal on a carry gun.

If you'd like a detailed discussion of your M19-5 you should start a new thread and post many pictures in the main forum. Hundreds of members look at that everyday. This thread is primarily for ship dates, and is looked at by a small handful of members.

Probably on, or around, the 16th. If you have the box the date code would would appear like: 121616.

S&W's new 6-digit date code use a Month-Day-Year format. So today's date (April 19, 2017) would appear as 041917.

Thanks to those that responded...I don't have the box in front of me now...but will double check tonight and see if that matches up.

When I get the other one that hopefully will arrive end of week or first of next, I will post that S/N as well...I won't have the box for it though...so will rely on what info you all can provide for approx date on that one.

Thanks again!
