Thanks again for the quick response. Any idea what model this gun would be? I'm trying to get a value on it.

Open the cylinder and swing it out. Look at the frame where the barrel comes thru the frame. The model number will be inscribed there along with the dash number. The serial number might be there as well. Ignore any markings on the yoke (the thing the cylinder is attached to).

What is the model number and dash number?

Just picked up a 337-1 Target, CDPxxxx. I think these were only made from 99-02, but I'm curious if the book is more specific.


Thanks!

S&W doesn't often disclose how many of a particular model they make. Probably because they don't like giving that info to their competitors. If I had to guess I'd say they made somewhere between 1,000 and 3,000. Which is not very many.

So this is likely a product of the first year model run?

Many tanks.

Mostly likely in late 1984.

If you would like a more detailed discussion on your guns, start a new thread in the main forum, post pictures and ask your questions. Perhaps a hundred members will see it there. This thread is for dates only and is routinely looked at by only 3 or 4 people.

Default Build date for 686

I have a 686-6 plus with 2.5 inch barrel. My serial number is CJH7078. Could I get the date it was built?

July - August of 2005.

Product code for the most common standard 7-shot production gun was 164192.
