Welcome to the Forum,
The triple alpha/4 digit serial#'s started in 1980 with AAAXXXX for the Model 686. The Model 586 was introduced in 1981. Your serial# of AAL9XXX dates to the later part of 1982 according to the Standard Catalog of S&W (3rd Edition). Someone else will have to chime in for current values but if you search completed listings on the Auction Site "Gunbroker" for the Model 586, that should give you an idea of current prices. The presentation case that comes with the revolver doesn't add anything to its market value. Hope this helps.

Hello -

I need some help with information on a Model 10 with a 3" barrel and round butt that I'm looking at.

It's a 10-8 with a serial number of 9D300XX.

They say that it was made in 1970 but when I check the book it looks more like late 70's with that serial number range and a 10-8.

It's a nice revolver so....I'm just trying to nail down the year it was shipped.
Any help is appreciated.

Been awhile since I've logged in here. I picked up a 686-3 with a 6 inch barrel today. What a wonderful sidearm. Any information on date of manufacture/shipment would be appreciated. BFJ98XX. And a photo just because....

The serial# dates to about 1978. The target hammer and target trigger could have been ordered. Do you have the original box? The box end label will indicate how the revolver was equipped.

Hi! Would anybody be able to ID this --

I have 649 (no dash) serial ALV419x. If anyone could help determine the approximate date of manufacture, I would appreciate it.

Thanks so much for your time and trouble.

First, thank you for your thread. I have a S&W Top break 38spl (Lemon Squeeze), SN- 105576. I'd appreciate learning the shipping date or any other date that will get me closer to the manufacturing date.

That one doesn't look a Smith & Wesson made revolver?
Can you post a couple more close up's? The right side of the frame, and the left side of the barrel?

Hey guys, just picked up a 6” 19-2, paid 450 for it. Lots of finish wear, but there is virtually no flame cutting in the top strap. Seller told me it was his father’s duty gun in the CHP. Serial is K6192XX. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Forum,
Only a S&W Historical letter will tell you when your revolver was manufactured/shipped.
The closest anyone else can get is an approximate shipping year. Your's would date to sometime in 1987.

Default bought a 686-3 today, so happy with it

Hello Everyone,

when visiting my local weapon store, i found myself a treat.

A used S&W 686-3 with 4" barrel and the nice looking wooden quare butt grip and i had to buy it.

I love it, it looks as it wasnt shot a lot, or at least cleaned by a maniac who did nothing else.

I would like to know a bit more of the history of my new treasure and i already saw it should be 1988-1993 in regards to manufacturing date.

Can anyone share a little more detailed info about a 686-3, BNP618X ( X is another number, i dont know if its a problem to share the full serial no)

Thanks in advance,

Cheers

Serial# prefix of AAP=1982

The "M" stamp refers to a 1987 recall by S&W on L frame revolvers for the no-dash and -1 guns. The recall was to fit a new hammer nose and firing pin bushing to deal with certain brands of ammo causing (potentially fatal) binding when fired. The "M" stamp means your revolver was fitted with the new parts.

Welcome to the Forum,
It's personal preference in regards to sharing the full serial#. I don't see a problem, but some do for personal security concerns.
I can confirm a 1993 shipping year for a revolver with a serial# prefix of BNP. For more detailed information I suggest purchasing the book "The Standard Catalog of S&W" 4th edition. Tons and tons of S&W information on everything they made. You can also search the Forums on this site, lots of good information as well.

Thank you for the welcome, and for the fast response.

i looked for the book already, but i found it to be rather expensive for only finding out the manufacturing date.

but if you say that there is more interesting information i may will go for it.

Thanks.
