Default S&W Model 66-2 3" Serial Number Info

I have a 1985 Model 66-2 3" SR AFZ4xxx Special Order#5120. Is this revolver part of the special production of 3" barrel for Ashland Arms? Thanks.

It is within the serial prefix range for the 3" model 66-2 range. The Special Order code indicates it was ready to ship on the 120th day of 1985, or April 30.

It sounds as though you have the original box, or at least the label? If not, the only way to be certain it is original is a letter of authenticity.

The majority of these went to Ashland but I think they have been documented as going to other distributors or dealers.
