i just had a guy drop off a 617-4 round butt 10 shot 4 inch gun.
and i am really puzzled. on the right side of barrel is roll stamped in big letters and numbers smith and wesson
on the frame below cylinder is stamped cfa 1314
inside the the crane on the frame is the serial number cfa 1314
when i took the gips off, there is no serial number on the botton of the grip frame.
on the side of the frame is factory stamped cfa 1314. my question is was this a special run of 617 guns. i will have some pics up later.
any advice or help is appreciated.
