Default S&W Performance Center 66-4

Acquired a very nice, unfired, S&W Performance Center, model 66-4 today. The revolver is equiped with a 3" barrel, round butt, white grips w/S&W emblem.
Firing pin is on the hammer, and no lock!
Can anyone help with the DOB?
Product code #170090, Serial #LHN000x.
Thanks

SmithNut,
WOW, that was a quick response! Thanks for the information.
Any idea what year these "Super K's" were manufactured?
Your Super K looks great, I love those grips. Are the grips original to the revolver?
Thanks again

Super K's were made in 1997 With a suggested retail of $834. The product code was 170090 and yes those look like the original grips.

Default grips.....

whitecoyote,
The grips on your gun (the white polymer grips) are original to this model, mine came with the same type. I'm just a fan of Craig Spegel grips, so all my guns get them......

I called the factory for you, the barrel part number is 24359, but unfortunately they have none in stock. Bummer, that would make a neat project......

Smile The Super K is a beautiful gun!

I used to own s/n LHN0002 for awhile:


Whitecoyote, I noticed yours has a different front sight. Looks a lot nicer (and I'll bet it shoots a lot nicer!) than the original plain black ramp. Congrats on the great find!

DC7,
You are not going to believe this, but LHN0002 is the gun I now own. You are looking at your old Super K!
What a small world.
I'll have to see if I can track down that front sight.

Smile I had a feeling that might be my old gun!

That's a great revolver--you're going to love it!

I really like the look of that gold bead front sight, too.

Congrats on both of those. They look handy and I bet the triggers are sweet. Anyone know what "upgrades" the PC did, compared to the standard production version (cylinder stop, expected accuracy, whatever) ?

Congrats on a really cool 66!
