Default S&W Briley 3566 Questions

Hello folks,

Looking for info on this Briley .356TSW that I recently acquired.

As seen in the pics, the frame has serial number BRI0110, but has B69 stamped on the underside of the slide, inside the frame dust cover, and pencil etched on the barrel. Any significance or explanation? Any other interesting info on this model that I should know about? I know that there were only about 100 of these, correct?

Thanks.

Nice pistol!

I don't have any knowledge on the 3566 I can share with you. I do know all the Performance Center pistols were hand fitted so all the major parts needed to stay together. The "B69" on your's was so the barrel, slide & frame could always be paired together, if they got separated. It's just coincidence that it's kind of similar to the SN#.

That is the first one I've seen with open sights on it. All the others have had the single side scope mount, frame mounted in the dust cover indentation in front of the slide release lever. I've got #25 and actually use it for Bullseye now with a light loaded 9mm round.
