All from the boxes:

CYA 04/24/15 Model 686-6 Plus 4" bbl
CZA 12/08/15 Model 438
HMK 03/04/16 M&P9 Shield Std.
UDT 01/18/16 S&W22 Victory Std.

Regret they're all so recent, but maybe this helps someone who does not have the box or fired case. To give my tiny collection a bit of historical credibility, I also have a Military and Police .38 Special from the early 1940s...a real "Victory" model...,which I'll post on the Victory database as soon as I reduce the size of the pictures.

When I called S&W they said this 629-3 was a "Lew Horton Special 30" with SKU 103601 made in 1997. Here's what the letter says:



I called Northern Security Inc. this morning and they confirmed it was a special order for the Alaska State Troopers. A trooper named Jeff Hall had won a high profile shooting competition and S&W was going to give him a gun. The gun they offered was not what he wanted. He wanted a Mountain Gun. They told him they could not make just one, but would make a small batch for Alaska State Troopers to buy individually. Hence the AST prefix.

I found the owner of AST0002. Here is his box label. Hopefully, this helps explain the duplicate SKU with a PC gun. Link to my original post with more pics: 629-3, Alaska State Troopers, Letter Received, 15 made

Early 640s began with 'CEN' and are also engraved on the frame "TESTED FOR +P+"

Too late for the book but may add to general knowledge:

CWP = 10/10/2014 on fired case envelope, ie: October 10, 2014, for a 27-9, N frame.

Don't know if it is worth mentioning, but since acquiring Thompson/Center these products
also use the S&W serial numbers and will further complicate the issue.
I have an Encore Pro-Hunter purchased in Oct. 2013 that is MAE 0244.
This came from a custom barrel maker and I have no factory box etc.
Frame says "MFG BY S&W" on it.
