Dating a sw revolver by serial number

20-Oct-2020 00:23

V1 to approximately V39,999 were predominately .38 S&W Caliber (I have observed revolvers in the 1-40000 range in .38 special caliber). Below you will find some of the common stamps with links to examples. Revolvers that have the "S" marking on the right side plate as well as before the serial number on the butt have the improved hammer block installed. Post the V400,000 serial number range they are located on the underside of the barrel, back of the cylinder and left side plate.

Serial numbers are located on Inside right grip, frame butt, Cylinder, extractor star, and bottom of barrel. Grips: Checkered walnut with medallion until early 1942, post February of 1942 they are smooth American Walnut with out medallions. Navy orders you will find no acceptance marks on the original two contracts they placed. The acceptance mark of Ordnance officer Waldemar Bromberg is located on the butt (to about serial number V145000). B.) is usually found an ordnance bomb and proof mark. D is found on the left top strap; The property mark was shortened to "U. If the "S" in the serial number on the butt appears to be machine applied this would indicate it was produced with improved hammer block, and that it was not added later or it would have been hand stamped. The later appear to be Army Supply Program contract revolvers.

I've been told the previous owner was an elderly gentleman that, for medical reasons, had to move into a healthcare facility and couldn't take the gun with him. As to finding DOM-Date of Manufacture- have you tried just calling Smith and Wesson directly ?? At a recent trip to the 2003 Louisville gun show I noticed prices on Victory revolvers had increased noticeably. armed forces have always been under appreciated by collectors, the good news is that makes them relatively inexpensive to acquire, but this is changing.see if i can find out how to date one of these I would start with a small token of my affection... I may have to finally get around to buying that smith book that gives the dates.
