Could you please fill me in on any info like date of manufacture, and value (looks in real good shape). It seems that I'm starting to get addicted to these S&W revolvers.
Thanks in advance.
Is it a fixed sighted revolver ?
if so that one was called an M&P or Pre-10
. If is has Target sights and a 6" Barrel it is called a K-38 Target Masterpiece.
If is has a 4" Barrel with adjustable sights it will be a Combat Masterpiece or Pre-15
. I need to know more about the gun model to tell you it's worth, but it would fall into this range and year 1954-K-210096--K--231255
. I hope this helps, Hammerdown
