I have a beautiful 17.4 S&W with 8 3/8" barrell and would like to know more about it. It is in excellent shape. I purchased it back in early 1981 when it was almost brand new. I probably have shot a couple of boxes through it since then. I put it away a long time ago. If someone can tell me about it, I sure would appreciate it. The stamped info. is as follows: 83K2980. Below that is MOD 17-4 and below that is B4 and finally 82566. What does all the numbers mean? I know what MOD 17.4 means. If anyone can estimate the value of it, I would be most appreciative. I am interested in selling it or do some trading. I also have the matching S&W MOD 57 with 8 3/8 inch barrell, which I purchased new in 1982. It too is is excellent condition.
