    You're in the right area Nick and yes that is a Model 37, a nice one! I don't know what those cylinder stampings indicate, one of the more experienced members might. Remember that this is an alloy frame revolver and not suited for shooting hot .38 Special loads such as +P ammo. If you can supply the serial number that is stamped on the butt of the gun we can give you a rough idea when it shipped from the factory.

    Good find. I carry a 37, or 38 every day. Each to his own but I load with 148gr wadcutter ammo. Nice cookie cutter hole, good weight, not much recoil, and it won't beat the frame to death.

    Looking at the book I'd say 1986 or 1987 on the shipping date, but these newer markings are harder to figure out. As for +P ammo, these are cartridges loaded that will produce more internal pressures and bullet velocities, but the pressures can be dangerous with gun frames that aren't designed to withstand the pressure. In your case you can buy regular .38 Special ammo that is safe in your gun, but if you see anything marked +P or +P+, don't use it.

    The book I'm referring to is; the 3rd edition of the "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson". There are older editions as well, but the 3rd is most current and you should be able to find it in from most bookstores and Goggle.com. Search for it on the internet, it's a great resource for a fan and owner of Smith & Wessons.
