    Wink Age of S & W revolvers

    Hello. I am new to the forum and love Smith and Wesson guns. I recently purchased two revolvers and need some help finding the age of them. One is a model 36, serial number 5J5599. It is a blued gun 38 cal. The other one is a 357 magnum in stainless steel model 66. I don't have the serial number with me now but can post later. Thanks for any help.

    Hi gibbo and welcome. The Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson ends with the 1J range in 1983. Someone with access to to collectors association database or a factory letter may happen along and help. The 66 ran from 1970-2004, the serial number and/or the change number (i.e. 66- 1 through 6) is needed to pin it down, post both.

    So where are the photos for us to drool over. You're just gointg to tease us with model and serial numbers.
    That's not playing fair! You show us yours and we'll show you ours!

    Correction

    After getting home and taking pictures of the model 66, it is actually a model 65-2. I will try to get some pics of the model 36 this week. Any ideas? Other pics in next reply.

    Gibbo, your model-65 is an easy to carry belt gun that has all the power your likely to need, its a candidate for the person who could only have one gun, Good Choice!
    . . .Ooops, welcome to the forum.
