    Gun serial number help

    Hello everyone,

    I am a very new gun owner. I have bought a used S&W 686 6" yesterday. The S/N is CTA8622. Can anyone tell me what year was this gun made please? I was not able to find any website for searching serial numbers...

    Pete

    Oct. 2004 and there isn't a web site for searching the serial numbers, you need to ask or buy the Stand Catalog of Smith & Wesson.

    Thanks alot for such a quick response! I bought the gun for $525, its in an excellent shape... comes with all the paperwork and it has an extended cylinder release button... Do you think it was a good deal?

    A fair price. You didn't leave any money on the table, and the seller didn't make a partial gift of the gun. If I needed a 686, I'd have taken that deal.

    I thought it was a decent deal, I was on the gunbroker.com for about a week before I made this purchase. Thanks for help DCW and Hunter. I am excited to be part of the gun owner community, and I got alot of things to learn ahead of me.

    I have a 25-5 serial number BAN6XXX. Any idea when it was made? The Standard Catalog I have does not go this far.
    Thanks, Dale
