    its a 1967 gun.. in '68 they went to the D prefix..

    looks like its got some holster/high edge wear, you have to be the judge of the blueing condition..

    its a square butt not a round, so expect to pay 400 (i'd offer less, of course) around here.. the round butts are more desirable - imho.. I would also want to know if those grips were sn matched?

    Gently take off the grips and see if the number on the back of the grips match the serial number of the gun. That would prove they are factory original to the gun.

    And welcome to the forum.

    sorry I wasn't clear - as forester said, until the '80s or so, s&w stamped the gun serial numbers on the inside of one of the grips.. if the grips match, one should have 907567 stamped inside. no big deal, but its nice to have the orig grips, and makes it a little more desirable to an enthusiast .. same with a sn matching box..

    check it over carefully. try the single action for all six chambers, check the timing- cock slowly and when the hammer is at full cock see if the cylinder can be turned. try the gun in double action six times. there is most likely some play in the cylinder should be very little. check the barrel and cylinder gap and make sure the cylinder can not touch the back of the barrel. good luck

    hello and welcome to the forum from PA. that is an excellent carry gun and a real work horse, hard to get one sturdier or more reliable, really good choice.
