    newcomer from Oregon

    I joined the group for information and fellowship with folks who share like interests and a common bond. As a NRA life member since 1972, and a Vietnam veteran, I obviously cherish our 2nd amendment rights, and all the rights endowed by our creator and guaranteed by our constitution. being new to gun forums, I don't know if I should post questions on this forum or seek another thread, anyway, if I goof, I'm sure someone will let me know.
    So, I have questions regarding a S&W Mod. 10. the inscription on the left side of the bbl is, 38 S&W Special $ U.S. service ctgs., bbl length is 5" and is pinned at the receiver, and has a latch for the cylinder pin. bbl top has appropriate Pat. dates beginning Apr 9 89 to Dec 17 01. right side of the frame reveals 4 screws, and none on the trigger guard. the S&W logo is on the right side of the frame. the grips are birds head hard rubber. serial # on the bottom of the grip frame is 37xxx. the piece shows prominent holster wear to the blue finish and honest use. the trigger and hammer case hardening however are flawless, as is the bore.

    First welcome from Arizona. Now I have a couple of questions: is there a letter by the serial # (on the bottom of the grip frame) like S, C or D? By "the grips are birds head hard rubber" I presume you mean a round butt model since the Model 10 didn't come w/ birds head grips?

    Hi Injunbro, thanks for the reply. no letters with the ser #. and yes I did mean round butt, as birds head grips come to a point at the trigger guard side of the grip frame.

    Hi K22, no, the only numbers in that area are what I found out are assembly numbers. these are 10707 on the frame with the letter B stamped below. and the same corresponding number is on the crane in the opposing location minus the B.
