    SW Model 64

    I have inherited a SW Model 64 38 Spl stainless steel revolver with a serial number 54268. Can someone lead me to more information about the gun.

    I don't believe that is the serial number. The Model 64 is built on the stainless steel K service frame. It is a stainless steel version of the Model 10. Model 64's were first introduced in 1970. It should have a "K" somewhere in the serial number or the serial number will begin with a three letter alpha character.

    I don't own a Model 64 so I can't show you a photo of one that includes what the entire revolver looks like.

    The correct serial # is found on the butt, you'll have to remove the grips to see it.

    Early ser numbers will have a "D" somewhere in it or later gun ser nos will have three letters followed by 4 numbers

    You might be able to see the serial number through that small opening in the bottom of the grip.

    That's a part number not the serial number. Serial numbers are on the butt, as already stated, but never on the crane.

    If it is a dash 3, they were made until 84-85. The pin was deleted some time in 81 and the one the OP has doesn't have a pinned barrel, so it was produced between late 81 and 84-85, when they went to dash 4
