I picked one up in a trade last week.

The pistol has never been a carry or been fired allot.

Wood grips are perfect and even had a unopened factory cleaning kit in the box.

How can I tell the year it was made?

Are any night sights for the rear adjustable made?

My only gripe with this gun is its to nice to carry.

If you post the serial number we can tell you the year of manufacture from that information.

I had a 639 in that condition, too pretty to use/fire. Besides, I had an old no dash 39 to shoot. It became a safe queen, so I traded it off for a 3" 625-3 (one of my better trades I must say!).

One way to tell vintage is by the trigger guard. The first 639s had a rounded trigger guard, up till about 1984 I believe. After that, they all had the squared off trigger guards like the 2nd generation S&W autos with 4 digit model #s (eg: 6906, 4506, etc). Of course, posting the serial # will enable us to tell you the exact year of manufacture.

By the way: welcome to the forum!
