Hello folks, I have another S&W that I just bought and don't know much about it. I have read several articles on these revolvers but nothing is telling me when these things was made. I sure wish S&W would put something on the internet with this information. What I have is a S&W moder 18 with a -7. It is in pretty good shape, haven't fired it yet. I would appreciate any help I could get with the manufacture date of this revolver. The serial number is CNH7093.
Thamks in advance for your help.

S&W doesn't publish anything about manufacturing dates on the Internet or anywhere else. You need to purchase a copy of the Standard Catalog of S&W by Supica and Hahas. It covers all the S&W manufactured guns and paraphernalia. Your gun was made in 2009.

Thank you sir for our prompt reply.
You got a nice one. Below is a Model 18 no dash and a Model 18-3. Hope yours shoots as good as these two do.

I just ordered a copy of the 4th --2016 edition of the book. I will try to not bother you again for information. Thank you, Pete

I have a gun that "looks" like an M18 (K-frame, 4" barrel, ramp front sight) but it isn't--it has finger groove grips, an underlug barrel and is stamped M17-6.

I always thought 4" K22's with a ramp front sight were M18's.

From the SCSW 4th Edition:

In 1990 S&W introduced this model in a full lug barrel variation as a double-action revolver built on the square butt K target frame with 3 screws. Features a 6-shot fluted cylinder with a nominal length of 1.62” with 4”, 6-inch or 8-3/8” full lug and ribbed barrel, blue finish only, wood combat style grips with S&W medallions, .375” semi or .500” full target hammer, .400” target or .312” smooth combat trigger, counterbored cylinder, pinned 1/8” Patridge front sight on ramp base with adjustable micrometer click rear sight. Early 17-6 variations are found without the full lug. 10 groove serrated backstrap and forestrap. The full lug barrel variation was Cataloged from 1990 to 1995.

Congrats on the new acquisition! Any pics of the 18? We'd sure like to see it.;)

Pete, I have the 3rd edition on my iPad. I really enjoy having it when I'm looking at new posts, pics of guns I'm not really up on. Looking at for sale ads is where having a copy
handy really shines. One glaring MISTAKE in a ad could cause you a bad bid. It was money
well spent. My K-22 stays at my house.
