Does anyone have an idea for a date of manufacture for serial # R152XXX. Purchased in March of '76 by Fraternal Order of Police for my grandfather. I have the receipt. It was my grandfather's service revolver (Highway Patrol until his passing in 1995.) Just recieved it through my grandmother's will.
1974-1977 R100000-R190000

Would love to see a pic.

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! My guess would be March 1976. ;) Our SN tables are not precise enough to nail down a year, much less a month. The receipt is more accurate than anyone except the S&W Historian can provide. Please keep the receipt and any other data you have on your grandfather with the gun. That's known as "provenance" and adds value if you ever decide to sell it. If you never sell it but pass it on to your children, it heirloom history and it's invaluable.
