I have a stainless M65-5. I believe it is a police trade in.

Right over the model number a capital "U" is stamped. Does anybody know what the "U" means?

I asked a while back (maybe on the other forum) and nobody seemed to know.

This gun is up for a possible trade and I'm hoping the "U" means that it was carried "U"ndercover by J. Edger Hoover himself so that it is worth about a zillion dollars... :mrgreen:

I have owned at least a couple of S&Ws with the "U" marking. I contacted customer service and they said that indicated a used gun that may have been a salesman's sample, used in the armorer's school, LE test gun, etc. They said that such guns do meet factory specs,etc.

I agree, I have one, it looked new when I bought it.
