I have a very late 5" M&P with a serial number just over the time when they went to the new short action and the 4 line address. Mine has the one liner and the long action. Getting closer to the new "C" series, it is # S- 991735. This goes to show, again, none of their guns were shipped or numbered in order.
This revolver also came in its original, numbered, gold box. Big Larry

I really like the looks of the gun with the 5" tapered barrel. Don't see that length too often except on the British Service Revolvers. The stocks have a nice rich color and seem to be in great shape. All in all a superb package

That is a beauty. The closest I can get to yours is S9440xx. It is a 6" barreled one. Original stocks but some fool sanded them smooth.

it shipped 11/47.

I think the 5" barrel length was more popular during the pre WWII years. Seems like most of the early M&Ps I see are 5" guns., both the 38 and 32-20 versions.

Commonly called "transitional" models. I have a couple of .44 specials that way that need pictures taken of them.

Nice example. If I had to choose a revolver with a longer barrel the 5" would be my pick. The barrel length on this particular revolver really balances out how the firearm looks. Thanks for sharing the pic.😎

I will letter mine soon. I have slowed down on my letters at a cost of $100. Thanks for the info. I wonder if anyone on this forum has a higher number than mine? Maybe it would have a 4 line address and short throw action. Thanks, Big Larry

I no longer do the Blue Forum. Made a small error and they made a big deal out of it. Thanks, Big Larry
