      S&W Victory .38 S&W Serial # question

      I have acquired a S&W Victory model revolver chambered for .38 S&W. Serial # is V 296488. Does anyone know of a place to look for the date of manufacture with that info? I have heard that Jim Supica's "The Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson" has this info but do not have this reference at this time.

      Thank you!

      This is the entry for the only V prefix serial numbers in the book.

      1942-1945 V1-V811119


      You can also write to S&W and they will tell you what they know about it, but it is expensive ($50) for the amount of info they give you.

      Thank you Bruce. Using mathematical deduction then, I would estimate manufacture date about June 1943.
