    if you are trying to find the age of your father in law, i suggest that you cut him in half and count the rings

    OK, then cut the gun in half and count its rings.


    Failing that, phone S&W customer service.

    My Standard Catalog of S&W lists the following for the "C" serial number prefix.

    Models: 10, 11, 12, 45, Aircrewman and their pre-model variations: C1-C223998 1948-1951

    Customer Service may be able to narrow that down, but they may also tell you to send them $50 for the history letter.
