    I have its twin; doubt it's ever been fired, and the trigger will give you a hernia in any case. Whatever spasm of 'progressiveness' afflicted S&W way back then, it makes the gun really hard to shoot.
    Serial # on mine is 158xx, which is on the cylinder and the butt. They don't command much money regardless of condition, but they are a really neat old piece. How tight is your lockup?

    It feels a little loose but I heard they were like mine from being new, the triggers are a little heavy. this one is dated from 1893 to 1898

    had3, mine has essentially zero slop in the lockup, and the machine work/finish is just wonderful. Like I said, doubtful that it was ever fired; there are no marks on the recoil shield nor any burn marks on the cylinder face. It feels like a 'protection' gun that somebody bought early in the last century, loaded, and tossed in the sock drawer against something going bump in the night.
    I've other things to shoot, so I'm not going to bother shooting it, but it is neat to have. BTW, do I recall that they will chamber different calibers, including .380?
    Where did you find your 'born-on' dates for your gun?
    Thnx,
    Moon

    I got them out of the standard catalog of S&W, if you give me the 1st for digits of your serial # I can look it up for you.

    Had3, first four are 1585. I think that reference is around here somewhere, but I can't find it at the moment.

    Halfmoon is your gun a 5 or 6 digit serial numbered gun, and is it a .38 caliber ?

    had3, my apologies, I haven't been back to this thread.
    My pistol is .38 S&W, and the serial number has five digits.
    Thanks,
    Moon
