I think a while back someone mentioned they had a trick for easy installation.

Rounded, like any other Smith. Some cutdown barrels were not crowned, and remain with just a straight, square cut.
A non lugged Model 17 four incher has a heavier barrel than a Model 18.

Between the logo position, proper crown and front sight installation, it's easy enough to tell. Not so may out there, but they do exist.

I owned one of the later four inch full lug versions.

He said his bolt was mushroomed or distorted around the extractor. Could be a soft metal issue.
Sorry, I was fine with my 82B, but have a hate for 82C guns.
