The happiest day of my life was the June day in 1994 that I saw Illinois in my rear view mirror for the last time. :D

Kevin,
Your serial number puts production in 1950 according to "The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson". Should be a nice gun; I treasure my pre 17's highly.

Kevin,
That sounds like the number you see when you open the cylinder, and those would be assembler's numbers.
We need the number from the bottom of the butt; if it's got target stocks, you'll...

don k,
You can use whatever .22 LR ammo meets your needs; due to the counter-bored case heads, all K-22s since 1931 are rated for high velocity ammo.

The first K22 Outdoorsman was # 632132, and made in 1931. They are fine guns, as you've noticed.

luvtohunt,
The new alphanumeric serials are sorta confusing at some times, but it looks like your Model 17 was made in 1991 or 1992. A call to S&W might yield better results on that.
Sounds like a...

Bruce,
I'm amazed this thread is still around, but glad it is.
The book is a little weird on the transition date; it says the 17-5 was discontinued in '89 for the full lug 17-6, but a couple...

cznuB,
Yep, CTG really does mean Cartridge. S&W has been using that for years; my two 1913 M&Ps have it also.
That serial #, BDS9xxx looks like May of 1989.

Nope, one's not enough.This one is from 1949, and it's got the early post war tapered barrel; probably my #2 favorite.

Camster answered your date of birth question, so I'll give a little history and my personal opinions.

jackknife,
Smith & Wesson eliminated the 4th (upper) sideplate screw in 1955-56. The halfmoon sight went bye-bye around 1952. The barrel pin went much later,1981-82.

Tejano
Nice pix.
What's the brown gunk in the screw slots? Flitz? And how old is the .38; I can see it's a 3 screw with the heavier barrel profile.
