    No real help from me but an idea on where you could go:

    Weapon History Request - Smith & Wesson

    Maybe one of the real wheelgun gurus can give you a better idea. Good luck!

    According to my S&W book, the 640 was introduced in 1990. Are those first three letters in your serial number BRI or BRL, the lower case make me wonder?

    Based on my 3rd Edition S&W book it is End of 1994 (BRF started in August) into 1995. Good find.
