    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?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

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