    Smith and Wesson 13-3

    Picked up a new to me Smith and Wesson 13-3 several months ago. Was wondering if anyone could provide a reference source for an approx date of manufacture. Serial number AVF66XX. I've also enclosed a poor quality cell phone picture for your viewing pleasure. Bad picture is better than no picture.

    From my 3rd Gen Std Cataloge of S&W book it looks like 1987.

    Great K-frame find. I love shooting my K-frames and will never pass up a good deal on one.

    In the late '80's, early '90's before transition to S&W 9 MM, Autos, our department issued the S&W, 3" K-Frame revolver in stainless steel version (can't remember the designation) to Sergeants and Lieutenants. I carried one for 3 - 4 years and really thought it was a great gun. Not all that heavy, the shorter barrel was easier to conceal (plainclothes duty) and it was pretty accurate overall. I wish I had one today.
