S&W Military & Police Revolver year?
I just placed an M&P on layaway. I was trying to figure out the year. The serial number is C422XXX. From what I gathered they switched to calling them model 10's in 1957.
Does anyone know of a chart or something that shows what serial numbers are from what year. I think its 1959, but that would make it a model 10. Unless they overlapped or had a delay before enacting the change.
Anyhow, if anyone has an info on which year goes with which serial numbers would be great. Also, if they could differentiate between model 10 and M&P. Unfortunately I do not have the gun in my possession, so I cannot provide any more information off the firearm.
I didn't bother reading all the markings at the time. The gun was sound and priced like a model 10 so I didn't care much. Had to pay them before I would realize impulse buys are bad.
