    Smith & Wesson serial numbers

    The model 19-6 I have, has me curious of its age. It is deeply blued and the only wear I can spot , is the ring around the cylinder for rotation. The front sight has no red ramp. I believe it to be early 60's vintage. I could be wrong.
    I don't want to wait weeks to hear back from Smith'. The exact date is not that important to me. A general date is fine.
    If anyone wants to take a stab at it, the serial number is #BKC3318.

    Thank you. Artz

    Your Model 19-6 was made in 1991.

    S&W began using 4 digit SNs with a 3-letter prefix between 1980 and 1983.

    1960s SNs began with a "K" with a single digit number prefix. (As in 2K555XXX, for example).


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
