Hello from New Mexico. I'm new to the world of CCW so I've got lots of reading to do here before I make a complete fool of myself and start posting. After a 25 year layoff to do the family/career thing I decided to renew a couple of hobbies I've missed. Shooting and motorcycle touring. The bike is paid for and getting well used and the pistol collection is started. I currently have an older J-frame 38spcl serial number J-2XXX that my wife is partial too. I'm currently building a Sig P250 in 9mm and .40 as all the different sizes make it to the market. My range gun for now is a 6" stainless 686 serial number ADF6XXX. I'd like to find out a little more on the history on the two S&W's so if someone could steer me in the right direction to track down thos serial numbers I'd appreciate it.

Welcome to the forum.
The only help I can offer to research the guns is S&W's website:
Weapon History Request - Smith & Wesson
Looks like they charge $50 per gun, though. There members with informational books that might chime in, though.

Your J frame SN is incomplete, should have 2 more digits. Your 686 was made in 1983.
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.
