  • S&W Model 60 serial# question?

    I have a hand me down Smith & Wesson model 60 .38 special and I can't make out the 1st digit of its serial number. It looks to me to be a lower case "r", but it also sort of looks like a "1" or even an upper case "P". Anyone familiar with these guns able to suggest what digit the serial number most likely starts with?

    S&W FAQ



    Where is the serial number located on my handgun?
    Revolvers - The official serial number is located on the bottom of the butt of the frame. Some revolvers also have the serial number located on the inside of the frame, in the yoke area.


    According to this, you can find the same number on the frame too.



    Request the history of your S&W handgun
    Prior to requesting the history of your handgun, first determine that you have an authentic Smith & Wesson handgun. If the barrel is not stamped Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Massachusetts or Smith & Wesson, Houlton, ME your handgun is not a Smith & Wesson. Many handguns are stamped with the caliber, i.e., .38 S&W. This indicates the caliber and does not necessarily mean that it is a Smith & Wesson manufactured handgun.

    Letter of Authenticity (See sample)

    If you desire an in-depth response we can provide a formal letter of authenticity. There is a fee of $50.00 to cover our research, administrative and postage costs.

    To order the history of your Smith & Wesson, print this form (requires Adobe Acrobat), fill it out and return it along with a photograph or sketch of your handgun and your check or money order.

    If you decide to obtain a history letter, please provide a complete description of the firearm that includes all markings, barrel length, finish, single or double action, exposed or concealed hammer and a photograph or outline sketch. If you do not know the exact caliber of the revolver please measure the length of the cylinder and include that with the description. This will aid in the identification of the handgun. If your revolver is marked with the Model Number it is not necessary to include an outline sketch or photograph.

        Mine starts with the letter "R" followed by 5 digits. Early 70's vintage.
