Default S&W Serial Number

I have a new S&W 4566TSW that I was curious as to the date of manufacturer. The serial number is BDX1XX. Is there somewhere I can go to find this info? I've searched in Google and S&W's website to no avail.

I believe you can find the answer to your question in the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson 3rd Edition. I don't have mine handy to look it up but it has serial numbers by year of production in the back.

I looked it up in my 3rd ed. Catalog, but can't find a specific date for the BDX preface. Dates of manufacture were 2000-2004.

Nice pistol by the way.

Thanks for checking into that. Maybe I'll write S&W and see if they can provide some info. It's a sweet looking/shooting pistol and a lucky find since it was NIB. It had been in a warehouse along with probably thousands more similar to it. When I received it from my FFL dealer the blue box was dusty but inside was all new with papers, fired case, lock and three magazines.
