Default .38 S&W Special CTG Serial Number & General Questions Please

I am new to the forum and have limited knowledge of a weapon I own that was passed down to me. It is a Stainless Steel .38 S&W Special CTG 4" Barrel, Made in U.S.A., Marcas Registradas, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, MASS and the Serial Number on the bottom butt is 3K60260. Also listed on part of the bullet cylinder is 75799 With An "S" turned sideways and "38" stamped in the same location. Also on the frame (hidden until you open the cylinder) is the serial number again 3K60260 and Mod. 67. The weapon is used and needs cleaning, The grips are wood and appear to be Walnut. The sights seen to be special because the rear one looks to be adjustable with a screw in the left end as well as the right end. The screw on the right end is larger than the screw on the left end side. There is also a large screw on the top and in front of the sight mentioned. The front sight seems to be permanently fixed and not adjustable. Anyone who might be able to tell me about this pistol and any history of its production and maybe guess at its value would be greatly appreciated.

The S&W Model 67 is a stainless steel K-frame .38 Spl with adjustable sights. The rear sight is the standard S&W black adjustable sight. The tip screw is the elevation screw. The right side screw is the windage screw. The left side screw is actually the nut that secures the windage screw. The Serial number is the one with the "k" in it that appears under the crane and on the butt. I do not have access to the master list, but yours was probably made in the mid to late 70's (maybe early 80's). The 67 is a good serviceable revolver. The frame is the same as the .357 Mag Model 66, but do not attempt to load Magnum ammo in it. IMHO it is safe for a steady diet of +P ammo.

Word of advise---Do not attempt to remove the frame side plate (right side) unless you know what you are doing. It is not a difficult proposition, but you can bugger it up if you are inexperienced.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
