More info/Identifying/Dating - S&W .38
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I came accross an old snub-nosed .38 Special recently and am trying to find out more about it. If anyone could tell me more, I would be very grateful.
The serial # is J518xxx. On the side of the barrel it reads "Airweight" and ".38 SPL. CTG." just below that. The metal parts have a glossy black finish. I have the original box with all of the bits of paper (warranty info, maintenance manual, etc) that came with it.
I'm trying to find a manufacture date and possible resale value (if any). Thanks for any help!
