Default S&W .38 special

OK I traded my newly acquired beretta 92 in stainless for my grandpas old smithy
Now before some of you start bashing on how that deal sucked , I only had 300.00 in the 92 and I have a taurus 92 so close enough to the same gun for me . I was wondering if some of you could tell me about what year and such this ol girl may be , I remember it very well growing up so I know its at least 28 yrs old but here is the numbers . 47546 mod 10.5 with a hand engraved # of 754695 . The last number makes me kinda believe it was issued to some one @ one point but its located on the bottom of the drum well . if need be i will upload some pics . it came in a black two snap S . D MYREE holster

Mobile,

I do not think that the deal sucked at all. There is only one Grandpas Model 10 with a little history and possibly some sentimental effect also. And a ton of 92pistols. I still have all of my grandfathers weapons and will be passing them on to my grandsons. I believe C3 did a great job dating your pistol.
Enjoy it but I would not fire a lot of real hot defense rounds through it. Not that it would not shoot them well, just thinking about preserving it in the long run.

Not gonna bash you! I heart the Smith K Frames, and it sounds like you got a SWEETY! Remember....92's are nearly a dime a dozen. A classic Smith wheelgun is like a peach!

I found a few pounds of old hand loads most are ball or wad cutters that i have been shooting out of my security six for a while with no issues . I think ill take the wheel guns out this weekend with the exception of the spainish 32 , that one scares me and cost too much to shoot

The number 47546 does not match with the Model 10-5.

If the hand engraved number is the Serial Number, it should have a "K" prefix.

If it is a M10-5 with a S/N of K754,695 then it was produced in 1967. (The same year I went to boot camp.)

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

My S&W M19-3 IS the most accurate handgun I own! It makes me look good shooting her.
