    Just picked up a 686-4 for $400 #CAU 1203.
    Good deal I thought. Can anyone help me as far as manufacture date?

    I picked up a pristine 686-4 about 3 weeks ago (and an even more pristine 686-3 two days later). I can only give you a window based on the chronology in the fantastic Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson: The -4 started in 1993 and was supplanted by the -5 in 1997.
