    Have a Mod 10(38 Spec) with 9D65xxx and a Mod 19 (357)with K345xxx. Both have 4" brls. The 10 is a heavy Brl Round Butt and may be a bit unusual I have heard? My Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson is in the mail but not here yet, Thanx, Tom in Fl. USA

    Was interested in date of manufacture. The mod 10 has fixed sights and the 19 is adjustable. Thanx for the help, Tom in Fla. USA

    The 19 with a K prefix is likely pre '85 or so. That was about the time Smith changed the S/N sequence.

    You can tell a lot about your Smiths by the dash number. Model 10-? etc. Check this site--http://www.handloads.com/misc/Smith.Model.Changes.asp
