    Does anyone know how old this revolver is? It is a 38 S&W Special ctg, serial # 53953?

    Are you sure that's the serial and not the assembly number? The serial is on the butt. I ask because according to this other thread I'm reading, I cant find your serial. I know this other thread is a good starting point, but also that it is incomplete because I can't find my own serial on it either.

    So... According to this, all I can figure is that the model was introduced in 1977, and that's the best I can do.

    Please do check SN on the butt of the gun. The 64-3 DID start in '77, but seem to recall a letter prefix, like ACE, etc. You CAN email S&W giving them the SN, and they will give you the DOB.
