View Full Version : S&W letter of authenticity

07-19-2010, 11:22 AM
S&W owners, has anyone used this service? It used to be $30, but looks like it is $50 per gun now. Can anyone comment about the type and quality of information. Don't want to spend 50 bucks per gun if all they are going to tell me is the year it was manufactured and some generic information.

Thank you.

If you have a really old or possibly rare example that might be desirable to a collector the letter will tell you when it left the factory, options, whatnot.

I own a 58YO wheelgun and while it MIGHT be collectable, I'm considering a letter just to get one with Mr. Jinks' sig on it before he retires. That might be more collectable than the gun someday.:D

Have a look here.
