Default S&W Serial Number Lookup

Can anybody point me to a database to look up older model s&w pistols? I can't find anything. Thanks. Adam

If you tell us the model # if known, calibre and serial # I'm sure one of us will pull our SCSW off the shelf and find the information for you if needed. Pictures are helpful, if you don't know the model, its a big book

To my knowlege there is no online database. S&W Forums has a listing of N frame SN IIRC.

But like Redcliff said, post up the model & SN. XXX the last few numbers but make sure you have the correct number of Xs. In some cases that makes a difference.

And yes... pics will help the process.

The only truly reliable one is not online. The authors of SCSW have built up a good one based on factory records, but the only place to access is to buy the book.

Well worth the money and a must have for anyone who even thinks about collecting S&W handguns.

Nice single stack "Value Series" 9mm. That configuration (blue finish 26oz) was produced 1996 to 2006. The SN is a little different. Looks like a call to S&W customer service or a $50 letter to pin the year down.

Good Luck.
