I learned recently that the FBI issued S&W 3" Model 13 revolvers until they switched (briefly) to the 10MM around 1990.

Does anyone know if these FBI Model 13s were stamped with agency markings? I've been searching for a 3" K-frame and am trying to educate myself about some of the variations out there.

Thanks!

I've seen quite a few of them. None had agency markings.

I've never seen them with agency markings. The only federal agencies I've seen with agency markings on some guns is Customs, Bureau of Prisons, and some SW Model 66 2 1/2" by ATF. It had an ATF shield on the sideplate. Agents who were issued guns after the initial buy were issued unadorned model 66s.
