    Among my grandfathers gun collection that I am trying to date. It is a Lady Smith stamped BDN6204.

    Please help.

    Made in mid 1989. Basicaly a model 60 that was ingraved LadySmith as a marketing ploy. Their good guns. Load it up and carry it, if you got the permits.

    If it was your grandfathers and it was made in 1989, you must be a young fellow.

    CTG = The abbreviation for Cartridge.

    As in .38 S&W Special Cartridge.

    It has nothing to do with the model of the gun.

    All S&W revolvers in any caliber have CTG following the name of the cartridge they are chambered for.

    Aw, man, you gave it away.

    I was going to start telling people who had not been exposed to abbreviation conventions in modern public schools that CTG meant Custom Tailored Gun and that they had something really rare and desirable.
