A Gold Box and a Red Box but what did the S prefix M&P ship in?



Seiko - Nice revolvers, and nice photos also, wish I could take as nice shots as you do.

Ahhh wish I had a red box snif...

I have a pair of M&P's that should have red boxes with them but alas no boxes. I get tempted every time I see one on gunbroker to buy it just for the box

I kinda think that the M&P gold box is better looking then the K38 gold. The writing on the K-38 makes me think of the 60's for some reason.

Don't have my date book handy, give me a few and Ill get it for ya.

Will5A1 Sorry when I read your post thought you were asking for date when the S started, not what box.

S would have been in the gold box. Red is for pre war stuff. (There might be a few odd balls to that)

Anyhow the S serial # prefix started March 23 1948 until 1957 I think it was when they came out with the model numbering system with the model 10.

Seiko - my apologies, I should of prefaced my question with the warning "Silly arcane quiz for obsessive S&W collectors" or not posted the question and just admitted I was showing off revolver boxes - that is an early post war long action M&P, as is the red box, which is two piece. S&W used some of these red boxes in the early post war years, along with some left over pre-war hinged top red boxes. It isn't clear to me when the switch was made to the gold box. The S prefix serial numbers switched to the C prefix in 1948 for the M&P.

I've been trying to take a photo of a nice 22/32 Kit Gun from 1954 with its box but I can't get a photo that looks halway decent, if and when I manage it I'll post it.

Wow, I've heard of those Smith 'n' Westowns. They sure got lots of 'em.
Thanks, dtown240, for posting that nice picture- I haven't got one of mine. But here's my "IDPA" rig, with the four-inch .357 Model.

I am freakin tired of seeing all these shiny revolvers. What is it, fellas? Never shoot them? Never practice?

I want to see some WELL used wheelies.

Anyone own a S&W Model 27 with a 5" barrel in nickel finish? If so, post your picture. I used to own one. And I sure miss it.

Thank you!

I should have posted up pictures of my 625 after 300 rounds through it the other day. Using Wolf ammo, at that!

My most accurate revolver:



Smith & Wesson 10-7, square butt K frame, with
Douglas stainless bull barrel
Bo-Mar sight rib
Matt Hard-Chrome finish
Morini Grips

It all adds up to:



This is a 6-shot group at 50ft, kneeling position.
