10mm+P:
Between August 1994 (BRFxxxx) & January 1996 (CAMxxxx). The number only sequences are assembly numbers, used to track parts in the factory. They are irrelevant once the gun has been assembled.

wrs840:
1990. The 4006 was produced from 1990 to 1999.

We'd need to know :

d) number of shots/cylinder bores
e) type of sights.
f) serial number, and if there is a letter in front of or anywhere near the s/n on the bottom of the grip
g) Model number if it is under the crane.
That number, if it is the s/n, should come from the butt of the grip (or under the barrel or face of the cylinder).

A picture or two is worth A LOT of words in this case...
.38 S.&W. SPL.
2 Inch
?
5-shot
Front ramp
R193xxx
MOD.60

Pre-Model 14.
It's a K-38 Target Masterpiece made in 1948.

If it says Model 14 on it anywhere, you gave the wrong serial number, as Model numbers didn't start on them until 1957..

943721 = 1940 - 1945 - If it is a lend-lease, it should say United States Property, or U.S. Property on top strap.

Model 13-2 8D138XX = 1981

Model 10-7 8D09236 = 1981
