    I found a new friend. :D
    A Smith 58 and I am wondering what year it was born.
    The serial number is S257xxx.

    Thanks in advance,
    Doctor Wu :cool:

    The S&W Model 58 was made from 1964-1977 with a total of 20,287 made. The first Model 58 made in 1964 had SN S256500. The SN you list was most likely made in 1965 (last SN of the year was S257999). The only way to really know it to get a letter from Roy Jinks.
