    John,

    What he meant by "if the K is at the front" is if the letter K preceeds the number, instead of follows it.

    S&W generally did not end its serial numbers with a letter. They either come as a prefix, or are somewhere in the middle of the number.

    It's possible that your gun, if the number follows, was a "floor mistake" and had the K added afterwards.

    Any chance of posting a picture of it, John?

    Never know, the K may have absolutely nothing to do with the serial number at all.

    If that's the case, your gun could be quite a bit older than 1957.
