If it is new enough, the model number is stamped on the frame under the crane. Open the cylinder and look at the area below the barrel on the frame. If it is too old, you will have to match the design through pictures (the Modern Gun Values books, for example) or take it to a gunsmith for appraisal. Determine the age will take additional research.
Not enough information to answer.
Need to provide frame size and/or caliber.
I need to know the model of the handgun. Serial numbers are reused for the different models.
What is the age of a smith Wesson pistol with a serial number of J318086
Need to know all markings, features, bbl length, type of action, finish and caliber to give an answer.
You can not tell the model number with just the serial number.
The model number of the revolver helps alot then i will tell you the value
Can't tell model number from just the serial number.
Call Smith and Wesson and they will tell you. Yours is sometime in the early to mid-80's.
Call S&W with the serial number and they will tell you.
The numbers AVU6432 are the serial number to your Smith and Wesson handgun.This indicates that it was made in July 1987.as to the model of Smith and Wesson you have.Open the cylinder of the revolver if thats the case and look on the inside of the crane.This will tell you what model you have.If you have a semi-auto pistol the model will be marked on the slide/or frame.
Basically impossible to tell a model from just the serial number.
It is impossible to tell with just the serial number and no other information. Handgun? Long gun? Revolver, Semi-Auto?
Call S&W and they will tell you
No way to tell if it was done after it left S&W.
Sorry, I can not help you with the serial number, but if you tell me the model or if there is no model on it the caliber and barrel length and if the butt is round or square I think I can tell you.
