Which frame is a Smith and Wesson revolver ser 372942 built on?
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.
There really is no way to know exactly when it was made. Smith and Wesson makes parts in batches and there is no guarantee that a frame made today will be built today. The closest you can come is a date showing when it shipped from the Smith and Wesson waresouse. Without a detailed description, to include all features, no way to give an estimate.
The S&W mod 620 (stainless steel, adjustable sight .357 Mag revolver) is built on the S&W "L" frame. It is a 7 shot revolver which has a two piece barrel similar to the Dan Wesson design. I am sure that someone has written a bad review on the gun since some writers are paid to write bad reviews, but I know of nothing bad about the gun.

Smith and Wesson did not make a model C but did use the letter C as a prefix to a serial number for the models 10,11,12,45,and Aircrewmen.The serial number C353425 indicates that your S&W was made from 1954-1956 before Smith and Wesson started marking there revolvers with the model number on the cranes of there revolvers in 1957.
Whats your question? The 340 series is Smith and Wessons lightest J frame 5 shot revolver, with an empty weight of 13oz. The CT at the end of the 340 means crimson trace, crimson trace is a company who makes grips with built in lasers. You can buy a normal 340 or just about any firearm and later add the CT grips or just but them from the factor installed, but generally they add about…
The small frame revolvers, Models 36, 37, 60, etc. were five shot and they were built upon the "J" frame. The medium caliber revolvers: Models 10, 19, 13, etc. mostly in .38 Special and .357 Magnum were built on the "K" frame. The larger guns like the Model 29, in calibers such as .44 Special, .44 Magnum, .45 Long Colt, and I believe perhaps .41 Magnum were built on the "L" frame. Hope this helps.Actually…
It was in 1935, and the maker was Smith & Wesson, but you may find the answer dissapointing- it was called the .357 Magnum. This was before S&W had model numbers. From about 1935-1939, these were custom ordered guns- you specified barrel length, trigger, hammer, sights- and S&W built it for you. You could "register" your gun with S&W. These became known as the "Registered Magnums", and are in high demand by collectors.
Semi Automatic Pistol in .45 ACP made by Smith and Wesson. It was a compact stainless steel version of the S & W 4506 with a 3 3⁄4" barrel on a smaller frame accepting 7 round single column magazine. It was produced from the late 1980's to jiust before the millennium (1999). It was well built and the one I shot was quite accurate, I should have bought it! The dash one (-1) at the…
They are different cartridges based on dimensions; however, the 38 and 357 can be used interchangeably in a 357 revolver. This is good because of the 38's lesser kick and greater affordability for practice. IMPORTANT: You can use a 38 round in a 357 revolver because the frame's built to handle the 357's greater strength. Do NOT fire the stronger 357 round from a revolver built for the lesser 38.
How often does the nagant revolver explode i heard they have been known to blow up what are the factors to this happening why does it happen and when and what are some signs that this will happen?
Maybe once! ;) Serriously though the answer is a resounding "NO". The pressures of the .460 greatly exceed those recommended for the 45 Colt/410 barrel. I highly discourage the desire to test this. The results at the least will ruin a nice firearm and at most can kill you. Save your pennies and buy a gun built for it.
Yes- but not very common. There is an automatic pistol caliber known as the .38 Super, which does not interchange with the .38 Special revolver cartridge. There have been a small number of target pistols built to shoot .38 Special Wadcutter target ammo. And there is at least one auto pistol made in caliber .357 Magnum (revolver cartridge). However, revolver ammo is rimmed, and auto pistol ammo is rimless- there are usually feeding problems when…
It will depend on the condition of the pistol. The finish and ability to function enhances the value. The prices I've seen range from 140.00 to 400.00. A pistol in pefect shape with the original box can bring 1,000.00 These guns were built from 1890 until the early 1900's. Your S/N looks to be later production.
