Hey there all. Yesterday I got a S & W model 10-6 for $300 from a local dealer. Can anyone help w/ the year of manufacture please?
Model 10-6 serial # D925251. I know it's from 1968-1977, but was hoping for a more specific date.
It is in very good shape and will be a good shooter for me. Thank you for the help!

1976-1977.

Keep in mind that the dates given by the factory are shipping dates, not manufacturing dates, and that S&W doesn't ship their guns in numerical order.

Your Model 10-6 is a classic sixgun. Many feel that it is the best version of the .38 Military & Police to own. Just about all of the subsequent changes made to the Model 10 after the -6 were made to make the gun a little cheaper to manufacture. You got a good price, too.
