    Contact the manufacturer and give them the model number, caliber, and serial number. They should be able to tell you what year they made it.

    Try Google, I have an old S&W break open 38, using the serial number I found it was manufactured [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]during 1895-1909.[/FONT]
