Can't I remember you posting pix of that 19 conversion in .44 apecial along with a 6&1/2" model 29 some time back or am I just getting old?
The Dash is the 6th rendition of the model.DAT19K said:my first s&w. it's a 657-6. i picked it up recently. it now has a ultra dot on it. i've been researching it but i'm not finding anything about what the dash 6 means.
I have a bunch of S&W guns. I have had a few, some at the same time, multiple of the same models and you can see the older ones that are pinned and recessed have lower dashes than later models that are not pinned, and then some that are with out hammer pins that are even later - numbers.DAT19K said:thank you mcwoodduck, where did you find this info?

Look on hte Galco Site there are a few.pslshooter said:Is the first a First S&W
or is the first a first Model 28 with the hopes and plans to buy more 28's as they are a great revolver?
Either way congratulations on the purchase.
Check out some local gun shops and see if you can find a pair of the large target grips, either checkerd or smooth.
Makes the gun easier on the hand with the hot magnum loads.
My 1st Smith owned. Changed the grips out and like the way it feels and shoots. The 1911 may get put away once I get a good carry holster for this.
