And I thought the Annie numbering system was illogical, S&W's is horrible...

Well, anyone missing an owners manual? Chances are it's on here:


S&W Owners Manuals

The Army manuals are pretty cool.

I didn't know six of them.

I was a big S&W auto fan, and still am a huge S&W revolver fan. I love those K-frames, old and new.

I miss my 622. Butt ugly but reliable and accurate as hell.

Wow, all but 6?!

Crazy, I couldn't keep track of all of them without one of these model wheels:

I had to look at the numbers and figure some of them out, but I know what the numbers mean, at least when they are right.

S&W had so many model numbers and variations, they couldn't even keep them straight. Look at the 6906/6946. According to the model number, with the last digit a "6", it should be of all SS construction. But, it has an aluminum frame with a SS slide, so the model should be a 6903/6943.

Is there anywhere that lists the meanings of numbers like that, or is that something that you've come to learn after following them?

The best source is the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson. There is a chart that breaks it all down. It's been posted over on Smith-Wessonforum.com, too.
