    Well, let's just solve this right now.

    I ain't skeered of the internet.

    My SSN is 666-66-6666.

    So......there.

    BTW...

    My 686 locked up once.

    Just once.

    Mine never has.

    Yet.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Mine was my fault. A healthy dose of H110 under 125 JHPs with an inadequate crimp will lock up any.357 revolver.

    Like I said...once. Lesson quickly learned

    That's it. I'm reporting it to the police. But they won't have the number. Or will they? Or, who gives a about a serial number on a gun they don't own? No one should, but..

    I don't remember the original picture of the 686 yoke, but typically the SN is on the butt of the gun, not the yoke. That is an assembly number plus the model number.
    Nope, S&W has put the SN and model numbers on the yokes for as long as I can remember.

    I know, at least from the 70's and LONG before they introduced the 686 in the mid-late 80's

    H110 and W296 need a good crimp indeed. Found that out in my .44 mag. Oddly enough I found it when I emptied the cylinder after an unsatisfactory first three shots on the target. After I threw the remaining rounds in the box I noticed they were a little taller than the others. It wasnt a huge amount, but enough to notice.

    Good to know. Neither of my K-frame revolvers have the serial number in the yoke. I must be and old timer. One is a 65, other in a 19. Model number, yes. Serial number, no.

    The oldest S&W I have is a 70ish mod 15-3, it has the serial# on, or more accurately under, the yoke on the frame

    Just did a search, and it should have been manufactured in 1975

    Mine are a bit older. SN on the butt.

    Edit: what are your sources for S&W SNumbers? I can't find a good source.

    Not helpful. My prefix is AFU and I was issued it in about 1982 or so.
