I recently purchased a Smith and Wesson model ten revolver in .38 special. It has the standard, non-heavy barrel. The serial number is: AHR 9xxx. Can someone tell me approx. when it was made, or direct me to a website that has that info?

The SCSW would indicate a date around 1985 for your Model 10, it should be a dash 7 if its a standard barrel. Every American gun owner should have a Model 10, its a classic, enjoy yours. Feel free to join the S&W forum, many of us are members here, and there, and post on both boards.

Looter, FWIW, this is a really great revolver. It is well made and strong, and you can fire any .38 Spl standard or +P load in it without worry.
It has been in the S&W lineup since about 1889, with modifications and improvements, and is the basis for the entire K frame series.
To me it is as much of an American classic handgun as the Colt SAA or the 1911.

Enjoy it, and shoot it a lot.
