    First clue, it was only manufactured from 1992 to 1996, so that puts it into a 4 year time frame. Second clue, S&W used the pre-fix ( on auto pistols ) TZU in 1993 through VAM in in 1994. So my guess would be 1994. It is a modern handgun, do you need the date of manufacture for registration ??? It doesn't effect the value in any way.

    The gun was given to me a lont time ago by my father, but I never took possession (I left it with him) until now. So I am/was trying to determine if I have to legally register it. I know if before 1991 I do not. But it also appears that even after that date I do not have to given it was given to me by my father, and if not registered at that time (I would assume he would have registered it to him or not at all) I do not have to register it.

    If you have any information on this, please shed some light.

    Thanks
