I recently inherited a collection of mostly modified turkey guns. There is a pistol that I'm curious about though. It's a S&W .22 long rifle CTG. It has a 4inch barrel and the serial number doesn't have a letter designating the frame. I'm told this makes it pre war. Can anyone give me some info on it's age and worth? It is in good condition. The right side of the barrel has a couple of scratches and what looks like a small spot of surface rust. The wood is in great shape. The serial number is 89361. Everything is tight and still operates great.

Thank you for responding.
That's what I thought but it doesn't have the K next to the numbers.
It's a Model 18 - 4" barrel. The 17 had a 6" barrel. Remove the grips and you'll find the s/n stamped on the bottom surface of the grip.
It has numbers on the part that swings out with the cylinder. There's an X then underneath the numbers 89361 with the number 7 under those.

The official s/n - as in the one that counts - will be located on the bottom surface of the grip frame - you'll have to remove the grips to see it. I notice that your M18 is equipped with target (wide) hammer and trigger; these options add a bit to value, as do the factory oversize target grips - a stock M18 would have the standard trigger, hammer and grips - as with the M10 or M15 .38spl service revolvers.
