Smith and Wesson J Frame S/N Prefix look up
I don't own enough Smith revolvers (yet) to need the book but if someone here just happens to have a copy and wouldn't mind...
I recently bought a Model 36 S/N AEZ 3XXX.
Round butt, NOT a pinned barrel but does still have the hammer mounted firing pin. No Dash under the crane (just stamped Mod. 36).
My best guess is 1984-85 mfg.
Pics and range report to follow in the Revolver section.

1984 is what the SCSW would guess also, enjoy it and I'll look forward to your range report.
