Bought my first pistol DW 15-2 6", ser#177622 in 1982, wife and I shot it quite a bit. even did some deer hunting with it. Sat in the box for many years, took good care of it, have seen many pistols in all the years, have had my share of autos,  but am drawn to revolvers. Recently while snooping in one of many local gun shops, came upon DW V22 4", ser#22S001989. Then another DW V22 6", ser#22S001402 popped up to ad to my DW collection. The V22 ser#s seem fairly low, is there a way to date them?

dwf-welcome to the dwf

We run a Serial Number Registry, with known purchase dates, that usually gets you pretty close.  Without looking, probably around 1988.
