The serial number of Taurus revolvers is usually stamped on the right side of the frame ahead of the trigger guard. With the serial number, Taurus Customer Service can go into the computer and tell you the model number for certain. This can be important if you are registering a firearm.Mar 17, 2011
I had a Taurus revolver from the 70s that before Taurus started importing them but were imported by others. Taurus had no record and offered to take it in trade for a current production one. I didn't ask how much they would have allowed.
