    Spanish for registered would be "Registrado"

    Latin is Registradas. Spanish is a Romance (Latin Based) language.

    The best thing about those K frame Smith&Wesson's is the "shootability" especially in 38 Special. A pencil barrel shoots as well as a heavy barrel and just about anybody can handle the recoil. Naturally the HB guns are easier to control but the slim barrel guns are just as accurate. The best thing S&W ever did was bring out the 586 and 686's. They digest full house 357's a lot easier than K frame guns although the 19's and 66's are a lot more comfortable to tote.

    Not to put too fine a grammatical point on it Petrol & Powder, but in Spanish it is customary for the adjective to match the noun in both gender and plural basis. Therefore the word “Marcas” which ends in an “A” and an “S” would demand agreement with “Registradas.” I have to admit my Spanish is fifty years rusty, but La Senorita Upshur would never forgive me if I wrote “Marcas Registrado.”

    I'll accept that as fact and explain that my interpretation came from a S&W rep about 30 years ago. He explained that S&W chose to use Latin over Spanish because it was more universally accepted across different countries. Brazilians speak Portuguese, Peruvians speak Spanish, Argentinians speak a little bit of every European language......
    Now, he may have just been making that all up, I really can't say.

    If the Spanish is grammatically correct, then I will say that I'm wrong and that marking on S&W revolvers is Spanish and not Latin.

    It's in Spanish, the reason S&W did it was to counter the numerous copies being produced in Spain (google Eibar revolvers as an example).
