Since this has been asked several times in the past few days I had to look it up.

Per Supica & Nahas:"Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson" and personal conversations with S&W customer service.  There is a group of changes which were made internally and externally which are collectively referred to the Endurance Package.  These are identified by the "dash" number, I.E. -2, -3, etc.

These first "dash" numbers identifying these changes are identified thus:

All of these changes occurred aprox. 1988

Blue guns;
Model 25-6 and following (-7, -8, etc.)
Model 27-4 and following
Model 29-2E and following
Model 57-2 and following

Stainless guns;
Model 624-1 and following
Model 625-2   "        "
Model 627- all
Model 629-2E "        "
Model 657-1   "        "
Model 681-1   "        "
Model 686-1   "        "

Hope this answers your question.

The most recent I have a reference for is the 629-4 which was 1994.  The -4 indicates the new rear sight (rounded front of leaf), square extractor and drill+tap under the rear sight for a scope mount.

There may be more changes, but I havn't been too concerned with them
