Default My first topbreak

I've never been crazy about the double action top breaks. However, I do like the looks of the single action top breaks.

I found a .32 1 1/2 centerfire at a local gunshop and picked it up. After I got home from work today, I dug around in the ammo dump and found a partial box of .32 S&W (marked $7.35 for 50 rounds).

I went out the back door and set an empty large peanut container on a fence post and popped off a few rounds. (Living in the country is great ) The little gun shot pretty well.

This revolver locks up extremely tight when cocked.

I'm happy.

I'll take a few pictures in a day or so, depending on the weather.

Default MG, I love those little guns, SA and DA both...

To me they are a testament to the workmanship and design back in those days...I frequently carry a .38 S&W New Departure in my pocket. It was made around 1903, and has some loss of nickel, but works like new.

Be careful-you might become a fan...
