Default Safety Hamerless

Just found this treasure in a small gun shop in Missouri. Appears unaltered and tight as can be. No cracks in th grips. Serial #157349 and in .32.

Sir.
Very nice.
I bought one 6 months ago and am looking at a second one at the LGS. They have had several. Very pretty Nickel and also a Bicycle Gun.
One may be all the collecting I need.

Very nice. Be careful to check to see if it is pregnant. I bought my first antique a little over a year ago and now I have a whole litter. I tried explaining this theory to the bride but she ain't buying it.

Make sure the barrel address is on either side or on top of barrel. More scarce. lots of cut offs out there.

finding any old S&W in pristine condition is always a novelty. There may be plenty out there but not many in top conditions. Congrats on that buy.

Always liked those little gems. Just curious if they sold it as an antique or modern? That one would have shipped in 1906 or 1907. If you do not reload, be prepared for prices all over the board for factory ammo. The cheapest out there today seems to be PPU 32 S&W, which I have shot in the past, for around $20 a box.

And I have # 145017 which shipped in October of 1906, which brackets this one nicely, even allowing for some non-sequential shipment, into 1907/08.

Gary,

They sold it to me as an antique. No paperwork or anything. Kind of surprised me.
