Hi there,
I guess this thread is dead now, but you asked who had the earliest 32-20 Hand Ejector?
I have .32-20 first model (model of 1899), serial number 90, lettered as October 26 1901, 6.5" barrel, nickel finish, Black hard rubber grips.
She's pretty rough, but all there.

I don't believe that these threads ever die, they live on for posterity. I might as well throw my .32-20 into the mix...although I've posted it before. This is my only .32-20, a Model of 1905 4th Change from the mid-1920s (s/n 118705). It's in original condition except for the copper bead added to the front sight.

Georgia Arms is only source I've found. Takes about 2 weeks to get.

I used to have the rifle, but sold it several years ago when we lived back in Texas.
There is a Gun Show coming up on Nov 7 in Gardnerville, Nevada.
I will take this full box of ammo to it and trade or sell it.
I paid 51.95 for it.
Any interest here on this forum??
It's kinda late, but that box of ammo should say something like "safe in all modern firearms" somewhere on the back.

Default An Old 32-20

This is my oldest 32-20 and my oldest HE itís ser# is 2388 so it must be around 1900-01 first model. I was told it belonged to a law officer. But whatever the story is, itís a great fire arm and a pleasure to shoot.
I have four others in 32-20 but this is the one that l like most. The later ones donít fill your hand the way that this one does

Not an S&W, but a Colt Police Positive Special, 4" barrel, made in 1911. 32-20 WCF caliber. I hand load for it, using my own cast bullets, which makes it very cheap to shoot.

Georgia Arms seems to be best place for ammunition.

32-20 not available anywhere else, but Georgia Arms has it.

Is anyone interested in the 32-20 brass?

My 1899 .32-20, #4287, shipped in September 1901. Yours must have been built and stuck in the back of the vault and the ones built afterwards sold before yours, unless a 6 1/2" nickel wasn't popular. Who knows for sure, after all these years?
