Default 32 Long CTG Hand Ejector

Hey - looking to figure out what I got, what's it is worth and how to sell. 32 Long CTG, Serial Number 169628, Pat'd March 27, 94, Aug 4, 96, Dec 22, 96, Oct 8, 01, Dec 17, 01, Feb 6, 06, Sep 14, 09. That's everything on the gun. It is a Hand Ejector, 4in Barrel, Mother of Pearl with Fixed Sight. If it has ever been fired it was cleaned perfectly and amazingly well maintained. Picture attached (I think...). Much appreciated!

I believe it is a .32 Hand Ejector Model of 1903 - 5th change. It appears to have been refinished as the trigger and hammer are blued and one of the pins is flattened. I would estimate a value (as refinished) at about $150. It was probably made around 1915.

Welcome to the forum!

Default 3.5 inch Barrel

Thanks - if refinished would explain the condition. FYI - 3.5 in Barrel not 4. Without a tape I guess things always look bigger to me than they are, lol.

I just recently sold one to a fellow forum member for $300. It too was refinished but it looked to have been done a little better. $150 may be a little pessimistic, but not by too much. There are lots of these outthere.

Welcome to the forum.

The entire Barrel must be measured and it will be 4 1/4".

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! I think it is worth more than $150 just due to the pearls. $250-300 probably. They are fun to shoot, but I'd take the pearls off first. I frame stocks are getting harder to find but you can put some J frame target or boot grips on it. They also make it easier to grip.
