That's a real time capsule 1911-10MM. A beautiful example. Here is mine from 1950 along with a descendant from 1986. The difference in frame size and especially cylinder length between the I frame and later J frame in the same chambering is quite apparent.

Thanks guys,
Not much of a story hardcase, picked her up at a gun show here in southern Florida several years ago. Have not had her out of the safe for a while so I took some new pics and thought I would show her off.

I know what you mean, here's the 3 1/4" I have which shipped Jan. 53,


Then a few years ago I got this little snubby, which shipped July 52,


And, last fall I fund this much newer 2" which shipped in Dec. 57, (but is not model #'d).


There's just something about those I Frames. I have a few more but not all 32's.

What's not to love? Great shape w/box to boot.

Here's a 1910 Mod 1903 4th change blued 3 1/4" 32L. Though little blue remains.
