Default "New" S&W .32 long, 1950 era, revolver

Just picked up this nice made in 1950, Pre-Model 30, 5 screw "I" frame, .32 long.




Chambered in the .32 S&W long cartridge.



This is actually a "5 Screw" "I" frame revolver. What great workmanship.



Since I have been known to carry .32 cal auto loaders for my pocket gun, I may actually carry this with modern ammo (In addition to this Magtech hp ammo, I have some Buffalo Bore hard cast wc and swc ammo coming.)



This is an all steel frame weighing in at only 19.9 ounces loaded (17.9 oz empty), it will be actually fun to shoot. Yes, I am going to shoot this gun. The 100 year old .32 hand ejector (5th change) shown below will not be shot. In fact, I just sprang for the $75 letter from S&W for this gun.



Man I love these .32's. If I keep this up, I may actually look for a more modern .32 H&R Magnum or a .32 Federal Magnum revolver to keep these oldies company.

Very nice! These things just kind of grow on you! I know I could not carry that little guy and not even sure if I would shoot it as it is too nice! Thanks for sharing photos of them. Kyle

WOW, that is a NICE one. One of my favorites. I shoot several different .32's, and load rounds that I have no problem carrying.
My first one, dates to 1953


One I still haven't shot dates to 1952


A set of early 32 Rim Fire and #1 1/2 Center Fire


A .32 Safety Hammerless "Bicycle
gun dating to 1907.


A .32 HE 2", dating to 1957.


Much newer .32 H&R Magnums.
