Default How about an Ode to the 32-20? Whip 'em out.

I have one S&W and one Colt in 32-20. Shooter grade for sure I bagged this for $250 a couple years ago. I love the 6.5" barrel with a round butt.

Well, that is one of many that left me because I thought I needed something newer or better. It is a 6 inch, square butt, fourth change, originally sent to Shapleigh Hardware. The .32 W.C.F., as it was marked, was and is a neat little cartridge.

An ode? Maybe a rhyme?

I had a .32-20. It was so loud that it blew my eardrums right up to the nearest cloud!

Fun to shoot, easy to reload. Hard to find in really nice condition. Would love to find a target version.

I picked this one up a couple weeks ago. Haven't picked up any ammo yet to shoot it, but should soon.

I have two. Excellent bores, which seems to be unusual in that caliber. Both targets, but unfortunately I don't get out to shoot anymore. It hurts too much knowing what the gun can do and what I used to be able to do.

Welcome to the Forum.

Someone will be around soon to give you a date. I've had at least one .32-20 revolver around since 1975. Since then, I have owned S&Ws, Colts, Cimarrons and Ubertis, and a Marlin lever gun and a re-chambered Martini.

They were all fun guns.

I have a S&W Model 1902, made 1902 4" round butt, blue. One of my favorite revolvers! I also have a Colt Police Positive Special 6" from 1919 also blue. Along with a 1980's Marlin. I owned the Marlin first then the Colt and just had to have a Smith. I think the perfect small caliber revolver would be a 5" or 5.5" length target model in 32 WCF.

My best friends grandfather was known to move things for hire on his H-D during Prohibition, his comment about S&W's in 32-20 was "They were very accurate but tended to shoot right through a man." (I think he used the High Velocity rifle ammo) we just being teens at the time (early 1970's), neither of us ever had the nerve to ask the who? or the why?

C91- I would take a wild guess and say 1912-15 on your revolver. The number under the cylinder crane is an assembly number.

I'm fresh out of S&W 32/20s. I've had several fixed sight 1905s in nice shape. The last on was a 6" and I traded it off before I
ruined it by installing adj sights. Past spring I saw a 95% + target model at a show. Guy was asking north of $2K. I can't say
I found it. At over $2K I don't believe it was lost. I will find one
sooner or later and it won't be $2K.

I have one, serial number 109xxx. The gent I bought it from found the factory letter he had and sent it. Turns out this one was shipped from S&W in Nov of 1922. When I read production numbers I would guess yours was pre WW1, but am by no means an authority on these.

Smile 32/20's

Have never been lucky enough to find a target version but do have these two. This one has been redone but I realized the other day I have a supply of triggers and hammers so I might change the nickled ones out if that's the case.



Picked this one up some time back. Didn't care for the plastic stocks it came with so I changed them out for a old pair of stags I had laying around. Both shoot jus fine although I am not a real fan of the round butts.



And yes, I have a ample of brass & bullets for my reloading.

Mine is a 1091xx range, and it shipped in Nov/1922 so around 600 in that five months. They must have been fairly popular then.

Default .32/20 new to me yesterday

A LGS took in a collection of Smith and Wesson revolvers from an estate. I had seen a 6" 1905 .32/20 in with them last week and went in to buy it yesterday. On close inspection it had a badly pitting barrel and had all the barrel markings removed during refinishing. So I bought the other one, a nickeled ,I believe 1902,1st. change with a 4" barrel. Bore and chambers are very good with a small patch of minor pitting in the middle of the bore. Rifling is sharp and bore bright. I will guess it was not shot much and exhibits no wear of the mechanical parts. Plating has minor scratches with some dark or thin spots. All serial number match. I can not wait to shoot it. I plan on handloading for it with my home cast bullets.

Am I correct on the model as a 1902,1st. change and approximate ship date of 1903 to 1905 ? The serial number is 121XX

Are these grips correct for this era?

I believe you're correct on the time frame. The grips are from the 1930s. They are the correct round butt grips but should not have medallions.

Agree. The correct grips would have concave tops without medallions.

Are these grips correct for this era?
Yes, you are correct about 1902-1st and 03-05.
Your gun most likely shipped with Black Hard Rubber grips.

Thank you for your help everyone. Advertised for some .32/20 brass for my new revolver purchase on a local forum. Bought some from a local shooter and ended up coming home with a companion rifle for it in .32/20 that he wanted to sell.

Don't forget the pictures of the revolver and the rifle together.

Here are most of mine. I prefer the early ones and have four Model 1899 in 32 Winchester and a Model 1902 in 32 Winchester. There were only 5300 32 Model 1899s made and 4500 32 Model 1902s manufactured.

Original nickle 5" target. Has been re-nickled sometime in the past and maybe 10% of the refinish remains. Still a pretty cool shooter.

Here is a picture of the Savage Sporter model 23C along with my 1902 1st change Hand Ejector. Also a 1923 add for the rifle. My rifle was made between 1923 and 1933 according to my research. The butt plate is new as well as the magazine. The magazine is not original style. Otherwise the rifle is unaltered.

I just picked up a 32-20 and 32 H&R mag convertible Ruger Buckeye with 6 1/2" barrel. Lots of reloading now for the 32-20 and loving it. My first outing saw 1330fps with my handloads in the 32-20.

Prescut
I'll see about some pics.
