Default S&W model 631, 32 mag

Does anyone know how uncommon the 2 inch 631's are and what you would expect to pay for a nice example in box.

The 2" 631's are the most commonly encounter issues.

Truely NIB, unfired, unfuggered, complete, I would expect to pay north of $600.

I will take it... oh, sorry, I thought you had one for sale... :-)

I had to pull the trigger on a snubby SP-101 in 32 H&R magnum for my Mrs. since I haven't been able to find a 631; I have a Model 16 in 6-inch, and would love to round out with a pre-lock 631 snubby.

You have to be prepared to pay north of $700.00 I have a bunch of 32 mag revolvers and the 631 2 inch is easy to shoot and low recoil, when you fire the revolver barely rises off of target. Plus it holds six cartridges!! I would say you could find one, but the word is out on how good they are. The 631 4 inch is harder to find and lots more expensive.

Another option is to look for a 431 (hammer) 432 (hammerless) or even 331 (hammer) or 332 (hammerless). The 331/332 is partially Titanium and a lot lighter than the 631. I posted a link to my earlier thread about a 631. Bought it from a new member, he had one S&W and only one post. The deal went great and my kids are fighting over it.

S&W Model 631

I just picked up an unfired Md 431 for a little over $400 and it is neat. Unfortunately I stopped at a Gander Mountain on the way home from buying it and came across its grandfather, a 1957-1960ish model 30 3" in 32 S&W Long.

Cool ,did the bananas come on it? The Uncle Mikes came on mine, but they are , kinda lame. Also your barrel seems to be lazer marked and mine is stamped. I did not know they made them long enough to have changes.

needsmostuff,
No the Bananas were an add on. I still have the original Uncle Mike's, but I think the Bananas look/feel much better. The writing on the barrel is stamped, just looks kinda funny in the pic. I believe they were only made in 91 and 92 and the 3'ers were among the rarest of the Centenials

I had a 632 1 7/8". Very pretty little gun. I read somewhere there were only 900 of that variation made. Cannot substantiate it. I have a 432 now. Nice little pocket gun I prefer over any .380 striker fired pocket gun.

Default Model 631 from 1990

You can't miss the distinctive view from the business end of this 6 shot J-frame....

It's the only J-frame I could never bring myself to part with...I picked it up in a pawn shop in 1994 or 1995 for $200. It had some hideous large rubber hogues on it that I dumped for a barami hip grip, now it sports these pachmayr compacs...I have been enlightened a bit on the small number of these made (190) and will endeavor to find some original smooth combat wood grips for it...

Post it in the "For Sale" section and it will probably move quickly, especially if you have the box and papers.

To me, the currently available 2 1/8" 632 Pro makes more sense than buying a used 2" 631 for $600-$700+:



Mine was pricey - ~$648 OTD - new 9/11. It comes with fixed elevation (Drift adjustable windage.) tritium Night Sights front and rear. It sports some 60 Pro grips, extra cost ($43) from S&W Accessories. It'll chamber, fire, and extract .32 ACP, .32 S&W, .32 S&WL, .32 H&RM, and .327 Federal Magnum rounds. The elevation & windage on mine were set for coincident POA/POI from 7-10yd, using a 'combat' sight picture, with both Federal 100 gr SJHP and Speer 115gr GDJHP .327 Federal Magnum loads, which let you know you've fired something more energetic than a +P .38. The wood grips don't help the recoil, but they help the hand fit/feel... and they look pretty neat, too.
