Once again I had to press “Like” because there are no buttons for “Love”, “Adore”, or “Lust After”. Please tell me you shoot it occasionally as it deserves.

My 30-1
Iíve had it for several years. Upon examining the piece I could not see if it had been fired. Also had two experts voice the same opinion. When I cleaned I found very little residue in the barrel or chambers. Factory test firing? The photos donít do it justice. The grips are original S&W. No I havenít shot it, yet.

No, those grips are not OE, but they look nice on the gun anyway. Your Model 30 almost certainly came with checkered wood (walnut) service-pattern stocks. In any case, very nice little .32 and uncommon with the 4-inch barrel.

Default Nickel 31-1

This is an early Regulation Police. Can't be sure if it has been fired or not but it is in overall excellent condition. I don't intend on shooting it and will probably offer it for sale here on the Forum. Have no idea of what % of condition it would be rated by those who have more experience in doing so.

At one point I had over a dozen .32's, including 32RF's. Pre 30's, 30's,30-1's, etc. So much fun to shoot. Alas, have all been disposed of now as I work through reducing my collection down to bare minimum.
