Default Old revolvers

I got two old revolvers that may be from 1886 era. here is pics


The large one is a Hopkins and allen mfg co. pat .86 (1886) and has a special hammer also patted in 86. The small one is a Victor .32S&WGTGE, not sure when it was made thats all that is on the barrel.
they are both in decent condition, some carbon spots i believe but with gun smith help they can be in excellent condition again, im thinking of keeping the large Hopkins and allen breaktop pistol.
and selling the small victor .32smithandwesson.

how much you think they are worth?
thanks im new to this forum.

FWIW, Victor was a lower brand of Harrington & Richardson. Look around on the internet gun sites, and search for auctions closed in past 90 days. Neither is a very expensive gun.

IIRC, the very early 32 S&W caliber firearms were made for a BLACK POWDER cartridge, and should not be fired with modern smokeless ammo.

Both look very nice. I have a few of the US Revolver top breaks- they were never very expensive guns, but I like them.

Default Old guns

the guns are safe to fire as the pressure is low and the smokeless loads are made for old guns.I shot many back in the late 30s as they were very common.and made in MASS.S&W and Colt were not common for the average person.there were alot of spur trigger guns also from the 1880s.
