I was at a Local Gun show about two year's ago and Early Sunday Morning and Older guy I would guess in his late 70's walked up to my Table. He had with him an Older Leir-Sigler S&W box tucked under his arm. I asked if his S&W was for sale and he said Sure as he handed it to me. I read the box end flap describing the revolver and I was in a Bit of shock but I held my Poker face as I Opened the box. There it was a Mint only Factory fired S&W Model 632 Centennial revolver. I had Read about these and seen them in picture's in the past but I knew they were Rare to locate. The S&W Model 632 was made back around the early 1990's time span and they are chambered in The Infamous H&R .32 Magnum. Being that the caliber is smaller they are a six shot revolver which is a Plus to me.
I asked what he wanted for it ? he smiled and said exactly what I paid for it back in the early 1990's $275.00 or I will take it back home. I Placed it under my Table and gladly paid him his full asking price. I knew that this gun sold for a lot more than that new but who am I to offer with an elder ? I exchanged names and address's with him then my gun show partner asked him what the other gun was that he had. it turned out to be a Seacamp Pistol. They are super high quality and back when they were very Popular they had a six month waiting list for this gun. it too was Un-fired and my buddy scored it for $250.00. Long story short we were Both very Pleased and the purchase of these two gun's alone made the event well worth coming to.
On the way home I stopped off at a Drug store and Bought my wife a Valentine's day card as well as a Pink Gift Bag and some tissue paper and a box of Chocolate's. I Placed the enw to me S&W Model 632 in the bag as well and gave it to her when I got home. She is a S&W revolver Lover like me so she was really thrilled to get it. I later learned that is shipped in 1992 and that they were a One Year offering back then with only a total of 1000 of them Ever Being made, and that explained to me why I had not seen one before. I like the .32 round and carry a S&W Model 431 P.D. which is chambered in .32 H&R Magnum daily. I had swapped a guy for it about Seven year's ago at a gun show and had given a Nice S&W K-38 for it. it was brand new in the box and I have carried it ever since. I hand load so the load's that I produce are much more potent than what the factory load's are. So, Now we both have air-weight gun's chambered in .32 H&R Magnum.
My 431 P.D. has a two piece barrel with a scandium frame and titanium cylinder weighing in at just 12 OZ. empty. My wife's model 632 has a Stainless Barrel and cylinder with a Scandium frame weighing in at just 16OZ. empty. Her's remain's unfired and rest's on her bed nightstand. Here is my wife's S&W Model 632 Centennial air-weight as well as my S&W Model 431 P.D. air-weight shown wearing a set of rare Bird's eye maple stocks.The Holster's were made by D.M. Bullard of Azel, Texas and to me are the best Pocket holster's out there as they do not print the gun while in your pocket. Regards, Hammerdown
