Default What Model & When Made .32 S&W

This is a revolver my sister has that had belonged to her deceased husband. It needs a cleaning, but otherwise appears to be in pretty good shape.




This is really a nice revolver. Any info I could pass on to my sister would be much appreciated: age, model #, general value, etc. Thanks a bunch. TB

I THINK that is a S&W 32-20 Military and Police model. They predate the numbering of models- went out of production in 1940. Grandaddy of the Model 10. They were sometimes informally called the Winchester Model, in reference to the caliber- .32 Winchester Centerfire- AKA the .32-20. That is NOT .32 S&W- it drives a 110 gr bullet at a respectable velocity, and was carried by a lot of police officers at one time.


What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

32-20 revolvers are some of the loudest guns I have ever shot. Even though its not much of a performer, they sure do make noise.


Just walking on the edge of of my grave.
