Rare S&W cal.32
I have custom made S&W .32 cal. revovler handgun. The story bedhind this gun is that my wife's grandpa lived in usa from 1925 - 1945 and the boss of S&W gave him this custom made gun. It look like new, very beautyfull gun.
I had contact to specialist at Blue Book of Gun, he wrote this to me:

After much careful research, I can only draw one conclusion that would make all of the pieces to this puzzle fit. That conclusion is that this is a rare K-32 Hand Ejector First model. There were only 94 of this model made and they were all in the 653388-682207 serial number range ( yours fits). All of the evidence points to this model (gold dot front sight, serial number, frame, pinned barrel, etc.)

Im ready to sell this gun.Where can i find gun collectors or someone who would be interest for buing my gun?

Gun broker or some other gun auction site.

gunbroker is ONE possible venue- however- there are auctioneers that specialize in highly collectable firearms. This is ONE of those companies you might check with:

You might also email Mr. Jim Supica, the curator of the National Firearms Museum in Fairfax (NRA HQ). Jim used to run Olde Town Station, which did much of that type of selling- and see if there is a company he could suggest to handle the sale. Please do NOT ask Jim to establish a value of your gun (value of an item is what it will bring at a sale- old axiom).

Or you could avoid all the hassle and make one moderator very happy by wrapping the gun securely, and ship it to me. I will love it, care for it, and shoot it now and again, and think nice things about you.

vito- sorry- just noticed that you are not here in the US (Iceland? Really?)

To sell that in the US will pose a challenge- import laws. Mr. Supica may be able to suggest a European auction house.
