On newer models I think the model is stamped on the cylinder yoke.

Useful data may or may NOT be behind the yoke!
Model Numbers began in 1957-58.
So first, look for a Model Number: If there is NO Model number behind the yoke, there is probably NOTHING we need from back there.

Unless I miss my guess, that is way too early for a model number. I THINK it is a .32 Hand Ejector, model of 1903, MAYBE 5th change. And a damned pretty one at that! Pre WW2, it would grow up to become the Model 30 or 31 (can't recall which)

The real key will be in the patent markings (top of barrel) and the SN (on the butt).

And- while finding .32 S&W Long wadcutter is about as fun as looking for unicorn eggs, it is a very fine target round, cheap and easy to reload.

If you can get some numbers, I can drag out my Standard Catalog 0f S&W and see what I can find. If you don't mind my asking, what is their price?

I called S&W wit the s/n 223xxx. They confirmed it was a change 5 produced in 1916. I ordered reproduction grips for it today.S&W .32 long - Smith & Wesson Forum

I can't think of a gun with the S&W logo on it that I wouldn't be happy to buy for $100.

No, that is NOT a good deal.







It is an incredibly FREAKIN' are-you-kidding-me did-ya-at-least-take-him-dancing-and-buy-him-a-drink-first GREAT deal! Unless there are major mechanical problems I can't see in the picture, you got that for 20-25% of what it's worth. HOOO! That is a dance-a-little-dance category of deal!


To a pawnshop just looking to turn merchandise over promptly for cash flow, that might be just another 32 revolver. I assure you, it is NOT.
