Default Bought three junker pistols for $75

I bought 3 old junk revolvers today so I had something to do. $25 each. None were functional. Two are .38 S&W's and one is a 32 RF. The 32 is a cute Hopkins&Allen spur trigger with rosewood grips. One 38 is a Iver Johnson and the other is an Empire State Arms Company. The fun did not last to long as they are now all fully functional. I'll do a little more clean up on them this weekend. I sure like fixin' 'em. I miss my gunsmithing business.

Where do you find stuff like that. I am looking for practice firearms and could really use those kinds of prices for practice work.

Yeah, for 25 bucks, I'd give fixing them a try too.

Even if they aren't particularly valuable, I don't think "junker" when I see them. Those are pretty neat looking revolvers.

Third one looks like a blue jacket number one. Mid 1880's cartridge fired black powder .22

I'd recommend doing some research on those before you go working on them. They may have some value to them

None of them is worth $100 even now that they are functional.
