The diameter of the .32 S&W Long cartridge is 0.335" and the diameter if the .38 S&W cardtridge is 0.386". The current pressure standard (SAAMI) for the .32 S&W Long is 15,000 psi and for the .38 S&W, 14,500 psi, which is basically equivalent to Black Powder Pressures.

Serial Number 49376 would put the manufacture date after 1900 . I would not hesitate to fire this lovely revolver with currently loaded major factory(i.e. Winchester, Remington, etc.) ammunition..
Thanks or the info, Probably won't shoot it much, but will try it out.

I had a knock off of that gun many years ago, I think it was an H&R something or another.

Made in 1895 (estimated).

Value would range form $150 to $200 depending on mechanical condition.
