I have a couple of the hammerless .32s, and they are a hoot.
Damn! Sorry, I meant to post: U.S. Revolver Company...

Default The pair together

Finished the resto on the second US Revolver. Now the pair are together.. Thanks to C3's research, I know the hammerless was born in 1910 and the hammered in 1914.. Both are polished with the hammer, triggers, and trigger guards blued or case hardened..

Wow, those turned out great. I'll definitely have to pick one up if I find one around here for the right price.

On the nickle plated ones that the nickle plating is beginning to chip, how do you repair them?

IF the EPA has not shut them down, you useta could get a home nickel plating kit that used 2 ea 6v dry cell batteries from Texas Platers Supply, 2453 W. Five Mile Parkway, SGN., Dallas, Texas 75233. Phone (214) 330-7168

If you have a small area, and base metal under the plating is discolored, temporary cosmetic quick fix- make a small ball of aluminum foil, about an inch cross, and scrub the spot with the foil ball.

Thanks for the tip c3, if I get one that's flaking, I'll be sure to give them a call.
Also, that tip a bout the foil is interesting, thanks.
