It has a 4 1/4" barrel and has the number 10966 stamped on the bottom of the butt. From the attached pictures, you can see that the bluing is worn a bit on the cylinder.

Can anyone tell me when this revolver was manufactured, the approximate value and any other information about it?

Thank You....

I am looking in the "Gun Digest Book of Modern Gun Values" It is this years edition. It sounds like the gun in question is a Smith & Wesson 32 Hand Ejector (Model 30). There was also a First Model (Model of 1896) The first model had the Company name and model dates on the cylinder instead of the barrel.

The model 30 (with the marking on the barrel instead of the cylider) was produced starting in 1908. It was dropped from production in 1972. The values in the book are for the later production guns. It lists the values as follows.
EXC: $375
VGOOD: $295
GOOD: $175

The value of your gun may be higher or lower depending on age and condition.

By the way...the original post in this thread is over a year old.
