antique 32 S&W pistol

Post Number:#1  Postby 1845 » Wed Jul 29, 2015 5:01 pm

I have an antique S&W 32 cal, 5 shot, top break, spur trigger, revolver. Some places refer to it as a model 1 1/2.
Does anyone have any experience with these, or know a good gunsmith?
It is a single action and whatever is supposed to hold the trigger forward while cocking doesn't. I'm not sure if there is a spring or something else that is supposed to hold it. And I'm afraid to start pulling pieces out.

Any information or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

You can always pull it apart and pay someone to put it back together if you need to.

I have a US Revolver (Iver Johnson) .32 S&W Short revolver like that. The trigger return spring is broken/missing, but other than that it looks functional.

The .32 S&W Long was introduced in 1896 with the company's first hand ejector revolver. The .32 Long is simply a lengthened version of the earlier .32 S&W. The hand ejector design has evolved some, but with its swing out cylinder on a crane, has been the basis for every S&W revolver designed since. In 1896, the cartridge was loaded with black powder. In 1903 the small hand ejector was updated with a new design. The cartridge stayed the same, but was now loaded with smokeless powder to roughly the same chamber pressure.

Copying and pasting from Wikipedia makes your English look as good as your History, Romellio. :facepalm:

The 123 Streeters have really picked up their game!
