This is a nice example of an early Smith & Wesson Double Action Pocket Revolver in .32 caliber. 3" barrel, five-shot cylinder, nickel plated finish, and checkered hard rubber grips with S&W logo. The barrel rib has tiny S&W address and numerous patent dates ranging from 1865 to 1882. This one is a 4th Model which was produced from 1883-1909. The cutoff for antique vs. modern for the S&W .32 DA is approximately 209,000. This one is well under the cutoff in the 175,000 range which qualifies it as a pre-1898 antique. 100% matching numbers on frame, barrel, cylinder, barrel latch, and grips.
NRA Antique Excellent Condition. 95% original nickel overall. Hammer and trigger exhibit good portions of their original case colors. Barrel latch and trigger guard respectively show 50% and 75% of their original blued finish. Checkered hard rubber grips are in excellent condition with sharp checkering. No chips, cracks, or repairs. Good screws and pins overall. Excellent markings. Mechanics are perfect and tight. Bore is Very Good.
