My wife's birthday is coming up, and since she likes revolvers AND vintage....
I picked up a 1919 Colt .32 Police Positive today for $189 at the local fun shop. Good condition, looks old but not abused, cleaned up nicely, with almost no wear on the grips. Although I wouldn't want to be standing on the wrong end of it, it felt graceful and feminine (if such a thing can be said about a Colt revolver), and I think my wife will like it.

Is it chambered for 32 Colt or 32 Police? I have Police Positives from that era (1910-1928) chambered for both. They are both fun and accurate but not interchangeable.

.32 S&W fits, which I have read is the equivalent of 32 Police. True?

Yes, 32 Police is actually the same as 32 S&W Long, 32 S&W is what I use mostly in my older small frame guns. 32 S&W will not chamber in a 32 Colt gun. You will like the little revolvers, they are really great and a fine piece of history for an easy price.

The little, vintage .32 long revolvers are more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
Here's my S&W I-frame from 1916 . . . accurate too! EVERYONE enjoys shooting the .32s!!!
