    Time for the 32s

    No blued 22 caliber Tip Ups, but a few blued 32 caliber Tip Ups.

    A couple of #2 Old Army 32 Rimfire Tip Ups. One shipped in 1863, the other in 1870. Sorry, but I would have to pull them out of the safe to figure out which one is which.

    A 32 Rimfire # 1 1/2, Old Model.

    pnVyHYjLj.jpg





    On to the blued 32 caliber Top Breaks



    32 Double Action fourth model. Have not dated this one yet, but this model was produced from 1883 until 1909. Serial number places it probably somewhere in the 1890s. 32 S&W.

    pn2rxaJyj.jpg




    32 Safety Hammerless Bicycle Revolver, shipped 1909. 32 S&W. Interesting to note that during this time period S&W was shipping more nickel plated pocket revolvers than blued, bu we are only talking about blued Smiths in this thread.

    plOHvXcbj.jpg




    On to the I frame Hand Ejector 32s.


    A finish challenged 32 Hand Ejector 1st Model (Model of 1896) that left the factory in 1898. 32 S&W Long.

    po5DxIXFj.jpg




    A pair of 32 Regulation Police that shipped in 1924 and 1925. 32 S&W Long.

    pmgmawwWj.jpg




    32 Hand Ejector 3rd Model. Sorry, no ship date on this one. 32 S&W long.

    plwneGGYj.jpg

    pnHkcrhEj.jpg

    You gentlemen have displayed some Smith & Wesson revolvers that make even the factory curator envious!

    And don't think because I'm a devoted aficionado of the Single Action that I don't appreciate this display of blue steel scenery.

    I suspect he has his sources for those beauties all over this great country of ours.

    Just for fun, imagine a how big a panoramic photo of @Driftwood Johnson's revolver collection would be!!

    How about a model 29-2 with the best looking factory grips I've ever seen.

    I have mostly old S&W revolvers but here is my favorite that goes just about everywhere with me. A 29-8 Limited stocking dealer special, 4 screw from 2003.

    On to the 38s.

    38 Double Action, 4th Model. It shipped in 1898, 38 S&W.

    pnRcktxnj.jpg





    On to the Hand Ejectors.

    38 Regulation Police. The only 38 I have built on the I frame. Identical to the 32 Regulation Police except the 32 is a six shooter. Only five 38s will fit into an I frame cylinder. Notice the 'middle flute' is not centered in the frame, a dead giveaway that it is a 38. This one shipped in 1924, 38 S&W as it says on the barrel.

    pmfvv8Lsj.jpg






    On to the K frames.

    The 38 that started it all. 38 Military and Police 1st Model (Model of 1899 Army-Navy Revolver). Spotting feature is the lack of an underbarrel locking lug for the front of the ejector rod. Also, as stated in SCSW this can be called a "pre-five screw four screw model" because of the lack of a screw in front of the trigger guard. That came with the 38 M&P Model of 1905 because of a major change in the lockwork inside. This one shipped in 1899, chambered for the then brand new 38 S&W Special Cartridge. Also known simply as 38 Special.

    pnYHsX8Aj.jpg




    38 M&P Model of 1905, 1st Change. 38 Special, it shipped in 1908. This one is a five screw.

    pnkAwkqsj.jpg




    38 M&P Target Model. The precursor to the K-38 and the Model 14. Notice the tiny windage adjustement screws on the rear sight. Shipped in 1917. 38 Special.

    pmZwj8Rgj.jpg




    38 M&P Round Butt, Hard Rubber Grips. 38 Special, shipped 1939.

    pmWxE4IAj.jpg




    A pair of K-38s. The one with the fake stag grips shipped in 1957. Somebody reshaped the Patridge front sight.

    The one with the Magna grips shipped in 1950. Both are chambered for 38 Special.

    pmpEhf0yj.jpg




    K-38 Combat Masterpiece. Precursor to the Model 15. Shipped 1953, 38 Special

    I'm gonna take a break for some lunch now. I'll come back later with the post 1957 blued 38s.

    OP here.
    You must have a pretty sizeable collection. I'm willing to bet at least 150 guns of both single and double action.

    That photo is at least 10 years old. I was to lazy to get off my butt to go look and went with what my 70 year old brain thought it was. Of course you are right. Model 25-13 .45 LC. :uhoh:

    Model 58 purchased ANIB and unfired. Just loaded up some Starline .41 magnum brass to remedy that situation.
