    I do NOT believe for a second that that pistol is a REAL S&W 32-20 revolver. It is a foreign copy, probably from Spain.

    Sorry but here's another vote for counterfeit. S&W's were marked .32 Winchester or .32-20, no Special. An unsupported ejector rod would well predate the MADE IN U.S.A.
    You mentioned "Modelo" in your text. I don't see it in the pictures. That would be a give-away. The triggerguard is wrong or bent. The grips resemble post-WW II. The hammer??

    BTW those pictured .32 Long Cartridges are not .32-20 WCF which has a tapered shoulder.

    If you wish to submit more and better photos please do.

    It *looks* (Modelo???) like a S&W 32-20 M&P made in the 1st part of the 20th century. In its current condition, probably around $300-$350, but it looks "off".

    It looks like an very old and tired .32-20 Hand injector, 1st Model. The hammer does not look original? and indeed the trigger guard looks as if it had been bent and repaired ( well almost repaired ). 44 Auto, what are the exact markings on the barrel, are they .32 Winchester CTG? or 32-20? Remove the grips and post the serial number on the bottom of the grip frame. I have seen some remarkable Spanish copies of the S&W but none of them had the S&W logo nor Made in USA.. Even in those by gone days it was illegal to do so.

    Viewers run up the magnification on all photos. Here's an 1899.

    All the markings are either hand engraved or stamped with individual letter stamps. The S&W logo is fake. It is not bad work and would fool a lot of folks, especially in a foreign country.

    Either the whole gun is counterfeit, or someone took an S&W copy and added the fake markings. Where such work is cheap, and an S&W can sell for the equivalent of a couple of hundred dollars more than a Spanish copy, such counterfeits are not uncommon.

    The lead in notches on the cylinder also look too long for a S&W gun.

    I have an old S&W .32-20 and the shape of the hammer and trigger guard are different than yours. Something is not right.

    When you're right, you're right, and when you're wrong, you're wrong. I concede that I'm probably wrong as sin on Sunday.:eek:
