Auction: Smith & Wesson “Pre-Model 30″ Revolver
Now up for auction: a classic Smith & Wesson “Pre-Model 30″ .32 Hand Ejector. NOTE: Auction ends May 1, 2011. Built on the round butt I-frame with five screws, this revolver chambers the .32 S&W Long. It wears a 2-inch barrel and has a 6-shot cylinder. All serial numbered parts are properly matching (frame, cylinder, ejector star, barrel and grips). The finish shows modest carry wear with thinning to the sharp edges and some light patina. There is also an area of finish loss/fading to the underside of the trigger guard. The grips are in very good shape with some handling wear but no cracks or chips. The mechanics are in good working order with good timing and lock-up. The bore is also in excellent shape. According to the serial number, this revolver should have been made in about 1949.
