    .32 Long HE

    Like me some old S&W's. New member first post. Looking thru post for info on HE below. Hope you folks can help. 4.25 in barrel. Serial # 3586xx bottom frame grip & cylinder. Serial # under barrel...B 3586xx. No #'s inside wood. Grips like een on Bekeart .22's. From what little i know, Bekeart's were .22. These grips added or original? Mushroom ejector. Have enjoyed perusing all post. Any help/info appreciated. Just got 4th edition Standard Catalog of S&W. Great read. Thanks from North Carolina.

    Neat little gun. I have one similar to it in nickel - though not in as good of condition as yours. I've only had it a couple of weeks and haven't even had it to the range yet. I spent a couple of hours polishing up the nickel. A couple of before and after pics. I just finished repairing the cracked left grip and haven't got any pictures with the original grips back on the gun yet.

    Welcome to the forum. Very nice old 32 you have and should shoot great. Looks to be a 32 Regulation Police made from 1917 to 1942. The grips could be original but no stamping on left bottom stock panel "Patented June 5, 1917" So may be a copy not sure. Nice old gun.

    Not a Regulation Police as the backstrap isn't rebated for the RP grips. What you have are 2 screw target grips on that gun. If they are original, that would have been a special order which would show up if you get a Historical Foundation Letter. Odd, but not unprecedented.

    If I had to guess, I'd say they were a later addition.

    Thanks for info. Still wonder bout serial #3586xx on bottom frame grip & cylinder but # under barrel is...B 3586xx. Have other .32 HE 4in. (improved 'I' frame?) with recess/cutout on rear frame grip and bottom contour is different than pictured revolver and 2 screw grips pictured will not fit. Curious, any info appreciated. Thinkin bout getting letter but it may not provide all answers. Not brightest bulb but my limited 'research' leaves more questions than answers. Appreciate your knowledge and time.
