    Don’t know if the pic worked. This is a nice 4-screw in 32 SWL. Serial num is485### and frame, crane, cylinder all match. Fun to shoot and in pretty good shape. Any suggestions for a nice, gentle load behind a 78 gr rn bullet? I think this could be a fun gallery gun.

    Nice gun Digger! 32's are fun to shoot.

    I've only used 90g Hornady & Missouri RN bullets and 100g Meister double end wadcutters with Trail Boss, HP 38, & Titegroup powders, all with good results. Some load data is available online: Hodgdon Reloading | Home

    Enjoy...

    You have a nice pre war ".32 Hand Ejector-3rd Model" from ~ the late 1920's.

    It's actually a 6 screw although pre wars are not usually referred to by screw count until the 1950s because that's when three of the screws were deleted in succession; 1st the tension screw in the front grip strap #6, then the front trigger crew #5, and lastly the top side plate screw #4. You'll notice these I frames are different from the K and N frame screw count.

    Check the manuals and try loads for the powders that you have, until you find the comfort level you like.

    Good looking revolver! I have one also. Your stocks are in good shape and somewhat fragile. Consider getting a set of wooden stocks for shooting.
