    Makes sense what you wrote, as I have been to several gun stores and they could not help. When I learn how to post pictures I will. Know anyone in the
    charlotte, N C area with a real s and w 1917 revolver?

    .32 is little too small, the eject rod won't push it out of cylinder. A .357 will almost go in but they were not developed until much later.

    Here is a photo of a 1917 Commercial Model.

    From the the front of the cylinder to the muzzle of the barrel is 5 1/2”.

    How many chambers (holes) the cylinder? Sounds like you could have something chambered for a 38 S&W or a 38 Special.

    Hmmm... I wonder if the OP has a 38 Regulation Police Revolver. They usually have a 1917 Patent date stamped on the bottom of the butt and will not fully accept a 38 or 357 cartridge. Joseph, does your revolver have 5 chambers in the cylinder?
    Or it could be an old Colt 38 service revolver chambered for the old 38 Long Colt. We are dying for pictures here!

    6 chambers, barrel shorter than your picture of colt 1917. .38 too big for chamber

    Is there no caliber marked on the barrel? What kind of .32 did you try? .32 Long? or the .32-20/.32 WCF?
