I have recently acquired this neat looking .32 Regulation Police.

Serial number 436*** puts it somewhere around 1934 or maybe later.

Condition is very good, came with box and some papers and target.

According to the S&W Standard Catalog (Supica & Nahas), this was produced between 1917 and 1942, serial numbers 260000 to 536000. The words "Regulation Police" never featured on the gun. 5 Screw. Knurled round extractor knob, 6 shot fluted cylinder. Interesting to know that the stocks (grips) were not interchangeable with other previous models, did not feature a brand logo however they did have a stamping on the bottom left buttstock "Pat. Jun 5 1917".

Enjoy.

Thanks for feedback.

Re knurled round extractor knob - this seems to have disappeared in all post war guns, book does not mention different one on these pistols.

Re grips, again, book only makes mention of these types, which appear to have been made solely for this model.

Very nice!
Only the 38 S&W models were stamped "Regulation Police".
The non medallion grips are from the 1920's. Are they numbered to the gun?
