I bought a S&W hand ejector revolver at a local gun shop years ago and am trying to get some info on this gun. It is chambered in 32 long (or 32 S&W long). It is a 6 shot double action revolver in excellent condition and the barrel is stamped 32 long. I could find no model number on the gun and the serial number is 571971. I contacted S&W customer service and they informed me that this is a pre-model? and is either a model 31 or 32 but they weren't sure which. They also stated that it was probably manufactured between 1946-1950 (maybe 1948?) but couldn't give me an exact year. I am trying to find out an exact model number and exact year of manufacture. If anyone out there can help me with this I would appreciate it. Attached are a couple of photos. Thanks!
