Awesome! Color me green with envy. Boriqua, we are looking at a fine set of hens teeth. K32s are scarce and expensive when found.
And welcome to the forum Big Larry. Anything more you can tell us about that rare beauty?

John

Bought it a few years ago off the S&WCA. I had to rush to the Credit Union to see if I could get the $$$. I had an hour to get back to the seller as I was the first to call and he had many others backed up to buy. I got the $$$ and bought the revolver. It was a great deal, and could not pass it up. No, I have never fired it. Maybe someday. Not to keen on centerfires, I like the 22's. Thanks, Big Larry

Problem with shooting any revolver in this condition is the drag marks that will be left on the cylinder. Even opening & closing the cylinder can leave marks. I always close the cylinder in such a way that the bolt falls directly into the notch, but marks are still left when the cylinder rotates. Nolte's book "Pistolsmithing" shows how to stone down the top of the bolt to prevent this happening, but I've never tried it, though it looks easy.

This revolver has been fired and I do have some ammo for it. I just have so many guns it is near impossible for me to get around to shooting them all. I do not shoot my collectible guns. Too many things can go wrong. Big Larry

Looks great in the photos .. was it the pre or post polishing that you are unhappy with?

Looks like it would be a fun project .. its kind of got me thinking I may be looking to harshly at some of the less than perfect guns and maybe it opens up my shopping options
