Very nice. Very nice indeed.
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 LarryAwesome! 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?
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.No, I have never fired it. Maybe someday.
Did you do all the reconditioning work! Amazing transformation and Sweet gun!Very nice, Larry! Here's mine that I rescued a while back. It was heavily corroded.
