    Holy crap man, that's freakin sweet!

    What a beautiful gun. I'm not an S&W aficionado, but I'm guessing it's a model 32-SA. Always had a soft spot for top breaks too. Thanks for sharing it with us Sir...

    I know you can request an official letter of history on the S&W website, but they charge $50...

    Request the history of your S&W handgun

    nitesite has tracked down a couple S&W dates for folks, but I don't know what resource he uses...

    I was shooting my Model 042 .38 the other day. I got 2 cylinders sent downrange and the cylinder release quit working. The revolver fired the rounds just fine, but the cylinder would not release. I took the sideplate and grips off and found nothing amiss from that side, so I took the cylinder latch off and by pushing VERY hard on the latch stud, was able to open the cylinder. I have put several cylinders through it since without a hitch. Any ideas as to the cause of the malfunction?

    If the revolver has not been fired, or shot very little, it could bring a pretty penny if you were to ever sell it. I have seen vintage Model 36's going for over $500 locally over the past several months. I would hesitate to tell you to take the side plate off of it because without a very good set of gunsmith's screwdrivers, you could easily ruin the screws and also hurt the value.
    A soft bore brush (not steel), followed by running a patch through the barrel and cylinder until clean and a good, all over wipedown is what I would recommend until you determine the value.
    If you plan to use the revolver for it's intended purpose, take the sideplate and grips off and blow out the loose stuff with some canned air followed by some aerosol solvent and q-tips. Once it is clean, use a quality gun oil on the moving parts and put it back into service.
    Either way you go, congrats on a fine revolver! :)

    Does it do the same thing when someone else shoots it?

    If the sights are fixed and you eliminated human error you may need to consult a gunsmith and have them work on the sights for you
