This Old Revolver

The Pimp came back as promised. He offered me a revolver for a ridiculous price. Like I thought, he was in a world of pain, and took my much lower offer.

He claimed the old gun was a 'Sig' .32-20. It wasn't, of course. So here's the deal....let's see how many of you gunny's out there really know your older handguns.

The first person to correctly tell me the manufacturer of this handgun gets one big 'attagirl' or 'boy.'

Please forgive my poor photography.




I'm awful busy today. This little post has taken me all morning.

Go ahead, guess.

Stephen

    1. No...hint...think late 1920's or early 30's. I'd give an exact date but just haven't the time for the research. Good guess though.

  10. Smith and Wesson M&P, precursor to the Model 10. Or maybe a S&W Hand Ejector...

    1. TinCan, sorry my friend...its neither a Colt nor Smith. Not to say one of those nice firearm companies pieces weren't reversed engineered.

  11. It looks -in a blurry sort of way - like the Colt Army Special (1904-1927). I think they were made both sa and da.

  21. I also have a gun that appears to be the same gun as pictured. My Dad had it for years and gave it to me about 1995. I would like to know the age and manufacturer if possible. I don't intend to get rid of it.
    On the left side of frame it has in script "AL" or "ALS" surrounded by the words "trade mark" On the barrel it has " Winchester 32.20 WCF", ON the right it says "Made in Spain" THe serial number is short "6900" If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Jim Jenkins, jtjenlol41@Aol.Com
