Antique SMITH & WESSON .32 “Wild West” SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER Spur Trigger
Model 1-1/2 AUTOMATIC EJECTOR Centerfire Revolver
Here we present an antique Smith & Wesson .32 Single Action Revolver, also referred to as the “1-1/2 Frame Centerfire Revolver”, manufactured circa 1878 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Smith & Wesson manufactured approximately 97,599 of these revolvers during its 14-year production run. This model represented the first .32 S&W centerfire caliber top-break revolver that automatically ejected spent cartridges upon opening. Similar in appearance to the Model 1-1/2 2nd Issue, this model came with a 5-shot fluted cylinder and bird’s-head grip of either wood or checkered hard rubber. This model pivots downward on opening and features a rebounding hammer that made the weapon much safer to fully load.
Not everyone was carrying Colt Single Action Army revolvers on their hips. Most folk were carrying small revolvers like this in their pants, jacket, or vest pockets, or purses in the case of women. The Smith & Wesson revolvers were among the best and the quality is both seen and felt in this example.
The overall condition is very fine. Excellent action. Bright original nickel finish and case colors. Very bright bore with nice rifling. Firm, good grips. A beautifully preserved S&W from the 1870s!
