SMITH & WESSON 1st Model .32 S&W Safety Hammerless “LEMON SQUEEZER”
1st Model 5-Shot Revolver Conceal Carry with PEARL GRIPS!
Here we present a 1st Model Smith & Wesson .32 S&W Double Action Safety Hammerless Revolver, made circa 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts with a serial number range of 1 through 91417. The Smith & Wesson Safety Hammerless models were produced from 1887 (1888 for the 32) to just before World War II. They were chambered in either .32 S&W with a 5-shot cylinder or .38 S&W with a five-shot cylinder. They were most often produced with a 2-inch, 3-inch, or 3.5-inch barrel. But some 6″ barreled versions are known to exist. This revolver was made to be a simple, compact and reliable firearm that one could carry in a pocket or a holster around the turn of the 20th Century. This revolver features an internal hammer design to remove risk of snagging or stopping the action. There is a grip safety built into the back of the grip frame. The frame is a top-break design that activates the automatic ejector. These are very nice features from the turn of the 20th Century! They were known as “The New Departure” to reflect the company’s new approach to designing revolvers.
The overall condition is very good. The nickel finish is about 60%. This one has some initials that have been scratched through the finish on the left side. The action is excellent. The bore is a bit dim but with clear rifling. The grips are mother of pearl and both halves are solid and luminescent. This is a really good-looking S&W revolver!
