SMITH & WESSON .32-20 WCF “Hand Ejector” Model 1905 Revolver C&R
FINE Fourth Change CONCEAL & CARRY Revolver
Here we present a C&R Smith & Wesson .32-20 WCF Hand Ejector Model 1905 Fourth Change Revolver manufactured circa the World War I era with a production run between 1915 and 1940 in Springfield, Massachusetts. The serial number range of these ran from 67,701 to 144,684 before production was stopped in 1940.
The “Hand Ejector” models were the first time S&W made a revolver with a swing-out cylinder. Interestingly, there is no cylinder latch, but the action opens by pulling forward on the exposed portion of the cylinder pin. This frees the spring tension and allows the cylinder to swing free. Another novel feature of this model is the cylinder stop location, which is located in the top of the frame over the cylinder. This revolver is chambered for .32-20 Winchester Centerfire cartridges, has a 6-shot fluted cylinder and was offered with 3.25″, 4.25″ and 6″ long barrels. Available with a round or square butt, it also came with checkered hard rubber grips and was either blued or nickel-plated. Factory installed target sights were available by special order.
The overall condition is good. Original nickel finish. The action is excellent. The bore is reflective with good rifling, however, it has a bulge just forward of the cylinder arbor lug. The grips are in good shape. The numbers match.
