Smith & Wesson .32 S&W Long Vermont Bootlegger Hand Ejector 5th Change ca 1914 Blue Cut to 2 1/2 inch Double Action Only Fair no Front Sight
OUR # HG7985

Item Description

From its home domicile in the Lake Champlain area comes this historic and collectable .32 Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector Revolver, Fifth Engineering Change. From its 157000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1914. The series ranged from number 102501 in 1910 up to 263000 in 1917. Manufacturer was Smith & Wesson of Springfield, MA. Type is old time customized double action only pocket revolver. That's not how it shipped in 1914, but that's how it wound up after 1919. Construction is entirely steel metal with late production replacement grips. Barrel was originally 4 inch pencil type tapered surface, pinned into the frame. It has been roughly cut to 2 1/2 inch with no front sight remaining, as the photos show. Bore is 5 groove right hand 1:18.75. Remaining rear sight is target type, windage and elevation adjustable with no front mate. Frame is small, ancestor to the J frame, with Round Butt grip frame. Trigger is .225 smooth face service width, with matching serrated spur hammer. Cylinder Capacity is Six Rounds of .32 Smith & Wesson, or .32 S&W Long ammunition, interchangeably. This revolver is Not designed for +P ammo or anything approaching 1000 fps velocity. Ignition is hammer nose type firing pin. Safety system is internal transfer bar. Weight empty is 18 ounces, with center of gravity at the trigger, 22 ounce vicinity loaded. Maximum overall length is 6 3/4 inches from the muzzle to the grip frame butt; 4 1/4 inches high, and with a lateral thickness of only 1.3 inches. Finish was originally polished surface blued steel, with color casehardened trigger and hammer. Magna type imitation ivory grips are replacement, but aesthetically correct for a bootlegger piece. Surface detractions are extensive. Forty years of touring Lake Champlain produces rust, and bootlegger aesthetics dictated at least one sanding job. Never mind, either, the 1.5 to 3.5 inches of barrel that are missing; Champlain bootleggers weren't interested in target practice. We rate this Hand Ejector as Fair / Sanded, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore and cylinder chambers show about 30 % light internal pitting. Revolver times correctly, however, in all six positions with minimal lateral cylinder play on all six. We're offering this Vermont / New York / Quebec .32 revolver for only $ 259.00. Not transferable to non C&R civilians in Massachusetts. Transferable to Californians as a Curio and Relic.
