its a S&W DA .32 revolver 1889-1906. frend of mine was trying out his new metal detector and we came across it.. of course i let him keep it as it was his find and i doubt that it would be worth all that much in the condition it was in

the bullets above it were from some of my stuff i had shot in the past

thought that was pretty damn cool

edit to add just talked to him again.. he says it looks like the gun was deliberately broken.. makes me wonder if i should be looking for human remains or something... maybe solve some 100 year ld murder mystery..yeah right

A little Brasso, it'll look like new.

Have him use this method to clean it up.


I use it in restoring old farm equipment.

We dug out our pond and found a Mule shoe that had been at the bottom for 70 years. It pretty much restored it to about 80%, even the nails in the shoe. It might make it into something he could at least hang on the wall.
