Two older, 32 S&W revolvers... very small, shirt pocket and then just 'smaller'... one might be a ruger, but the emblem on the grip doesn't seem right (at work now, not looking at)

I inherited them from my Grandmother... they need some cleaning...

can I email a pic or two, and you can let me know what you think

No Serial Numbers, no Listed Manufacturer or Place of Manufacture
There is some text on them though, on the bottom of grip, and I think when one breaks open... I show you! Email address?

I'll keep the pics to a total of under 400 to 500k.

Ruger can be ruled out right off the bat. They've never manufactured anything chambered in .32 S&W and they've never manufactured a break open revolver. In fact, their double action revolvers are fairly new (Security Six introduced in 1971) as compared to the other major manufacturers.

You probably have an Iver Johnson, H&R, or one of the Spanish knockoffs.

Yeah, I'm wondering if they are Saturday night specials?

You want pics, with open (one breaks up, lift a thing that is part of the sight), the other you push release and pull pin out, and cylinder comes out...

That's them... Both Iver Johnsons...

Iver Johnson .32 (small frame) Safety Hammer, 2nd Model, c1897-190 second one, the .32...

and the other one is a (mid point of the page)
Iver Johnson Solid-Frame Revolvers

Iver Johnson .32 M1900, c1900-1941 (shorter barrel version)


Thanks! They worth anything? They in better condition that the pics I referenced... not mint by far, but once cleaned up, maybe 'good'.

heh, been reading... yeah they were...

Not worth too much either it seems, though the ones I saw were either poor condition or re-nickel finished, and looked silly bright...

Just hold on to I guess? =\
