A Colt Police Positive Special .32/20 that dates to 1911. It has been reblued, but the bore and chambers are clean and it locks up tight. It was missing the original stocks and wears a set of Herrett's with a thumbrest. As soon as I find some stocks for it, these Herrett's will go back to the factory to have that thumbrest removed.

Reblued or not that is a beautiful sidearm. Look at the screws, no marring at all.

The 32/20 is no slouch as a handgun round either. Many, many, Colt and Smith and Wessons were matched with a Winchester 92 and Marlin to make a rifle/handgun combo. Do a Google search and read up on the history of the 32/20cartridge.

Nice .32-20. If you fire it, wear ear protection: I guarantee you it will make one hell of a crack!

How do I know? I have a 4 3/4" Bisley I got in Sonora MX in 1962--WHAT'S THAT YOU SAY? HUH, SONNY, YOU SAYIN' SOMETHIN'? HUH? (Nobody wore earplugs or any of that sissy stuff back then......My cousin had a 7.65 Luger with a 3 5/8" barrel. OW! Grin and bear it.).

The 32-20 is a great cartridge. You may consider it the 357 magnum of it's day. Of course it isn't a magnum, but comparing it to what was available 100+ years ago, it was that good.
