    ***SOLD***
    LOCATION: SE PORTLAND (near SE 82nd and SE Foster)


    Selling my Smith & Wesson 4th Model Top Break .32 S&W revolver (3" barrel). It is in Fair condition with very good bore and rifling. The nickel plating is probably about 60-70%. It shoots .32 S&W Short black powder cartridges and is a fun little piece of history. I was told by a Smith & Wesson forum member that this was shipped on May 23, 1889. Serial number is 1362xx.

    Will also include as package deal with my Kahr CW45 for a total of $520.

    Where do you buy black powder cartridges?

    That's exactly what I was going to post.

    This gun is not something you would likely shoot a lot. It would be expensive. It is more about having a piece of history so the demographic for owning one of these is probably quite small.

    Why not shoot it? My 1884 Martini Henry got shot fairly often and its rounds cost $7.50 each.

    If you reload you can save a ton of money and be able to shoot it a lot more than trying to buy "factory rounds." I just have never gotten around to acquiring any ammo for it and I currently don't have any place to reload so that left that option off of my table.
