    Here is a nice little revolver, 6 shot, double action. I think it is in 32 Smith and Wesson Long caliber? I have not shot this and I am not 100% sure on the caliber. It could be .38.

    I heard this is a transition model from the 1880's when the manufacture name was changed from Forehand and Wadsworth to Forehand Arms. The early transition guns had the Forehand Arms markings but still used grips with the F&W markings. One of the grips has a small piece broken off at the bottom. There are a few places on the internet where you can by grips if you find it necessary.

    Not really sure what these are worth, but $125.00 sounds like a fair asking price.

    Thanks for the info Blitz. This could turn out to be more of a collector piece than a shooter.

    yeah i was gonna add that but i didnt, i have one before and the cylinder didnt line up with the barrel when it was shot so it would shave lead.
