    Question Old S&W .32 pistol ?

    123
    Hello All... I was just given an old ( close to 100 yrs.) Pistol. I am looking to identify it and
    maybe place an age to it. So , any help would be appreciated.

    This is engraved on the barrel... for 32 SMITH & WESSON. hard to make this out but , i think it
    says... ctgs as well after the S&W. serial # 71XX.

    Thanks for any help !

    Ok paco a little more information here would help a great deal, that serial number is in at lest 3 of S&Ws .32 pistols lines that are around 100 years old. Is there an exposed hammer or is it hammerless? Is it a break action or will the cylinder swing out to reload? Also any other markings you can give will help a lot as will a picture.

    Photos, man. We need photos.
    Markings are important, so include photos of them.

    I bet, without looking, that it's an Iver Johnson. Is there an owl's-head logo on each grip panel?
