32 caliber "suicide special" revolver? mmm? I wonder how it got that name? And I'm not too sure if I like the sound of that one? I've heard of "saturday night special", but suicide special? I wouldn't attempt to fire it until I knew how it got that moniker.:rolleyes: Perhaps as the settlers were moving out west and before the indians could scalp em alive they'd have the sterling 32 as a last resort? Or perhaps in the day where everyone was packing you'd shoot a guy with that 32 and he'd whip out his Colt 45 Peacemaker.

looks to be a cheap copy of the colt new line. many if these types of guns were made in small factories and store/house branded (you could get your store name on them if you bought enough).

sterling appears to be a house brand for many different makers and stores
