Re: US Revolver Company .32
the manual for using the U.S. Revolver Co. Double Action is usually printed on the box they came.
the solid frame double action my be loaded and unloaded one at a time thru the lot in the recoil sheild or the cylinder removed and loaded and unloaded that way.
the main serial number location is under the left grip panel on the left side of the grip frame. this is the location of any letter code to the serial number. the medium frame 32 S&W double action serial number 46850 no letter code =1915 (about 10,000 made that year) and the serial nunber E 46859 = 1928 (3,900 made that year).
