I have been looking for a S&W Regulation Police model in .32 S&W Caliber ever since I swapped a later Model I had. I can safely say this caliber and model are one of the most accurate S&W revolver's I have ever owned, and after swapping off my later one read many interesting facts about this model. They built this model on the smaller I Frame. It had many spin off revolver's worth a mention after it's introduction as, the 22-32 Beakeart .22 caliber Target revolver, the 32-38 Terrier snub nose model, and later the Famous larger-J-frame was built off the earlier I frame terrier lines. The Pre-War regulation Police model's are all hand fitted, and had supreme accuracy as I knew from owning a later one but learned after swapping it that the reasons are their frames are built with bearing like surfaces to provide precise smooth action function, and a special hand ratchet to allow this revolver perfect cylinder to barrel alignment is the reason they are tack drivers. I was at a local gun show and spotted this revolver. It was on a vendors table and as usual most of the revolver guys were handling the larger magnum hand guns this seller had an little interest was shown towards the tiny Regulation Police model, which allowed me as a buyer to barter a great deal out the door at $225.00. I was intrigued with the sideplate of this revolver and planned on doing some research when I got home on it. I contacted the Evansville, Indiana Police Department yesterday and sure did Not expect the response I received. A very Nice desk Sergeant took the time to look Chief Anderson's records up for me and responded telling me he was the chief of Police from 1926-1928 for The Evansville Indiana Police force. he explained Chief Anderson was the head of an experimental Mounted Patrol division back in this time frame. He also added that the chief did indeed carry a S&W revolver and it was nickel in finish along with being .32 S&W caliber. I will be doing a factory letter on this revolver as well to see if it shipped with the Moth of Pearl grips that are on it. I did contact a friend who collects Regulation Police models last evening and he shared with me that he had a model similar to this one but it was Blued in finish and S&W used the Mother of Pearl filler piece in his stepped grips frame which lettered with these Mother Of Pearl grip's. He also said he had heard that the factory used aluminum filler pieces on their Nickel revolver's to blend better with the finishes but had never seen a factory Regulation Police revolver wearing Mother of Pearl grips in Nickel finish before mine, so a letter will sort this out. I can tell you that these grips are real Mother of Pearl as they are not exact in six or thickness typical of this material. When I got this Revolver home I disassembled it, to clean many years of old sludgy oil from it's internals. It was unbelievably clean inside and showed no rust or wear. I saw it had been fired little as well, and lock's up tight as a vault. I picked up a box of factory ammo yesterday for it, and plan on a range shoot with it today. With the sky rocketing revolver prices lately this little revolver can still be found once in awhile at decent prices and is fun to shoot.
