Re: Value: S&W .32 new departure hammerless 1896
You are right, the title does imply the question. But many folks use the forum to find out what a gun is, when it was made, or the general history of the model, without really caring about value.
With all guns value depends mainly on condition; they made tens of thousands of those guns and collectors generally pay big bucks only for ones in like new condition. So, value ranges from nothing for a rusted, broken relic to the $700 Jim Hauff mentions.
Since the firing pin detracts from the value, you might check with a couple of gunsmiths to get an estimate on repair.
