    Hello, I have from my father in law, a US Revolver 32 cal 5 shot top break. I found the serial # under the grip and it reads B 20367. It is in good condition. Has a small chip in the black grip at the butt end, and could use a good cleaning. Just wondering what it is worth, and if it is safe to fire with some Magtech Centerfire Cartridges he has with it. Thanks for you help in advance.
