    Hi I have a .32 US revolver company gun that I inheireted. I was wondering what this gun might be worth and how do you load it. It has serial number 46850 on the trigger guard. The cylinder does not swing out on this gun. It is double action. I think the cylinder might come out to load it? although ther is a cut away on the right side of the body to maybe load one by one? There is a little button under a pin and the front of the cylinder of this gun that I dont know what it does. Any help would be apreciated. I would also like to have a copy of an owner manual? does anyone know when this gun was made?

    Thanks

    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).
