Hello,

Following her uncle's passing my wife and I took ownership of an H&R The American Double Action six-shot .32 revolver (five digit serial number: 47XXX), which had originally been her grandfather's. It is stamped on the left side of the octagonal barrel with:

H&R Arms Company
Worcester, Mass, U.S.A.

And on the panel directly below that:

32 S&W CTGE.

It appears to be in working order, but the finish is degraded to the point where I'm only guessing it is nickel. I'm interested in:

• the approximate year of its manufacture
• if it can accept modern ammunition
• any recommendations that can be made in terms of replacing the gun's grips (both sides of which have partial sections broken off).

I appreciate your consideration and look forward to your response. Thank you.

According to the "Blue Book", those guns were made from 1898 to 1941. The ones like yours with the caliber marking date from 1905 and were made to use smokeless powder. 1905-1941 is pretty "approximate" but is the best I can come up with.
