Hello there I am helping a customer of mine from work. He has an OLD H&R
Revolver 32 S&W nickle plated Factory bobed hammer. I got all of that from
this thread. He has had it for 20+ years never fired it, kept it in a box with
the one box of MODERN 32 S&W ammo. I am trying to help him sell it so he
can buy a small CCW pistol.

I have a bunch of photos I will post. All SER# match. Finish is good but you
can see some pitting in the nickle finish and I did my best to get photos
of that.

just trying to help the old guy out. No one in his family wants it so its
going to be sold once I figure out AGE, Type, ammo its capeable of shooting
ect and Value to ask. he was offered 100$ by a couple of guys but I told
him to let me investigate it a little more.

H&R .32 Premier CTGE last date on top rib is 4/7/96 (that is last pat date)





















Thanks for any help you can offer me.

I got one of those. H&R put the cartridge designation on the left side of the barrel only on revolvers made for smokeless powder. Good to go with modern ammo. Decent little gun,$100 is the right ballpark.

Very nice little pistol. The 1939 shows the Premier available in both 22 LR and 32 S&W (This is the short cartridge). Course the catalog shows it with an out side hammer. From your photos it looks like some one has done a very nice job of removing the spur. This was a modification once blessed by Skeeter Skelton for pocket revolvers. There's also a rumor I'd seen on this or another site that a bunch of these Premiers were issued to women couriers (don't know if they were soldiers or civilians) during world war II. Would make an interesting story to go along with this fine old piece
