I have a Savage 32 Semi-Auto (SN 198108). It was recently graded by a gunsmith at 92% and is in excellent condition. The gun has been fired at least one time, that I know of, in the mid 50's, because I wanted to know how many phonebooks it could shoot through. The gun originally belonged to my grandmother and may have never been fired until the phonebook test. I believe this gun was manufactured about 1919 but don't know for sure. Based on the serial number and pictures, can you tell me when it was manufactured and a ball park value?

If more pictures are needed let me know what you want to see and I'll get them posted.

Thanks for the help,

Lots people will tell you the 32 APC is not a good defense round that said with today's ammo I think it steps a notch or two.

I carry a .38 spl or .380 with Golden Sabers but I would not hesitate to carry a 32 ACP with Golden Sabers.

Keep it it's very collectable. Just my humble opinion.
