You can borrow my pic, but mines a 38 special:
Ready for the next sally.
My .32 hole puncher, one of the first "snubbies".
Bobbed hammer, mix of blue and nickel finish (maybe some rust too, adds character).
About a months work to get it into the condition it is now, before it was a hunk of rust that didn't work.
Tell us a little more about your 32 hole puncher. I vote this one as most character.
Circa-1900 Forehand Arms .32 S&W-Long revolver.
Well the bobbed hammer was done because the single action sear was completely worn, so it was a DAO gun to start.
The firing pin is limp, had to file it down just enough where it would indent the primer but not dig so far into it it would jam the cylinder from rotating. As a result it now suffers from light primer strikes sometimes, easier than pulling the whole gun apart. I still can't figure if it's the hammer spring or the modified firing pin. Just got some federal rounds for it (light primers), if they all go boom it's because of the hammer spring (edit: just took it out, runs 100% with Federal Champion).
The latch spring broke, had to make a new one out of an old(er?) hammer spring.
I'll need to take a few more pictures, the one I gave is from a few months ago.

Nice Yankee :yup:
My snubby collection mirrors yours :hand10:
Time to get this thread back "up top", so the forum's fresh meat can enjoy.
Just scored a clean pre-lock 642; hoping to take delivery today. It has a set of Ahrends stocks, and the price was certainly right, so I couldn't pass it up. Also snagged a square-butt M-60 a while back. You know how a T-Grip on a round butt makes it usable, but still not hand-filling? Well, a T-Grip on a square butt J frame is amazingly better. Not so great for concealment, but a lot more enjoyable to shoot, for sure.
I'm getting to the point where, every time I see a pre-lock J frame (especially a pre-96 example), I'll try to buy it if it isn't exhorbitantly priced.
