    Friend of mine has 2 Smith revolvers; .38 and .32 that he thinks are over 60 years old and is needing a value on them. They called Smith and they couldn't really give a value. Any sources that I could help him with. They were his fathers and given to him in the 60's by his father and are unfired.

    Thanks for your help.

    Pics, description, caliber and serial range of each will help.

    Unfired ? You take the 38 for $100 and i will take the 32 for $75 since they are old and obsolete !

    If they don't have the Hillary Hole, they're worth $1,000 more than any current Smith made.



    That's the truth, I swear to god man, you can look it up.

    Bigdog, as you know you will find plenty of advice with S&W revolvers on TS.Com.

    However, they have made 31 different models of .32 and .38 calibers over the years. Need model number or name. Need barrel length. Need condition, never been fired on a very old gun means nothing, could be covered in rust. Does it have the original box and paper work, that alone can raise the price a lot.

    Actualy the K-32 eventually became the Model 16- not the 14 (14's are 38's)
    To get a correct value we would need good pictures and ser#'s
    Could be worth alot- or not alot..
    The Smith and Wesson forum is a great place to get info on any S&W- you will need pictures!!
