Smith & Wesson Pre Model 16 K-32 Masterpiece Mfd. 1956
A factory letter accompanies this fantastic K-32 confirming the configuration and detailing its original shipment on April 11, 1956 to the Belknap Hardware Co. in Louisville, Kentucky. This fabulous K-32 is one of the few examples built on the five-screw K-frame with the wide rib heavy barrel and bright blue finish.
Included is a copy of the original sales invoice from the Smith & Wesson Historical Foundation.The gun rates a true 99%+ on any scale and will be near impossible to ever upgrade. The original bright blue finish is wonderful with only the faintest of collector type handling evidence present. The original numbers matching checkered walnut diamond magna grips are super crisp and every bit as mint as the gun itself. The bore and cylinder chambers are mint and the mechanical working order is flawless. A serious addition to any collection!
