    Hey Curly,

    Folks on this Forum thrive on questions like the one you posed. Don't apologize.

    That said, its real tough to estimate prices without pictures. Think you can get one and post it here? You'd have a better chance of getting knowledgable feedback.

    Police Positive Special in 32-20

    Curly.

    Please give us a chance, I just got home from work and opened up the Colt Forum. As mentioned a photo is most helpful but since you didn't post one I will try to give an answer. The 32-20 is very desireable and if the gun is in top condition than it sounds like a good buy. When buying a collectable the condition always plays a large part on the value. Make sure that the bore is good and the action is tight (usually not a problem on a Colt). Does the gun appear to be in original condition? Original grips? Here is a couple of photo's of the original Police Positive Special:
    This one has the hard rubber grips

    These have the walnut grips. Shown in the three barrel lengths. 4", 5" & 6"

    Hope this helps.

    Whenever I see the phrase "not even a turn ring" in the description of a gun that has been out of production for decades, I have to worry about a possible refinish. Yes, it is possible for new guns to be decades old, but with every additional decade the odds rise that a particular gun has been refinished.

    So yes, pics would help. If the answer is that the gun is not refinished, then that seems like a great price. If it has been refinished, it's not so great.

    I'm replying the first time I saw your post, if that helps you understand forum responsiveness. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the views your initial post got came from guest viewers, who are by their nature not responders.

    with a good bore price is good, even for a shooter. those .32-20's are an addiction.

    32-20 chambered guns may have bottom out desire wise a few years ago and now "may" be coming back as collectable/shootables. Ammo will cost twice as much or more than 38 special and thats if you can find it, although cowboy action shooting has made it more available. Reloading helps offset any price difference. If the caliber is OK with you then that is what counts, finding a buyer for a 32-20 revolver is much more work than finding a buyer for a 38 special if you were to try and sell. Like others have said, pictures will let us know if its original or reblued.
