    Cleaned up my 32-20 today

    I finally got to bring my recently purchased 32-20 home and clean it up. I got the broken cylinder pin out and also the bushing. The gun cleaned up nicely and I was able to find a cylinder pin matching the condition of the gun. A nice even smooth patina on all the parts with nothing cleaned to bare metal! The protected screws and trigger still had the fire blue. The bore is very good as well as the chambers. All the original springs are still in the gun as well as the original hammer with perfect notches. The grips are original to the gun and even have the owners name and date scratched in them. Jessie James 1872? The other panel has a faint pencil written date of June 27 1903. And what appears to be $12.00. At least the guy did his dirty work on the inside of the gun and out of sight instead of scratching initials on the bottom of the grips.

    Looks like a nice, honest piece. Really like the long barrels any more. Just classic looking. Thanks.

    Great looking SAA. I'd love to find one like that with the 7 1/" barrel.
