I recently purchased a Colt Officers Model 32 (.32 Colt NP) at a local gun store, serial number 6568XX. I know this chambering is relatively uncommon but what's the story on these revolvers? I've read that some (or most?) were sold to the the Ohio National Guard just prior to WWII and eventually disposed of as surplus by the ONG. Were they ever sold commercially? This revolver appears to have seen little or no use and still had cosmoline in the barrel and cylinder chambers. BTW, there were two more in the LGS when I left.
