Best Answer

First you have to determine the make and model. Go to the library stacks and find The Standard Catalog of Firearms. Look through it and all the other books on that shelf until you find its picture. These books will tell you the range of dates this model was manufactured. If the gun has a serial number, you may find a listing that shows the range of serial numbers for each year. Or maybe not. Many old guns did not have serial numbers, some were numbered but the same numbers used several times, and some manufacturers' lists have gone to the recycle bin long ago.

NO! The .32 ACP is loaded to much higher energies than the .32 S&W Revolver cartridge, and cannot be safely fired in a revolver- especially one that old. You will also have problems extracting the fired cartridge case.

It is not a Winchester revolver. It might be chambered for the '.32 Winchester' cartridge (.32/20) which leads me to believe it might be Spanish. What are the markings on the gun?
