* Smith & Wesson Model 30

.32 Long. 2" barrel length. SN: 682985. Double action revolver with notch and ramp sights, and an early flat serrated cylinder release. Nickel plate finish with case hardening to hammer and trigger. Checkered walnut grips have coin S&W medallions to both sides. Features a fluted 6-shot swing out cylinder and 3-screw improved I-frame with a pinned barrel. 


Fair to good. Bore is bright. Finish has light scratching overall, and right side of barrel has a cluster of pit marks toward muzzle. Cylinder release does not function properly and cylinder will not swing open unless it is forced open by hitting your palm against the obverse side. Cylinder has some slight wiggle to it. Timing appears to be good. 

Estimate: $300 - $500
