    Smith & Wesson Model No. 2 Old Model Revolver, (a.k.a. Model No. 2 Army)
    .32 cal rim fire metallic cartridge.
    NOTE: This revolver has a somewhat different story to tell. In 1960 a bad guy showed up at my father–in-law’s house and tried to rob him using this pistol….and it was loaded. It is missing the cartridge ejector lug…otherwise it is in decent condition. The crook was obviously a “black powder guy.”

    I live in Montreal.

    These two sidearms were not "private purchases".

    Finding decent ACW holsters is always a challenge.

    Ok, I was just asking. My Grandad was from Eardley, just outside Gattineau, across the river from Ottawa. He moved to the States back in the 20s.

    Nice collection you've got going there, congrats.
