The 32 Safety First Model D.A. Revolver was also known as the 32 Safety Hammerless New Departure and Lemon Squeezer. Manufactured between 1888 and 1902, there were a total of 91,417 produced. 32 S&W Caliber. 5-shot fluted cylinder. This revolver has a 3" round barrel; the model was made in 2", 3" and 3&1/2" round barrels. Serial numbering from 1 to 91417.
Known to many as the "Safety Hammerless", this gun was unusual in three major respects. The hammer was concealed, and thus the gun could only be fired double-action, and a safety bar set onto the backstrap had to be simultaneously squeezed to allow for firing. the origin of one nickname "Lemon Squeezer" is obvious. The size is small, so this piece of new technology was also truly a pocket hideaway revolver. It was made on the break open principle, a significant detail of the first model is the location of the knurled barrel release at the back center of the topstrap; rather than on the sides.
Featured in this auction is a used S&W 32 Safety, first model. Thsi is a .32 cal double action, top break revolver with a 3" barrel. Mechanically very good but the nickel plating is only about 50%. Black plastic grips are very good and there is a little light pitting in the bore, but I would rate the bore well above average for a gun of this vintage.
