    can any of you guys tell me anything about this pistol? it was my grand fathers, but thats about all i know about it. i'd like to know how to disassemble it for cleaning if any of you guys can point me in the right direction. also how did they ever hit anything with sights like this? :x:

    I don't recognize it off of the top of my head or a quick google search, maybe if you type out what is stamped into the slide it might give us a little more to go off of. Maybe someone else will recognize it and give a model.

    You can always call the manufacturer and see if they can mail you a manual for it, it is at least a good starting point.

    does the trigger guard pull down? It might have a takedown like a CZ.

    looking at it the trigger guard and frame aren't one piece so i guess thats possible but i can't get it to move. it looks like there is a pin holding it in at that top.

    shouldn't there be a way to lock the slide back?

    Apparently this book has a diagram. You library should be able to inter-library loan it for you. I have a Remington Model 4 in .32 and a box of about 15 or 20 rounds of .32 short from the '40s.

    What you have there is a pocket or backup gun, no need to use the sights for long :o

    from what i find on the internet about it it looks like it might be a model 1 but it doesn't say that anywhere on it. how do i find out what kind of ammo it takes, on the slide it just says 32 caliber, nothing about shorts.

    Given the size of the pistol I can almost guarantee it will only take .32 short.

    Navy Arms sells some expensive repro .32 short ammo :)

    It's not like the .32ACP is a really hot cartridge. I would guess the gun isn't worn out mechanically? You could probably still shoot it.

    Just start taking it apart. It's not like it's some mystery inside, just springs and shit. Take pics as you go to remember and you'll be fine.
