Hi Tom: The 32 is 6" overall and the barrell itself 3 3/8" I discovered on the grip another number PS 1286. Also on the trigger gaurd - the ejection side the letter "K". The grips have F N on them.
The clip has F N and under that 7.65 m/m. Had it out this weekend and it fired perfectly. I am hoping to see if this firearm has any history and value? I have had it for 40 years.graphicgraphic

Thanks Ed

Hi,

You have a Model 1910 "New Model". It was chambered for the 7.65 and the 9mm short. It has a 3.5" barrel and is Blued with molded plastic grips. It has the triple safety features of the 1906 Model, second variation. It was adopted by police forces around the world.

There were 710,266 manufactured between 1912 and 1983

Values are: excellent-$425, very good-$300, good-$250, fair-$175, poor-$125.

I hope this helps you,

Tom
