You have a Safety " Cycle " Automatic ( automatic means ejection ) Revolver, 3rd Model, 2nd Variation. Serial number dates it to 1915. In 1915 serial numbers G0001-G17100 were used. Made for modern ammunition. It is not unusual to find these guns in new condition, they were bought for home protection, placed in a shoebox with a box of ammo, at the top of the closet and forgotten. Hope that helps
I hope you have a copy of one of Goforth's books and looked that up.
I hate to think anyone carries around that information in their head.

-----------------------------------
Modern jacketed 32acp ammo will drop in that revolver and fire.
It will screw it up and make the action loose with the first shot.
Don't do it.
The tiny screw that is the latch pin pivot goes through a hole in sheet metal. The hole in the sheet metal with stretch oblong from the force of bullet friction of a jacketed bullet in the bore.

Get 32 S&W cast bullet ammo or handload it or ... not as good with a semi rim, handload 32acp ammo with 1 gr of powder and a soft cast bullet.

-----------------
In that condition, that gun is worth extra, maybe $100 instead of $50.
Try to have $200 worth of fun from owning it.

"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
