I inhereted a 32 Winchester OTG revolver with a Smith & Wesson Springfield Mass Patent. First patent date March 27, 1894 and the last September 14, 1909. It has a 5" barrel and is overall 11" My questions are what does the OTG mean? Do you know if it takes Wincherster/S & W short and long .32 ammunition? It is in excellent condition with only 30 40% bluing wear on the barrel and cylinder; any guess on the value range for insurance purposes?

I examined the < 32 Winchester OTG > on the barrel's side, with a microscope, and it is a miss strike. I am told this is rare but not totally unusual. You are correct it should be CTG. The serial number (51265) and design make it a 1905 hand-eject model. The 3rd. Change series were serial numbers between 45,201 to 65,700 and made from 1909 to 1915. Your information opened the door for me to get the correct designation. Thank you
