I just got this in the mail earlier today. It's a Model 70 .32acp made in 1967 in as new condition. Sorry about the poor quality picture.

There's  a guy on the S&W & Beretta Forums who has a nice one. The prices on them go up constantly.

Nice!

One thing I like about these is they are usually more mid sized instead of very small like a Tomcat, Seecamp, etc.

Have kind of been watching for maybe an 81 or 82 F/FS in .32ACP but never seen anything beyond the BB version. Not as pricey as the Walthers in .32.

There were a few batches of the 81FS imported a few years ago. They occasionally pop up on Gunbroker but sell quickly for $1,000.00 or more. I don’t believe that the Model 82 has been imported since the 1980s. You can probably find a decent 81 as there were a lot of surplus 81s imported over the last couple of years.

The BBs seem to be most findable

A little over a year and a half ago/2 years ago, up until COVID shortages started, you could get Police/Mil surplus.  Big batch was imported then,  It's when I got both my 81 and 84, and for an excellent price.  That stock was bought up during this COVID buying bubble.
