    colt 32 auto

    I have a colt 32 auto that my grandfather left me. It has a 1800 something patient on it and it seems to shoot crooked. I did notice that the slide on it is loose and maybe this could be the cause. Can this be heated up to cause it to expand a little to take the looseness out of it?

    I wouldn't do anything to it. It's worth more as it is. Take it to a reputable gunsmith and let them look at it to determine if it's shootable. The old Colt 32's were not know for their accuracy anyway.

  4. Red Hat is right on do not do anything to it as it is worth more as is. I would just keep it in the family and past down.

    NO, NO, NO!!! It's old enough and been shot enough that it doesn't suprise me that the slide is a bit loose. Never heat a slide up to adjust anything. You are messing with the heat treat. The heat may also warp the slide and ruin it. This gun is an antique and could be worth quite a bit. Don't do anything to it. Put it on a shelf and look at it but don't touch it with a torch.
