About the Handgun:
Seecamp pistols are spurless hammer double-action only designs. They are hand machined and fitted from stainless steel. Manufacture has always emphasized quality over quantity - this explains why values can exceed the company's retail pricing.
About the Manufacturer:
This company was founded in 1973 as a family business specializing in Ludwig Seecamp's patented double action conversion of the Browning 1911 semi-auto pistol. Nearly 2000 such DA conversions were done from the early 1970s to the early 1980s. In 1981 they introduced their own small caliber pistol, the LWS .25. Around 1985 the LWS .25 was discontinued and the LWS .32 was introduced. 2003 saw the introduction of the LWS .380 pistol, which is identical in size and weight to the LWS .25 or the LWS .32.
About the Cartridge:
Initially introduced in europe, this semi-rimmed centerfire cartridge came to the United States when Colt introduced its 'Pocket Model' semiautomatic pistol. Like the .25 ACP, the .32 ACP is considered by many as too weak to be an effective self-defense round. But it has been an extremely popular caliber, notably by the fact that practically all minor and major manufacturers of autoloading handguns in the world have built millions of small pocket autoloaders in .32 Auto.
