Arminius HW3 in .32 S&W Long

Picked this up for a short song at a gun show just because I like strange and unusual revolvers. Okay, it's not a top of the line anything. 7 shot, short barrel, plastic grips, transfer bar firing pin. Timing seems OK. Lockup is good. Anyone know anything about these like when and where they were manufactured and when imported to the US? This one has no import markings on it of any kind. Has three proofmarks on the crane and the same three repeated on the frame at the crane insert. Made in Germany on right side of frame above trigger guard. Serial number on crane and frame is 114XXX.

Anyone know anything about this? Is it safe to shoot with some moderate 32 S&W long factory ammo?

As long as the timing, etc. are OK, it should be fine. Certainly adequate for .32 Long.
