Was assessing my ammo today when I stumbled across a few thousand .32 rounds I forgot I had. Honestly don't remember when I ordered so much, I only have a few p32's in the caliber. As fun as shooting a few 1000 rounds through the p32s sounds I would rather try something else. Any ideas, purely for a fun gun as I'm not looking for a .32 carry gun.

There are a lot of sweet .32s out there. Just go to your favorite auction site and search the handgun section for the word "32".

The best .32 of my small collection is a Beretta 81. It's just perfect. Be aware that spare mags are like hen's teeth though.

Cz83. You'll be hard pressed to find a better compact in that chambering.

A super fun gun to shoot that through would be the CZ VZ61 Skorpion! I got in some trouble at the range last week after mine started hitting the target hanger but boy was that fun shooting!

Are there any P32's in any other caliber? :D

That is my favorite caliber!

Colt 1903
MAB D (easy to find on auctions - inexpensive - super ergonomics)
Walther PP

Llama Especial
CZ70

Both fun to shoot at the range although the DA in the CZ is a bear. The SA is much better. The Llama is like a miniature 1911.

I have a Colt 1903. It is my all time favorite gun to shoot. My Daughter took her very first shot with this gun, and scored an absolutely perfect dead center bullseye hit with it from about 25 feet away. :D

IIRC, the Spanish made Ruby Plus Ultra had a 20-round mag too.

My favorite 32 is a well worn Beretta Tomcat. Yea, I know its a pocket gun. But it is a great little shooter, a fun little gun.

I hesitate to say it because its on my to buy list but have not yet got there and CZ stopped making them, but CZ 83 if you can find one.

I like the .32 round. Its a fun one.

Bersa makes a Thunder series pistol in 32acp. Kinda hard to find, but still available if you look around. Based on my experience with my Thunder 380, and Thunder 22, I bet its a fine pistol. 10+1. $280.

Range gun? You can't go wrong with a Colt 1903 - it's a classic, sleek design that fits the hand well and won't lose value. Surprisingly accurate if you can see the sights, which would be my one complaint about the 1903.

I'd also look into the Walther PP or PPK, or the old Mauser Hsc - both excellent pieces of German engineering from a bygone era.

1) Colt M1903
2) Savage Model 1907
3) FN Model 1910
4) Mauser HSc
5) Walther PP

bannockburn - I like your style...

I would love to have a 1903 Colt in bad enough shape that no one from here would hunt me down and beat me up for putting better sights on and some sort of finish that my under arm or belly roll sweat would not mess up.

While A 1911/.45ACP nut I feel the .32 ACP 7.65 browning short is a very underated cartridge in all respects. Many a soda can was holed with a Browning 1922 when I was younger, PP and PPk barked and yes even Ratty old Ruby autos did their share of soda container destruction. I suppose of the modern stuff if I lived where .32 was about all I could have I would go with the afore meantioned Beretta 84 series but would have a hard time choosing between the thin boy or the fat old man.

I occassionally use .32 ACP in a shell shrinker in a .308 bolt action rifle.

I would love to see someone make sort of a Pedersen device for rifles using the .32 ACP as a companion piece to say a P32.

No one would hunt for modifying your own gun..............but you might want to consider the concept of gun karma. :D

Walther PP?
Were you surprised at the suggestion, or are you not familiar with with the PP model? I think the PP is perfect for the .32 round, or the .32 is the best round for the PP.

CZ50 is a great gun if you can find one. Usually in $250.00 range.

I feel the same way. The 1903 isn't that rare of a piece, really, so I'd go for it if you could find one at the right price.

I would love to see someone make sort of a Pedersen device for rifles using the .32 ACP

YES!! Finally there would be a reason to own a 1903 Mark I!

Walther PP and PPK immediately jump to mind.

Can't something in .327 Magnum also shoot .32ACP? Or is that a grey area?

on SOG right now:

CZ70 MILITARY PISTOL .32ACP
SHG-CZ70
$189.95

If you don't have a C&R you'll have to call them to order, but I can see they're in stock right now and look in great shape:

Product Description:
Produced in 1970 by the Czech armory, these are similar to the Walther PP pistol. Good to very good condition, 3 1/2” barrel, 6” overall, single or double action and 8 round mag capacity. These were sold commercially but most were produced for police agencies under the control of the Ministry of the Interior.

I shoot .32acp through my Ruger Single Six chambered in .32 H&R Mag. The jacketed bullets require much less clean up.

Claude Clay
January 21, 2013, 12:35 AM
given any thought too firing it in revolvers?

smith 332 or a vaquaro in 32 H&R Magnum takes 32 long and 32 acp--it has a semi-rim. also a nagant x38 with a 32 acp cylinder. some older 32 top-brakes are great fun also.

the colt 1903 is slly expensive now. but a walter M4 or a mauser 1914 may still be under $500. saw a 1910 FN auction tonite for $389 + 50 in fees. seemed reasonable for its quality.
