cant find .32 rifle

I am attempting to find a traditional .32 cal percussion rifle in youth size, or a decent priced full size rifle I can make kids size. I'm not really having a lot of luck. Anyone have any ideas? Evidently squirrel guns arenít that popular anymore.

Partly what's to blame is light demands for barrels. .32 will foul fairly quickly and have to be cleaned out or you may get a ball stuck midway going down.

Consider going to .38, and use a light powder charge if recoil is an issue.

i want a 32c flintlock but even for me a fullsize rifle that I want, is either in 1-48 twist and I want something with only a roundball twist like 1-70 or so!

even the 36 caliber rifles are hard to find. I might just end up in a .45 and loadinging it real light. There seems to be a lot more .45 kits on the market.

Pedersoli has a couple of .32 cal rifles as shown, and then there is the Traditions Crockett.

CVA Squirrel Rifle sounds like just what you need. They are available on the used market.
