Discussion in 'Handguns: Revolvers' started by jski, Sep 24, 2020.
In this time of crazy buying and stalled production, even milsurp .32 autos are flying off the shelves. Two of my LGS's who decided to carry the Zastava M70's in .32 have sold out of several orders. One of those shops sold cases of Fiocchi ammo they'd had on the shelves since the last craziness. It comes and goes depending on demand, I think. The .32ACP may make a brief, brilliant come-back now that thousands of .32's have been sold to new users but, those new users will sock-drawer those guns fairly quickly. At least, that's my thought.
Nice collection. I have never seen a Hungarian P-37, very nice 911 style. Thanks for sharing.
Dang now I want a replacement barrel for my Pico in 32NAA. Who would I talk to to tell me just how terrible and expensive an idea it would be to have a barrel cut for that? I'm mostly joking.
For 32 fans it appears this is our best bet:
i have the dao version.
what i would really like is a LCRX with a three inch tube. The Charter version bothers me in that it would seem the company has not corrected the poa/poi problem on the assembly line.
Sadder still is that Charter Arms has to be fully aware of the issue and have said or did nothing !!
As to the Ruger LCR and LCRx in 327 FM, like you, I waited for a 3" barrel model. I finally decided to go ahead and buy the 2" barrel LCRx hoping, as has been my luck in the past, that the 3" barrel model would soon follow. Very pleased with all of my Ruger 327's.
need an LCR in 327.
Voice inside my head: But it has six shots instead of five... and you like 32 calibers so much...
What’s need got to do with anything?
I've explained this before, so I'll be brief but the reason .32 NAA isn't supported is the gun companies will say they don't see a demand for it and they cite lack of ammo, so if you ask the ammo companies to make ammo for it they will say they don't see demand for it and cite lack of guns in the caliber.
It's a cycle of doom and it's disconcerting to know that major figures in gun media aren't covering certain calibers to get them more attention because what topics they talk about gets picked up by a lot of people and it plants a seed in the market's customer base.
.32 ACP is another one that's woefully supported by the industry in the US at least in terms of modern pistols. Sure you can get a repro of the Colt 1903, but for a pocket pistol your options are Kel Tec and Seecamp. Would be nice to have a lower recoiling option in the .380 micro pistols like the LCP that's not .22 rimfire and the industry can't use the "lack of ammo" excuse for .32 ACP because, in normal times, there's plenty of .32 ACP available.
The industry simply doesn't want to make something they don't think will sell and after seeing the Lucky Gunner video on .32's, that video caused a stir when it came out and still is, they're wrong about the lack of demand or interest in .32's. It's not 1981 anymore, we have modern science and technology to study and deduce that the .32's are not useless and actually have practical value for self defense.
So you’re both a BIG fan of the 32s and you won’t buy a 32?
But I don't carry it much.
Instead I carry my Smith and Wesson 431PD.
It's a 32 H&R Magnum, weighs 13.3 oz, is quite small, and has a six shot cylinder.
I think it's a great little carry gun. No bigger than a Smith 22 caliber revolver, and much more powerful.
Uh... no. About the only .32's I don't have is .32 NAA and .32-20, but that's more an issue of lack of guns and reloading dies in .32 NAA and because .327 does everything I want .32-20 to do.
Excellent! Glad to hear it.
I’m focusing in a 32 H&R Magnum snubby for carry purposes. Probably the LCRx … unless there’s a problem with that I’m unaware of?
