    You won't find any guns marked like that.

    The 32-20 is properly known as the 32-20 Winchester Center-Fire.
    Or more commonly, 32-20 WCF.

    UMC (Union Metallic Cartridge Company) was only one company that made 32-20 WCF ammo.

    They later became part of Remington, and Reminton still uses the UMC headstamp on it's econemy ammo line.

    Heres more:

    http://www.leverguns.com/articles/paco/3220wcf.htm

    But if you Google 32-20 WCF you will get about 33,500 hits covering the guns, ammo, reloading it, history, etc.

    I think the OP was inquiring about .32-40 not .32-20. But Marlin and Winchester offered it in their lineup back in the day.

    Oops!

    Senior moment! :eek:

    But the same applies to the 32-40 WCF.

    There were:
    32-40 WCF & 32-40 Ballard which were the same thing.

    32-40 Remington (UMC) which was smaller, and chambered in the Remington Rolling-Block #1 Sporting rifle.

    32-40 Bullard, which was a proprietary cartridge for the Bullard single-shot & lever-action rifles made by them.

    UMC only made cartridges, not firearms.
