.32 caliber?

I've been looking for a .32 for a little while and only find them in kits or custom made. I don't trust my ability to build one yet & can't afford $800. So where can I find a .32 ready to go with out breaking the bank? I really enjoy shooting my .50 percussion cap and want the .32 for squirrels/rabbits.

Re: .32 caliber?

Depending on what 50 you have ,maybe a 32 drop in barrel?

Re: .32 caliber?

The drop in barrel will be a good option if you can do it. That being said, I had the same idea as you with the .32cal. but I got a good barrel and built one.......didn't shoot worth beans! Tried a bunch of different stuff but just couldn't get it to shoot. If I had it to do over again, I'd go with a .40cal. They are known for their accuracy. (Talkin' round balls here..)

A drop in barrel is an option but its going to be VERY heavy!
Customs are very expensive.
I have a 32 TC Cherokee and really like it.Keep an eye on gunbroker,gunauction,and gunsamerica.Got mine on there.Excellent shape and shipped to your door.

.32 or .36, both are more than accurate enough for hunting squirrels. time at the bench is the key. squirrels are a pretty small target, but are a ton of fun with a muzzleloader.

Re: .32 caliber?

thank for all the info.

As far as bench time with it I guess if I had to I might be able to force myself to go shoot it more.

Re: .32 caliber?

There is also the Traditions Crockett rifle.

I picked up an inexpensive 32 in-line a few years back. Looks like s 22 rf but loads from the muzzle, even has the grooves for mounting a 22 RF scope, At 25 yds, it will put five shots on a postage stamp. They come up cheap on the auctions a few times per year. CVA also made a nice little 32 squirrel rifle with double set triggers. The sights need to be replaced to gain full accuracy. Also, CVA made a 36 varmint rifle on their Bobcat platform. Single trigger and they are rare as hens teeth. Navy Arms also sold a 36 rifle. I see them very rarely on on line auctions
