    Had to do it!

    Don't know why but I picked this up a couple of hours ago. I guess I'm officially hyphenated, 32-20, price was right $500.00 + taxes otd. The gun store where I purchased it at also had a Ruger Blackhawk in 32-20 probably brought in as a package with the rifle. It was priced $200.00 higher than the Marlin, may go back later and see if they will come down some, it would be fun to have a revolver to pair up with this rifle. Will need to
    pick up dies and components to feed it, probably a mold as well. 20200324_153613.jpg

    Can't beat that with a squirrel tail... Fantastic snag. I'd love a Ruger in 32-20.

    Looks good and at a good price! The Blackhawk seems a bit high. Keep your eyes open. There are a lot of old S&Ws and Colt double action revolvers in 32-20 for a lot less. I picked up a Colt Army Special 32-20 a couple of years ago for $400 that is a real shooter.

    The Blackhawk may handle it, but I had a 32-20 rifle that I couldn't help using at its most useful spec, and that was WAY above what my handgun could shoot. Of course my 32-20 handgun was a Colr Police Positive, about as light a 32-20 as there is, but comparing recommended loads for pistol and rifle in several handbooks I decided that there was no load that would satisfactorily work in both, even if I upgraded my handgun to something much heftier. No reason to have both rifle (or carbine) and revolver in the same caliber if you're afraid of mixing the rounds and ruining one or the other. Might wanta research this before you jump in.

    Why can't I ever find rifles like that? That's a great catch. All I see these days are tupperware rifles in "popular" calibers. I'd have to get the Ruger! Go back and make an offer, but be prepared to walk away. With things the way they are these days, they might jump on it. You can crank up the speed on that rifle compared to the old originals, and shoot some heavier cast bullets.

    Nice buy on that rifle, and the Blackhawk may be a buy if it is a Buckeye. A well worn Buckeye sold for $680 last week on Gunbroker, I was the next to last bidder. You ought to check out the Blackhawk, it should handle the heavy loads.
